Default Differences between books

Hey I'm interested in getting started programming Windows apps with C#. I have experience with C++ and Java, so I think I can grasp the language (syntax) fairly quickly. Looking on amazon.com I find two C# books by Wrox: "Beginning Visual C#" and "Beginning C# (Beta 2 Edition)". I know that the latter is the more recent, but are there any huge differences? In other words, if I go out to the bookstore and only find the older one, is it still going to be useful? I'm using the Beta of Visual C# 2005 Express.

If your using the beta of 2005, you should use the 2005 beta book.

Hold up- I don't think there IS a Book for C# 2005 Beta yet. Your looking at the original beta version 2 of the 1.0 framework...

Hey,

I'm sure there will be. If you are looking for a Windows Forms books, most of the books are in the C# syntax anyway. Look around for that.
