    Default VB (or VB.net) reading recommendations?

    Hello everyone,

    Iíve got a chance to possibly try my hand at some VB programming. Iím pretty familiar with VBA, so Iím not sure if I need the most basic of books. Anyone have any recommendations on a good beginner / intermediate book for someone whoís looking to pick up on some VB / VB.net? Also, any good forums out there I can use as a reference as well? Any insight you have is appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    These are a couple forums I have frequented:

    Always make a back up copy before trying new code, you never know what you might lose!

    Ugh, I was hoping that you wouldn't say that. It seems ".net" is quite the buzzword at work, so it seems I should migrate towards that.

    XVBT has a handful of experts who never cease to amaze me with their VB .Net skills.

    Disclaimer: I am a moderator at that forum but that has no influence on my recommendation.

    Thanks Colin! I'll be sure to check it out.

    A good desk reference would be nice as well....anyone have any recommendations? Looks like VB.net is the way for me to go.
