I am just beginning VB.Net also, but what I have found is the the books that say "Beginning" ... VB.Net. Usually mean beginning programming of any kind, and we will teach you VB.Net along the way.

Here are the books that I am currently reading, and happy with (name are close to being right, but you should be able to find them).
1) (Wrox) Professional VB.NET
2) (Wrox/APress) Expert One-On-One Visual Basic .NET Business Objects
3) (Wrox) ADO.Net with VB.NET

I have a couple others on my wish list at Borders.com, but I haven't gotten them yet, so I don't know that they are good.

Don't throw out your "Beginning..." .Net books yet. Though you may know your programming theory and want to now learn the syntax of .Net, you might still have some use for those beginning books. I have been writing VB for 6 years and ASP for 4, and started with a beginning .net book. Granted I skimming past the sections on "how to do loops" but I actually got a lot out of the book. SO many things have been introduced into VB.Net that are new since VB 6 and back that it's quite helpful to get a bit of a new start with something that's presumed to be already familiar.
