Just wanted to know of any good books on ASP.NET. I've used ASP.NET before but only briefly and now want to take it to another level. I've bought
' ASP.NET Unleashed' by Stephen Walther but I havent found it that useful yet as its only a reference. Does anyone know of any good books that have helped them through development . Although I'm a beginner, I dont want a book that is too basic in order
to throw it away after a few months. Apart from books what would be the best way to get into ASP.NET? Also does anyone know of any good C# books for beginners?

I've gotten used to the Wrox layout of their books. I generally prefer them for beginner and mid-level topics. No one has really wow'd me from an advanced topics perspective yet. Maybe Apress but I need more books than I have to judge.

Go through these books if you are a beginner.
WROX- ASP.NET WITH VB.NET 1.0
ASP.NET WITH C# 1.0
When you feel your self litle comfortable in the above two book then go for UNLEASHED asp.net 2.0(This is a very good book with an indepth knowlege of every topic) I donot remember the publisher. You just tell the name Unleashed and they will understand.there
is only one book in the market with that name.

I've got shelves full of ASP.NET books (Amzon loves me, and as long as I occasionally order some sappy romance who-dunnit for her, my wife still does too...). Most used is still
ASP.NET Unleashed by Walther. It's an okay learning book but it's a phenomenal reference. My personal preference when learning were (still are):
ASP.NET 2.0 Website Programming: Problem - Design - Solution by Marco Bellinaso
Professional ASP.NET 2.0 Special Edition by Bill Evjen, Scott Hanselman, Devin Rader, and Farhan Muhammad
Professional ASP.NET 2.0 by Bill Evjen, Scott Hanselman, Farhan Muhammad, and Srinivasa Sivakumar
Beginning ASP.NET 2.0 in VB 2005: From Novice to Professional by Matthew MacDonald
ASP.NET 2.0 All-In-One Desk Reference For Dummies by Doug Lowe, Ken Cox, and Jeff Cogswell
Either of the Professional ASP.NET 2.0 will be okay, you don't really need both. I like Wrox's Programmer to Programmer series, and the Dummies book still gets used occasionally as a reference. The Problem - Design - Solution books have
always been great for me to learn from. I've had other books that were good as well, but more specific, AJAX, Master Pages, Security, etc.
