  • Hi parthiv;

    Both technologies use Linq so you do not need to learn Linq to SQL to learn Linq to Entity Framework. I would suggest to learn Linq to Entity Framework seeming that is the technology that Microsoft is moving forward with.

    You should learn how to use Linq, because without knowing Linq you will
    not know how to use Linq effectively without Linq-2-SQL or ADO.NET
    Entity Framework.
     
    Linq is more than its usage with Linq-2-SQL and its usage with EF.
     
     
    You finish the book, then turn your attentions to LinqPad.
