Hi,

I think the best you can do is download the SDK, and start with compiling and understanding the Tutorialx samples. Look up the DirectX calls in the SDK docs. Also read the "essay" parts of the SDK docs (DirectX Graphics/Direct3D9/Programming Guide/Getting Started).

Or if you prefer printed books, you'll find tons of "getting started with game programming using dx9" books on amazon.
