    I am trying to learn ASP (I need to make a website using a CMS and I've been told ASP is the easiest way of doing it), also I need to use a few other features that I think can only be done with ASP.

    Does anyone know where I can find an ebook or something that will teach me ASP from scratch? Also, which programming language is better? (C++ or VB?)

    Personal preference really, I use VBscript if I "have" to.

    As far as the references go, you wont find many free references, if you want a lot of support, articles, and references why not use PHP?

    Unless you have to use ASP for this I would suggest using PHP and whichever database you will be using.

    For ASP though, has some good info to get started. If you are talking about .NET though and not just regular old ASP, then I would suggest using C#. If you already know a C style language then C# will be easier to pick up, and if you don't then C# will make it easier for you to learn other languages like Java or C++ in the future if you ever need to.

    I don't think VB is too hard to pick up but it has syntax that seems goofy to me because I learned C/C++ first and then Java - which makes me much more comfortable around C# code.
