    i am under no means a professional at asp.net however i graduated from asp -> VB.Net -> C#.

    Now if i was to do it again i would skip VB.Net (not cause it isn't a great capable language) i just find C# syntax and data typing much easier and more useful. Personally i didn't use any book though read alot of forums especially this site. There are some great resources out there but if you are like me just set up a development box and have at it.

    Amazon has quite a few books that they offer on Asp.Net programming

    If you are just starting out i heard this book is quite good. http://www.amazon.com/Beginning-ASP-NET-2-0-Wrox-Guides/dp/0470042583

    Also head over to Microsoft and get yourself a copy of the SDK's and a copy of Visual Web developer Express and Sql Express 2008 those 3 things will provide you with samples of premade systems, databases and documentation

    MS Express Editions: http://www.microsoft.com/Express/

    SDK's http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb166441(VS.80).aspx

     How did those resources work out for you?

    Sorry I haven't replied in a few days. I am definitely going to get a book and probably take a class or two. I am looking at the 3.5 edition (http://www.amazon.com/Professional-ASP-NET-3-5-VB-Programmer/dp/0470187573/ref=pd_bbs_sr_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1221887857&sr=1-2). I have played with e SDKs a little bit, but I have a copy of VS2008 Pro as well. I'm more of the type to just jump in and start playing with software, but I know I will need a good reference point as well. I am trying to break into web development which is a complete shift from being a network admin., but something I enjoy much more.

     Thank you and I appreciate the response.

     I did the switch a few years ago and wouldn't go back, and tackled it the same way. Except books don't work for me, trial error and forums ;) Good luck!
