Thats way to broad of a question to be answered, not to mention it is open largely to opinion. A good approach, in my opinion, would be to pick up an intro to VB.NET book (Wrox publishes a few) and work through that book to get a good handle on things.

After that, come up with some program and try to write it based upon what you learnd in the book. Also, if the book uses example programs, you should try to write something that isn't similiar to those programs as it will be more of a challenge for you. Rinse, repeat.

Programming isn't something that you are going to be able to read just 5 books and be 100% profecient in, it takes practice (and lots of it) to become "good".

There are lots of ways to learn VB.NET well.
Should we already assume you know how to program VB.NET poorly?
Or that you don't yet know how to program in any language?
Or that you know some other language well, but want to start in on VB.NET?

I would suggest you get the free version of VB.NET, which I believe is still available as a download from the Microsoft site, if you don't already have VB.NET.

Get yourself a beginners book or two, and follow the instructions.
This won't teach you how to program well, but it will get you started.
