Pre-requisites to learn SolidWorks API

Just a combo of SolidWorks and a Programming language (VB, VB.NET, C#, and C++) can make you API master. I prefer VB not because I feel it is more simple but I can understand a bit of it.

Recently I flipped over CADSharp and found a massive Video library teaching how to play with SolidWorks macro along with huge Macro library with many free examples.
