Hi Pat,

Balena is about as good as they get; Troelson (Apress) is also good.

Don't know the other book.

For ADO .Net, try David Sceppa, MS Press (Microsoft ADO .net).

I liked the Sybex book "Mastering Visual Basic.NET"

Also some of the O'Rielly books are good once you have a
handle on what you are trying to do.

I think Balena is terrific (and I'm developing terrifc
muscles lifting up his enormous book!).

It's designed specifically for experienced (classic) VB
developers.

I tell all of my VB students that that book is s must have... 1600+ pages...
Only complaint is that the ebook that comes with it is for the VB6 version
of the book.. Still a must have and inexpensive too! My book isn't bad
either ;)
