Not sure exactly, but probably 3 or 4 serious attempts.  My first 'landing' did also lead to my first 'rescue' mission, as my ship was tall and narrow so it fell over.

Probably less than five? I was in the "look up tutorials for everything" stage, so I had a pretty good idea of what I was supposed to be doing and wasn't working everything out from first principles.

 

Getting into orbit in the first place was another story though. The main reason I started looking up tutorials in the first place is because I spent an entire afternoon not being able to put anything in orbit.

I don't know about attempts but it was about 4 days of real time before I got a craft to land without a kaboom.

I really don't know. It's taken a while, but after about 250 hours I've landed a few times. I guessed 12.

Now returning from the Mün? I'll have to get back to you after another 250 hours.

Cheated my way to my first one. I could definitely do one now, though.

I don't remember, I think two maybe three because I do remember my first one and the craft landed too hard and exploded. I remember another one with the craft falling over and exploding as well

First tried in career with no knowledge on doing a TLI and failed. 2nd time in sandbox i landed but ran out of fuel on the accent. 3rd time i landed but tipped :blush: luckily i made it back to kerbin with nothing much than Brocken solar pnel. 4th time went great! and im ready for my 6th landing :D

I took, probably, 6 tries because I'm stubborn and I didn't think to look on the YouTube for help.

I, eventually, found myself here and asked.

 

I, also, learned how to rendezvous and dock from the wise minds here.

Did it on the 3rd try. First mission flopped, second mission landed and rescued other one with a rover but ascent vehicle crashed, only manned rover survived(nobody died). 3rd time worked was an rocket vtol ssto isru. 4th was a rhino powered spaceplane that was send to orbit(like x-37 b) Didn'tl and but was unmanned, it tumbled out of control in atmo.

I think 2 or 3? I've been an early player back when the altimeter couldn't measure altitude from the ground below, and I didn't plan out to land on the bright side, so I had no good measure to know my altitude and ended up crashing as a result.
