[Microsoft VB.NET Step by Step by Microsoft Press]
This book has some good things and some bad things. Unfortunately I personally found it to be lacking some of the more critical coding practices I was interested in. But at the same time it does have some good points.
-Good start to the basics of Forms, programming and debugging VB.NET programs
-Some tips about Visual Studio.NET (although sparse)
-Error Handling techniques
-found the ADO.NET section to be lacking, and not a very explicit descriptions of why things are done certain ways.
-To glossed over general for anyone with vb6 or vba experience
-just seem to get rolling in some areas and it stops and shifts gears.
Not for the seasoned or intermediate programmer wanting to start into VB.NET. I would recommend anyone just wanting to see a taste of VB.NET consider this book.
