    Unanswered: Need a good book...

    I've been a SQL Server dba for 5 or 6 years now. With the upcoming release (eventually, I'm sure) of Yukon/SQL2005, I've read that it's important for DBA's to pick up one of the .NET languages - I've figured, I'll try to learn VB.NET - I've had a little exposure to it, and can usually figure out what's going on in VB code I've read - however, I seriously doubt I could write anything in it from scratch - I want to learn it in a bad way - can you all recommend any self-paced books that will walk me thru it? I've never had any formal training with it, don't know a class from a DLL....Thanks in advance for your help!!

    The physical order of data in a database has no meaning.
