He, what happened to ASP.NET 2.0 Instant Results on that list? ;)

Although the book is indeed in VB, it's mostly the concepts that are important, not necessarily the language. Learning both is indeed a good idea.

If you have another month of time, you might as well wait for the 3.5 versions of the books you've listed.

Cheers,

Imar

Oh, Instant Results is there. Number 2. I figure the techniques are good. Since I already have some background in VB.NET it should go fairly well. My goal is to become proficient in ASP.NET and dynamic databases. I think there's a huge amount of jobs out there for that and it is the part of .NET I am most interested in.

Oh, and I think companies out there still use 2.0. I know some about 1.1 so this should be a good step. I can always pick up 3.5 when companies start to move to it.

As Imar suggests, you might want to consider waititng until the 3.5 books come out. While I understand where you are coming from in that most companies have not yet adopted 3.5 it is not that much of stretch to learn 3.5 and turn around and work in 2.0 (and it puts you ahead of the curve =]). But go the route you are most comfortable with.

Then again, for what its worth, ASP.NET 3.5 adds all of maybe 3 notable new features: integrated AJAX support, and 2 new controls (ListView and DataPager). Nothing you'll miss if the focus is on learning database driven web site development, and you decide to go with the 2.0 versions. ;)

Yup, I'm rolling with the 2.0 beginners book now, so I think I'll get up to speed and then after a couple of the 2.0 books, I'll grab a 3.5 one. Thanks!
