You're teaching this course, or taking it?
If you're teaching it, this is interesting timing for a book search ;)
If you're taking it, is there not a designated text?
There are lots of good books on VB.NET that will cover most of what you need, but if you want textbooks, these work very well for us:

Go to the McGraw Hill Higher Education site (www.mhhe.com), and search on the authors Bradley and Millspaugh. Their texts on VB.NET are well received in the education community and work very well for us.

Programming in Visual Basic .NET and Advanced Programming Using Visual Basic .NET are the pertinent titles.
