yup, just get his most recent XNA book as its the most fitting.
yeah, xna game studio 3.0: learn programming now seems useful, and it seems that a local chapters store may have it.
I personally highly recommend starting off in Blitz Basic 3D/2D/Max


 It is basic, easy to learn, fun, and you get an immediate introduction to handles/pointers, which is vital for progressive learning of Programming languages.
yes, i would try one of those, but i dont have a credit card and my parents dont buy things online,
so unless they release one of them as freeware, im unable to get it.

No worries man, i'll send it your way.

As for books... I think Rob Miles wrote a fairly good XNA book designed for begginers in mind. Worked a treat for me Wink Ofcourse I was also taught C# by him personally so that made it a little bit easier...
I read one of Rob Miles books too.  It's the only XNA or C# reading I've done so have nothing to compare it with however it seemed decent enough.

It was a bit too basic for my needs TBH, but ideal for a beginner.

I was just being a shameful plug monkey, i'll agree though, it suits a beginner to a tea, a very helpful book and dotted with humour throughout !

Well another programming language which is FREE and a language based on the Syntax of BASIC, is FreeBasic (http://freebasic.net/). But FreeBasic is slightly messier in terms of setting yourself up.

FreeBASIC is a completely free, open-source, 32-bit BASIC compiler, with syntax similar to MS-QuickBASIC, that adds new features such as pointers, unsigned data types, inline assembly, object orientation, and many others.
