asp.net and VB.net books

I was just wondering if anyone in the newsgroup has had the chance to use
either of these two books. I'm mostly interested in programming in VB.net
and was wondering if I also need to learn asp.net? The first book is
"programming the Web with Visual Basic .net "by Lynn Torkelson, Constance
Petersen and Zac Torkelson the second book is "Microsoft ASP.net programming
with Microsoft Visual Basic .net deluxe learning edition "by Microsoft
press. Does anyone in the newsgroup have any other suggestions and of great
books for programming web pages in VB.net.

When using VB.net to create web projects am I actually using Visual Basic or
am I using ASP.net?

I am not familiar with those books. I like the WROX titles: Professional
VB.NET 2nd Edition and Professional ASP.NET 1.0.

ASP.NET is not a language. It is an architecture for delivering rich
content over the web from a web server. If you plan to build web
applications, then yes, you should learn ASP.NET.

Because ASP.NET is not a language, you need to write the code in a language.
VB.NET would be the language (C# is also available) and it would run under
the ASP.NET architecture.

Thanks for the information, I was under the understanding that ASP.net was
it's own language. Can you make any comments about your experience using VB
to create web sites?

Using VB 6.0 to build web applications requires the "Classis ASP"
architecture, which I have used for years. You are asking for comments on my
opinion of using VB 6.0 as the development language? Well, I like VB 6.0
very much, but VB 6.0 had some very serious limitations. It was not truly
object-oriented, it was object-based and this meant that is wasn't as robust
as it could have been.

Now, let's talk about VB.NET....

VB.NET is not simply the next version of VB 6.0. It's been overhauled to
make use of the .NET Framework AND to be fully object-oriented. Now, VB
..NET is a scalable, powerful language to develop in.
