I'm trying to learn VB .NET from some books and the web. I like to do the practice programs so I'm not just "reading" but "doing" what I'm learning, (or trying to learn). I'm stuck on 2 of them. I'll just post this one for now. I can write it (sort of) just using a bunch of nested if statements and so on however a friend of mine told me that's not exactly the way there wanting it done here per the instructions. So I'm sort of stuck and just need to see how it should look to satisfy the instructions.
