    I really like the Wrox series on .Net....  if you have the patience to read those books from cover to cover you will come out ahead of many people that just learned "at work" (they are heavy & dense in their writing style but filled with great information and educational value)

    here is a link for the beginning ASP: http://www.wrox.com/WileyCDA/WroxTitle/productCd-0764543636.html

    and here is a link to their ASP.NET category (I really like Professional ASP.NET 2.0): http://www.wrox.com/WileyCDA/Section/id-105058.html

    Book preferences are up to the user, I also prefer Wrox press.  I have a few book reviews on my site at (http://www.josephguadagno.net/books.aspx)

    I like Wrox and Murach's best myself.  Try this site - I just found it, with lots of links to recommended books. http://computerbookreviews.blogspot.com/ I just ordered "Beginning Ajax (Programmer to Programmer)" and "Professional Ajax (Programmer to Programmer)"

    I never learned ASP; but rather, started straight with ASP.NET. My favorite book is ASP.NET for Dummies. It's even got a free demo in the Microsoft Website.



    Apparently, the Wrox series is pretty famous, too. I got both the Starter Kit and the Beginning level book. The Starter Kit was nothing exceptional, albeit quick, precise, and to the point. I haven't covered much of the Beginning book, though, so I can't really give an opinion about it.
