So all I really have is 1 year of C++ under my belt and programming in general, I thought I could take upon XNA but, I don't know. Does anyone have any step by step guide on how to get down to finally being comfortable with starting XNA? I'm new to programming overall. I understand I gotta learn C# first, any books or online tutorials that are recommended for a beginner?

I have the book XNA Game Studio 3.0 Unleashed by Chad Carter? Is it a good book? And by the way, noticed it's outdated, is this a problem? Or maybe are there any easier books for XNA?

It's just, XNA seems so...intimidating, all the code just blown right in, just to start it up?

The beginner tutorials at the App Hub site are a great start. I believe you will have to actually join (membership) but it's worth it if you are really interested in learning XNA. Good luck.
