ASP.net OOP book recommendations?

P: n/a
I want to get a book that will meet my particular needs.

I've been working in ASP.net for several years now (VB.net) and have a
strong grasp on the syntax, but never having a formal CS degree or
background, I'm still lacking in proper OOP concepts.

Is there a book out there that focuses on OOP concepts in the context of
ASP.net (and, ideally, VB.net?)

I've been wanting to take some classes too, but they don't seem to target my
needs either as they all seem syntax based rather than OOP/logic based.

I don't know of any specific vb.net books.

However, a good book is:
Head First Object-Oriented Analysis and Design
http://www.nerdbooks.com/item.php?id=0596008678
for a good programmer, but wanted to delve into OO concepts.

I'd also throw in there to no avoid OO books (or Design Pattern books)
because of a language syntax.

I primarily do C# code.
But I have books in java (which I 99.9% never do), vb.net and c#. If you
count the GOF book which is in C++ I think.

The books give concepts, and the language of choice becomes secondary.

...

Check out ebay also. I've picked up some random books just because they
were cheap.

But the HF book above is a great place to start.

See "Design Patterns", its a classic.

Published: October 31, 1994
Dimensions: 416 Pages
ISBN: 0201633612
Published By: Addison-Wesley Professional

Four top-notch authors present the first book containing a catalog of
object-oriented design patterns. Readers will learn how to use design
patterns in the object-oriented development process, how to solve
specific design problems using patterns, and gain a common vocabulary
for object-oriented design

This book teaches specific strategies in OOD. But, to do so it also
explains the foundations and reasons behind OOD methodology.

A Google search with the terms oop vb.net results in several free online
resources to get you started.

Note: You will need to learn OOP before attempting the GOF book "Design
Patterns" - which is challenging even for some people who do know OOP. Why
do I say this? Because GOF patterns are all about runtime relationships
between objects, and until you know objects there is no point.
