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 have Sams teach yourself asp.net in 21days
Sams teach yourself ado.net in 21 days. Both are good
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.
Thanks for all the responses, :) I musta missed the book review forum thanks for point it out I ment to say that I was not a total Newbie :)
