Note that all of these books assume you have been exposed to
programming in the past. Although some attempt to teach the rudimentary
aspects of the BASIC language exists in these books you may find many of
the concepts difficult if you have never programmed. Learning BASIC is
not difficult if you are willing to spend the time experimenting or attending
a generic class that will not cover any aspects of AutoCAD.

Kramer and John Gibb introduces and explores the VBA programming language

VBA programmer's perspective. Detailed examples teach how to access
all aspects of AutoCAD and how to interface with other automation systems
such as the Microsoft Office and Windows systems. There are chapters that
will be useful to the master as well as understandable by the beginner.
A masterful compilation that provides the missing programmer's reference for VBA.

This book is useful to both the beginner wanting a reference book and the expert wanting something that points the way into deeper aspects of VBA or Windows.
