    I am searching for a good book on working with collections in VB.Net. Specifically, wth emphasis on the System.Collection.Generic class. I tried to read Professional .Net 2.0 Generics(ISBN-10: 0764559885), but it was difficult because it is written for C#. I also tried to read Pro VB 2005 and the .Net 2.0 Platform(ISBN-10: 1590595785), which covers the topic briefly, but not to the depth that I am looking for.

    Professional .Net 2.0 Generics by Tod Golding contains code in C# and VB.net, all code listings are written twice.

    You are right. I was writting my post off the cuff. I just remember it was a hard read for me, so naturally I assumed it was in C# when I wrote the post. I wish there were more books out there about generics, they seem to be the direction MS is headed, especially with linq. Basically, all I want to know about generics is which one I need for a particular purpose, what methods it has, and examples on how to get it done. Professional .Net 2.0 Generics did to this some degree, but to the level(for the level) that I was looking for. This book took for granite that you know which generic you need(brief summary) and heres how you do it. I need a little more help in understanding the differences between the generics and what each could be used for.
