Question Learning Entity Framework 6, visual basic .net 2013

I am learning .NET do develop a business (data-centric) application in VB .NET and VS2013 Express.
It will have 3-Tier architecture. For the Data layer (working against a SQLServer Database, or MySQL, or generally speaking, against any relational DB), I am thinking of using Entity Framework (latest version, 6.0, I believe), to handle the decouplement between relational-design and class-based-design.

I would like to hear opinions about my choice and sources for learning (tutorials, books,...), but in VB.

Another opinion I would like to hear about is Stored-Procedures yes or not. I would like to avoid them, but maybe I am too drastic.

I don't know if MVC is related to what I am exposing here, but I prefer to avoid that component or approach.

thanks
