    Master? Well I would say you spend about 10-20 years using it everyday
    Still probably not enough to master it but after a year or two you should have a decent handle on more common aspects if it.

    Seriously though when you get right down to it I don;t think it is possible to truly master any programming language that is still being produced as every couple of years they add more to it than you could master in that period of time.

    Of course some people use the term master pretty loosely. Personally I have been using VB classic for 20 years now and dot net for about 15 years and while I definitely know a lot I do not consider myself a master by any stretch nor have I ever met anyone who was. Generally when you see someone say that they have mastered something like this it is an indicator that they know very little about it and still have no clue how many things they have yet to learn about it.

    how i can master vbdotnet
    [I'm c++] Depends somewhat on your definition of 'master'. But in this respect, learning VB isn't that much different to learning other programming languages. Try 'mastering' c++ template meta-programming!

    You need to write programs. Get a book on the language (looking for high customer review scores on sites such as Amazon is a good start), write programs. Read the book. Write programs. Look on the internet for sites that provide tutorials. Write programs. Look on forums like this one. Write programs. Ask questions. Write programs.

    As your knowledge of VB increases the complexity of the VB programs you can write will increase and then at some point you'll realise you're a VB programmer! On this, just a small point. Don't try to write too complex programs to start with. You'll only get frustrated and think you can't do this. Most good programming books have graded programming exercises which can be undertaken.

    PS Did I mention that you should write programs?
