I'm in the market for a good "intermediate" ASP.NET using VB book and was hoping to get some suggestions from people who post here. I've read a Teach Yourself ASP.NET Using VB by Scott Mitchell which was a VERY good introduction but didn't really get into
coding VB or Data Access. It basically showed you how to use Visual Studio's built in controls, which is important, however I want to go beyond the "drag and drop" and get into the "nuts and bolts". I'm not looking for anything too advanced because I still
think I need a firmer grasp on some of the basics.
Some of the book I'm considering are:
- Murach ASP.NET 2.0 using VB 2005
- Pro ASP.NET 2.0 Website Programming - by Damon Armstrong
Does anyone have any other suggestions for books I should be looking at or opinions about the books I've selected?

Check out Scott Mitchell's Data Access tutorials here on this site...at the top on the Learn tab. This might save you some book money.
I also like Professional ASP.NET 3.5 by Evjen, Hanselman and Rader from Wrox Press.
I'm also starting a series on my blog that starts with the drag and drop demos...tells you why they are cool but not really realistic, and then we'll get into the nitty gritty of databinding...fun stuff!
There are lots of books out there, check this one
