You are correct that the best way is the one that makes sense to the OP.

What I've found, working with other people, a GOOD way is to force them to read documentation and experiment. That's all I was saying.

HAHAHA! We have definitely work/worked with different people. I've work with both people who could easily work without an IDE and those who couldn't wipe their ass without the aid of a tour guide. There are plenty of situations where you don't get the aid of an IDE or Intellisense, so how is your newb going to get by if he's completely reliant on it, aka the tour guide?

The IDE, and Intellisense, is no replacement for the development of research skills. THAT is the most important skill you can develop as developer. No IDE or Intellisense is going to help you with that. Putting the cursor on a keyword and hitting F1 is not research.

There plenty of evidence to this right here on CP. You need only to look at the questions in QA.
