Default Books?

I currently own 2 books which are as follows:
MCAD/MCSD: Developing and implementing web applications with Visual Basic.NET amd Visual Studio .NET Exam 70-305
MCAD/MCSD: Developing XML Webservices and server components with visual basic .NET and the .NET framework. 70-310

Now I know these books cover pretty much everything I need to learn (for my job, not the exams) apart from two things; the first being I need to use C# and the second they are based on .NET 1.1.
based on that information has anything changed dramatically bewteen .NET versions 2.0+ and 1.1 in the way all that stuff works? If so could you recommend me some books which cover the same topics thoroughly? if it hasn't changed is it worth getting the same books again expect the C# versions?

Basically a comprehensive book on XML web services, SOAP etc for 2.0+ would be great seeing as all other wrox books I have are great I am hoping someone knows of the wrox equivilant if there is one?

thanks in advance.

Yes, there were MANY drastic changes from 1.1 to 2.0. You should definitely update those books.

Not sure if there is a Wrox book that focuses on web services though... let me check and find out.
