Ditto. As per his VB6 book, suitable for beginners - but be warned - this is
the largest .NET book on the shelves!

I have about 30 VB.NET and .NET books, it is in the top few. They ALL
suffer from chapter after chapter telling you how great .NET is and
speaking as if you were a VB6 developer. It gets frustrating if you are
coming into VB.NET straight away.

You'll go through several books and quite a few hours of tutorials
before you wrap your head around everything...

Good luck!

Only now I saw your replies , I've already ordered "Teach Yourself Microsoft
Visual Basic .NET 2003 in 21 days" by SAMS . Hope it's good . (I know
programming and have prior experience in VB6) .
