After a few years of Access VBA it's time to learn C#.Net. Can anyone
recommend a book that is good for someone with no experience other than
VBA?

You can learn the language in a weekend.

Programming in dotNet, that's the real challenge. Take a trip to a
good book store, and spend a few hours finding a book that suits your
mode of learning.

Sorry, I don't have a book recommendation for you. I have a different
recommendation. If you've never programmed in a language other than VBA,
then jumping into a language in the C family isn't going to be easy. VBA
allows you to get away with a lot of bad habits that will lead to severe
problems in strongly typed languages like C. Since C# and VB.Net both
produce CLR (Common Language Runtime) modules, you could migrate first to VB.
Net and learn the .Net framework, then migrate to C#. VB.Net would look
familiar to you so once you feel comfortable with that language, you can
transition over to C#. When you get stuck on syntax, you can always fall
back on VB.Net to meet your deadlines. C# programmers make more money than
VB.Net programmers, so you don't want to stop learning at VB.Net

As Tom says the syntax of the language is quite straightforward. It's the
object models that you have to deal with which are the problem.

You can download loads of C# primers off the net have a look at
