It couldn't have been the Help-file (available under F1). You obviously have internet, so that's your primary resource - CodeProject and MSDN. The first is the ideal starterplace for new projects, the articles provide a nice basis for new applications, and the forums are usually open. The second is the ideal reference, explaining how the building-blocks that are available, look like.
Best recommendation is a good book, not an ebook, but one you can use to kill small animals. Both Manning and O'Reilly offer a nice range of books.
You're welcome, hope that more people respond with something more original
