I learned everything I know from tearing apart the free scripts I downloaded at HotScripts.Com. If you can learn from examples, it's an absolutely fantastic resource.

Personally I came into ASP from a VB background but hopefully this will help you no matter where you come from - I started with "Beginning Active Server Pages 3.0" by WROX press (ISBN 1-861003-38-2).
As a programmer already I found parts of it a little preachy/basic, but after a while it levelled out and I started to actually learn stuff - and useful stuff at that.
My nature meant that after I'd learnt a certain amount I decided that it was easier to attempt to build something I wanted to build rather than go through their examples.
I found it very easy to apply what they had earlier covered to my own problems and when/if I got stuck I simply referred back to their index to look up the correct solution.
I still refer back to it from time to time when I need to check the odd thing so it's good enough to pass the test of time too :)

Many thanks for the help.
I'm pretty much the same by nature as well. Once I have a few basics under my belt, I like to get going and learn on the fly. Very interesting to learn that there is an online script database as well!
Thank God for WW. Best find I've had in years of surfing!
