How to use DirectX?

I was wondering if anyone knows about directx. I know a fare amount of C++ and I want to learn DirectX. I was wondering if anyone knows some good tutorials. I would also like to know if I have to download the DirectX SDK or if Visual Studio 2012 Express comes with the Windows SDK (which includes directx) Thanks!

You have to download the DirectX SDK.
This site is great:
I do like that ite but it is expensive

Yeah, I was just about to say that when you posted the last time. I have actuall gotten a book before I got to the premium section of the tutorial.
I just found out on the msdn page that apparently visual studio comes with the windows SDK. I think the best way to learn this might be to go on msdn
Does anyone know of some good, preferably free, tutorials? (For directx)
