U can, infact with the introduction of 'My' in VB2005 and other such features, you would be able to find your way arround more intuitively in VB2005 than in VB
U need to be carefull with the selection of the reference book however, 'cause most books on vb2005 at this point are more about moving from vb
.NET to VB
2005 and not about VB
2005 as a product in its own right.
U need to search for a book that tells you more about VB2005 and not confuse you with "what happened earlier" stuff.
