Default What book(s) to read after this one

What books can be recommended to read that elaborate on subjects like objects, classes, .. with Visual Basic 2005? Are the Wrox books Beginning and Professional VB 2005 suitable for ASP.NET 2.0 users, or are they (just) for WinForms?

Thanks in advance for your help

Regards

Thomas

If you're looking for a good tutorial for Objects, classes, and the other fundamentals of VB 2005 and you don't have prior OOP experience, I'd probably recommend the Beginning VB 2005 book. I'd recommend the Professional VB 2005 book more if you already had some OOP or VB experience but were trying to move up to VB 2005.

While the discussion in either book will be helpful to learning these basis, both of those books are mostly devoted to WinForms. Near the end of each book, you get a couple of chapters in each devoted to ASP.NET/web development. But, whether the examples are WinForms or Web, the concepts (objects, classes, etc) apply to either.

You might also take a look at Professional ASP.NET 2.0. It's examples are in both VB and C#. While the coverage there isn't intended to teach VB core concepts, there are enough examples that you will probably learn some additional VB along the way.

Jim:
First, thanks for your answer.
My Problem is that I expect from books like "Beginning ASP.NET 2.0" and "Professional ASP.NET 2.0" that they lead me through the complete learning curve for this topic. I think what Wrox is lacking is a book like "Professional VB 2005 for ASP.NET 2.0 Developers" where you elaborate on topics like I mentioned.

What about a book where you build the wroxunited site from scratch and show EVERY step that is involeved with ALL the underlying information? Then it would be easier to understand the "basics" behind all those things.

Just a thought.

Regards

Thomas

That's an interesting idea. It's something for me to discuss with our VB (and C#) editor and see if there's more we should be doing along these lines.
