Good book on VB.NET with example?

SF
Hi,

I have done some coding with Access and I want to try using VB.NET. I am
looking for a good book with examples specially on data access (database).
Could someone in this group recommend?

Does 'Hitchhikers Guide to Visual Studio and SQL Server Best Practice
Architectures and Examples (7th Edition)' use VB.NET platform?

I have found that using MS press books, which there are some for training
that hold both C# and VB.Net examples for certification are good books. The
books are right to the point and with the examples. You should forget that
those books are for certification. Those are training books that give you a
good foundation and basics that you need to know.

There is a set of books for Web based development and then there is a set of
books for Windows desktop development.

Again, forget about those books being used for certification. Those books
will give you the basics, which you can come back to again and again.

Those that seek to become .Net developers carry a lot of baggage that they
need to abandon, if they have been doing non .Net development.
