Can anyone suggest a good book(s) on ASP.NET, ADO.NET and VB.NET, I have familiar ASP 2.0 and have used VB 6 a few times, so I’m a total newbie, to this type of thing.

One free place to start is the Quickstart tutorials. They are available on the tutorials tab on this website.

The best "starting out" book, IMO, is still "ASP.NET Unleashed", by Stephen Walther. This gives you an excellent introduction to all of the essentials.
From there, it would depend on your needs.
BTW - there is a "Book Review" forum within the ASP.NET Forums that may provide some insight. And many other .NET websites, such as the AspAlliance site, have book reviews too.

I went through ASP.NET for Dummies, and then bought ASP.NET Unleashed.

The best recommendation I can make about these books, the latter particularly, is that I never stumbled upon the issues that take up this bulk of this Getting Started forum. The books steared me past all potential ASP.NET teething problems.
Here is a sample chapter from ASP.NET, regarding the code behind method. This should illustrate how easy the book is to read, and also that it makes no presumption that you're using VS.NET.

Looking for really good books about 2005 &
Well, the title says it all. I also need a book about 2.0, but after reading the board, the answer will be "Professional ASP.NET 2.0", I suppose :).Well, what good books are there about 2005 & What ever you do, don't waste your money on Professional ASP.Net 2.0 (Wrox).  It was very elementary in its approach and it doesn't go into a lot detail.  I am still researching because I waste money again.  In the meanwhile, you might want to pre-order ASP Unleashed 2005 by Stephen Walther.

use VB.NET and C#.NET code in the same C#.NET project
All-- Here is a sample that is "off the beaten path", (at least for me). Is it possible, in an ASP.NET application, using the code-behind page building technique, to have both pages written in VB.NET and pages written C#.NET?At there is a sample that shows that, (contrary to popular belief), it IS possible to mix ASP.NET pages built with C#.NET with ASP.NET pages built with VB.NET in the same VS.NET 2003 project. Note that this is just a "fun" sample to see if it can be done and I do not recommend this practice as a "standard" way of develo...

what lang does everyone prefer? Thanks, Peter Iuvara, MCP It's a very famous debatable question in forums! I would say if you are from Java/C/C++, then C# would be easy to use for you. If you are from ASP/VB, then VB.NET would be easy for you! As long as if you follow CLS, then what ever the language you use, it's going to be the same for CLR!Sreedharhttp://www.w3coder.orgweblog I would agree with that ... just curious as to what user's on this forum predominantly code in?Thanks, Peter Iuvara, MCP I came from no real programming background, started i...

We have another group that develops client/server apps using Powerbuilder, but since 80% of their work is in writting reports using Powerbuilder, I was wondering if they could use a combination of and to put make these reports available on the web through ...

Where is the ADO.NET Sybase driver for .NET 1.1 and .Net 2.0?
Hi All Does anyone know where I can get the Sybase drivers for ADO.NET for both versions, 1.1 and 2.0/3.0? Cheers Chris Burrell Hi Chris, There is no release of ASE ADO.NET Provider 2.0 (I assume you refer to ASE provider, not ASA - if ASA please port to sybase.public.sqlanywhere.general). For the 1.1 Provider: It is available in the ASE SDK for windows or the PC Client CDRom included with ASE product. On the SDK its available as 12.5.1 and 15.0 On ASE PC Client I think 12.5.1 is part of ASE 12.5.X and 15.0 is part of ASE 15.X 2.0 provider should release som...

Does .NET map calls for ADO to ADO.NET?
Hello,We are trying to troubleshoot some DB problems from COM objects that call ADO. I heard that when ADO is loaded inside of a COM object by a .NET app, that .NET intercepts the call and re-maps those calls over to ADO.NET. This seems untrue to me, given the nature of ADO.NET being a totally separate technology.Does anyone know for sure whether this does or does not occur?The problem we are seeing is actually almost identical in symptoms to this:"FIX: Data Queries Sporadically Return Empty Recordsets" Literally, this is what...
