Default Good Beggining Books

I have been learning classic .asp with the forum package that is actually used here. I am trying to further my knowledge and ability with .asp and would like to know what books would give me sample code to work through and start to teach me the in's and out's of .asp

I am still a begginer basically I can manipulate code that already exist but i cannot write it myself and that is where I want to get.

Any recomendations on books would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks :)
Jeff

You have the Wrox Beginning ASP 3.0: http://www.amazon.com/Beginning-Acti.../dp/1861003382 which was published in January of 2000

I must ask though, is there any specific reason why you want to use classic ASP?

Mainly I want to learn it better cause a personal site I have is using classic .asp its the snitz forum. From there I want to learn asp.net so I can be prepared for the future as well.

Just mainly want to get a go grasp of both as there are alot of sites programmed in classic asp still so I feel its good to know them both. :)

Found the book you are reffereing to any other good ones as well?

While I don't disagree with you that there are still sites using ASP, they are definately going the way of the Dinosaur! ;] In any event, that only other book I used for ASP was a Sams publication that was more focused on E-Commerce but the name of it alludes me.

hth.

Thanks I don't disagree either about they are on the way out. But still good knoweledge to at least have I feel.

I am planning on learning asp.net as well so I can have the past and future covered :)

I started learning .asp and I have enjoyed it and for what I have coded in on a few of my sites so I just want to learn that better.

But sites I do from here on out I want to know asp.net as well.

Thanks again for the suggestions.
