I totally disagree. It is completely possible to develop full professional applications using .net without ever calling the windows API.

API calls are only required for doing things that the .net library does not naturally support. (There are plenty of classes for animation, and .net fully supports threading without using the windows API)

My suggestion would be that you get yourself a copy of Pro C# 2008 and the .NET 3.5 platform[^] by Andrew Troelsen. It's an excellent guide to .net. It covers all the bases, including how to do platform invoke (i.e. API calls). Then, when you hit up against a task that .net doesn't support, you can google for specific help in tackling that task via the windows API.
