Default Which book after ASP.Net 2 Beginning

Hi, I read a beginning ASP.Net 2.0 book with C#. I would like to go to the next step of Professional ASP.Net 2.0 and I found that two books were rated high in Amazon.com and would like to know anyone's opinion of which book is better to use for implementing kind of real website project on ASP.Net 2.0. The two books are the following:

1- ASP.NET 2.0 Website Programming: Problem - Design - Solution By Marco Bellinaso

2- Pro ASP.NET 2.0 E-Commerce in C# 2005 By Paul Sarknas

I appreciate your assistance

While I am not familiar with either of these books, I can only make the assumption that the "E-Commerce" book would be applicable to you if you are going to be doing e-commerce. Otherwise, you might want to go with #1 to get a general information about more advanced ASP.NET programming.

You may find that either of these are too big of a jump from the Beginning book you read. I'd suggest as a next step you read Professional ASP.NET 2.0 by Bill Evjen, Scott Hanselman, and Devin Rader (either the original softcover book or the later larger hardcover). From there, you'd be ready to move on to the advanced concepts in Marco Bellinaso's ASP.NET 2.0 Website Programming Problem Design Solution.

Thanks for your suggestion. I have a good background of Object Oriented Programming and I did some web programming in Java. So do you think I should still go through Professional ASP.Net before going for the two books I mentioned previously? I appreciate your suggestions

I'm not as familiar with the e-commerce book you mention. It's not published by APress (not Wrox) so I'm not as sure what their style is. With the ASP.NET 2.0 Website Programming Problem Design Solution book, the focus is really on applying what you already know about ASP.NET using the MVP pattern to separate UI, BL, and DAL. If you go to the discussion forum for that book here:
http://p2p.wrox.com/forum.asp?FORUM_ID=261

I think you'll get a better feel for the level of user if you read some of the discussion there.
I think your OOP and Java background will help a lot but I think there may some ASP.NET constructs you're just expected to know with the problem design solution book and what you're really learning there is less about invididual pieces of code and more about putting it all together.

you might also head over to wrox.books24x7.com and sign up for a 7 day free trial and you can read as much of all of our books including ASP.NET 2.0 Website Programming Problem Design Solution and Professional ASP.NET 2.0 as you want. I think they obscrure they code during the trial but you'll get a feel for what's covered.
