    I would consider you a noob!
    Grab a programming book and learn from that! Don't learn from the internet, they just don't go over some important points in enough details and there will be massive gaps in your knowledge that will stump you when you come to an actual hard problem!

    The first thing to do when tackling a programming dilemma, is to ignore the syntax, and focus on the logic. Try constructing an algorithm diagram. You could draft something out in pseudocode as well, but I always prefer the diagrams.

    I don't know what the course work entails so I can't offer specific advice but I remember mine being an LCD petrol pump display which had all the features of a working petrol pump.

    What language does it have to be in? Visual Basic?
