Looking for VB.NET Books

Post icon  Posted 11 August 2009 - 08:51 AM

My firm is, at long last, upgrading our MS Office suite to 2008 and will soon migrating to Windows 7. I've done a lot of coding of custom programs in both VBA and VB6 and will soon need to convert that code to VB.NET.

I've checked out the resource list here and searched the forum, but I haven't found the title of a good book that provides an introduction to VB.NET. I'm looking for something that covers the fundamentals but also delves into the the more advanced stuff. Ideally, I'd also like something that outines differences between VB.NET and previous VB languages.

So, how 'bout it? Anyone have some titles they like/use?

Thanks in advance!

You will not find many books with conversion as they were VB6 to VS2005. The books I have found useful for VB2008/.NET 3.5 are:

Professional Visual Basic from WROX Press
Pro VB 2008 and the .NET 3.5 Platform by Andrew Troelsen from APress
Microsoft Visual Basic .NET Programmer's Cookbook by Matthew MacDonald
