The best place to start would to probably pick up Imar's book Beginning ASP.NET 3.5. The code samples are provided both in C# and VB
.NET. Imar's books are the "de facto" standard (in my opinion anyway) around here for new ASP.NET developers. Everyone that posts questions about given examples really seem to enjoy it and he is always around to provide assistance on any question you might have about the material in the book.
I think that Imar's book will get you on the right path and, unless you are really worried about all the ins and outs of SQL Server, I would hold off on purchasing a book focused solely on the topic.
