Default Beginning Visual C# or Beginning Visual C# 2005?

Or both?

I am a programmer with one year experience but no knowledge of C# or object oriented programming because when i obtained my diploma it did not exist (2001-2002). I would like to learn C# but these two books seem fairly similar, except the 2005 sounds like the logical choice... is the book "Beginning Visual C#" Obsolete compared to the 2005 one?

Thanks for any advice. I decided to post this here rather than in the books C# sub-forum because it is fairly inactive.

I'd absolutely go with the newer version, Beginning C# 2005, on the current software version. If for no other reason than you can get the free Visual C# 2005 Express Edition software from Microsoft to learn on. It's close enough to standard Visual C# 2005 that once you are ready to buy a copy of the full software, the transition should be seamless.

Hope this helps.
