Programming Microsoft Visual Basic.NET (ISBN: 0 - 7356 - 1375 - 3) is a good
book to start. Cost £43.99 or $59.99 (US) or $86.99 (Can)

But if you want to start the .NET experience then why not start with J#
being a Java programmer already?

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/>

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:

If you have a Java background, maybe you will find C# more suitable. VB.NET
is great for people coming from Visual Basic 6.0, and I love it, but its
verbose syntax can be annoying to Java/C# programmers.

I agree - coming from Java you will feel much more at home in C#. In VB you will likely find
yourself fighting the language.

I would not reccommend J# for new development. J# is not nearly as supported as C# and VB.NET.
While J# is official, you dont see much activity around it and I see it as more of a migration option.
