Looking for an intermediate/advanced VB .NET book that covers multithreading

Greetings. I received 4 VB .NET books and looking through the indices and
tables of contents, I see that none of them addresses multithreading in VB
..NET. I just bought a bunch of books because they were so cheap.

Does anyone have any suggestions for books that cover multithreading? I
have enough beginners books. I don't need any more. Need a good treatment
of multithreading. I've never used it in VB 6. I want to learn about it
in .NET.

I suppose I'd need something at the intermediate/advanced level.

I quickly looked at MSDN library for info. There's some in there. But
from my work with VS 6, I've learned that MSDN is good for reference, but
not for learning or tutorial purposes.

Thanks

"Programming Microsoft Visual Basic.NET" by Francesco Balena (Microsoft Press).
Covers threading and virtually everything else you'll need to know to get
started.

I second this book. It is quite expensive but well worth it!

OK. Thank for the suggestion. Hopefully, there will be others.

But, are you referring to "Programming Microsoft Visual Basic .NET (Core
Reference)" or "Programming Microsoft® Visual Basic® .NET Version 2003".
Both are by Balena?

It seems the more advanced books always keep their high price.

Take a look at "Programming Applications for Microsoft Windows by
Richter:

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...572319968/qid=
1075416119/sr=1-3/ref=sr_1_3/103-6891424-7657406?v=glance&s=books

I bought that a year ago new for under $40. Now they want $196 used!
I've never had a book that went up in value before. Damn, they have an
electronic version of the book on the CD-ROM. One could make a copy of
the CD and sell the book for a huge profit.

Thanks! It's a huge dl at 192 MB. But, I'm sure it'll be worth it.

Are there similar resource kits for C# .NET?

They are really both the same book except that the "version 2003" is updated
for VS.NET 2003 (.NET Framework 1.1). The "Core reference" one refers to
VS.NET 2002 (.NET 1.0).

The 2003 version is only about $10 more (retail price anyways, which I paid
for mine because I needed it that day). You get a lot more in the 2003
version, it is well worth the extra coin. For example, there are about 3
new chapters (I am paraphrasing new material from the Introduction of the
2003 version: "PInvoke, COM Interop, COM+, remoting, code access security,
and Windows Forms applications over HTTP.")

Also the 2003 version comes with TWO e-books (previous version had only 1
e-book). The 2 e-books in the 2003 version are a complete e-book of the
book itself, and a complete e-book of "Programming Microsoft Visual Basic
6." The previous version only had the e-book for "Programming with
Microsoft Visual Basic 6" and did not come with an e-book of itself.

Again, the 2003 version is well worth the extra $10 and is obviously more
up-to-date (if you use .NET 1.1 - VS.NET 2003).

Yes, I think I like the '2003 Version'. But, I think I'll wait a few
months to see if the price drops a bit.

Thanks for the suggestion and review.
