  • Thanks guys.

    I also have Dino Esposito's Core Reference book but it's for ASP.NET 2.0. Are changes in 3.5 extensive enough to justify getting the 3.5 edition of the book? Or can I use the 2.0 and be aware of the changes?

    Appreciate your feedback.

  • Hi,

    Tough call, includes LINQ to SQL (maybe supersceded by SP1 and Entity Framework), intro to partial rendering (not keen on this approach).  Intro to Ajax web services and Silverlight.

    My guess is better off getting a LINQ book, an Ajax and a Silverlight book, or which ever technologies you will use.

    I really like 'Advanced ASP.NET AJAX Server Controls For .Net Framework 3.5' Calderon and Rumerman, not sure which book I would recommend for LINQ, I found Pro LINQ Language integrated Query in C# c2008 Rattz pretty good, but prior to Entity Framework release, the microsoft book Programming LINQ also looks pretty good but not read it.
    Not spent much time with Silverlight so cannot recommend books.

    Hope this helps
