Dosen't measure up to SAMS standard.
This book tries to please both the beginner and the experienced programmer coming from VB6, however it does a below average task of both.
The task of explaining .NET and how to fully utilize VB .NET is not a task for one book, and this book does not claim to do this, instead it jumps back and forth between subjects and forgets some very important topics that are not even mentioned?
I must say I'm sorry I bought this books, and I have bought SAMS books before that are of much higher quality! This is nothing that will discourage me from buying SAMS other titles, but I would look elsewhere for a VB.NET introduction.

This book really has it all in a nutshell...excellent dataset and ADO .NET content, session vars etc etc you name it, it generally covers it. It doesnt go into everything as deep as you would like, so its not gong to be the only book you buy, but for starting off it's an excellent launching point into VB .NET that I would thoroughly recommend.
One note..this book doesnt really cover VB .NET syntax, ie for loops, OO concepts and the like. It does however conatin alot of information about creating web based VB .NET apps, just as the title implies.
