Never mind. Wrong references idea, official docs are fine.

It sounds like you want to take a programming course, not teach yourself how to program. What are your options in that regard?

The difference being? I can teach myself in a method I'm used to. I use reference material all the time, It's just an inefficient way of learning when there are probably dozens of solid programs or books out there that teach exactly what I'd be looking up, but in a very structured manner.
 
1. Have an idea for a program.
2. Design the program.
3. Write (and debug) the program.

Can't really do that when a lot of pieces to the puzzle are missing. I reference stuff when I have the tools to undertake what I'm trying to do and don't know it. When I don't have most of the tools it's time to get some sort of structure.

What you're telling me is the equivalent to telling someone who is learning basic math to figure out advanced maths by using reference books with no particular order or structure. It doesn't make sense.
