VB.net books

hello

Can anyone please recommend a good book on VB.net for VB6 programmers.
I think that would be more appropriate for me, I didnt want a beginners book
on VB.net (as I have 1 ).

Learning Vb.net from the VB6 perspective would be great.

thanks

In my opinon is in your case a good resource for learning the Quick Starts
http://samples.gotdotnet.com/quickstart/

I hope this helps a little bit?

I don't know a book to recommend, but maybe you'll find the information
provided on the pages referenced below useful:

If you want to take a quick look at Visual Basic, I currently would
install the Express beta and play around with it:

<URL:http://lab.msdn.microsoft.com/express/vbasic/>

Alternatively, you can order the trial version of VS.NET:

<URL:http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/productinfo/trial/>

General information about VB can be found here:

<URL:http://msdn.microsoft.com/vbasic/>

For beginners' tasks, VB at the Movies may be helpful:

<URL:http://msdn.microsoft.com/vbasic/atthemovies/>

The Visual Basic .NET Resource Kit contains a test version of VS.NET,
some free components and a lot of training material:

<URL:http://msdn.microsoft.com/vbasic/vbrkit/>

Quickstarts on various topics of the .NET Framework can be found here:

<URL:http://samples.gotdotnet.com/quickstart/>

For VB6 programmers, there are separate documents about the switch to
VB.NET:

VB.NET for VB Veterans
