Pro ADO.NET with VB.NET 1.1 (From Professional to Expert)
I just finished previewing a portion of Pro ADO.NET with VB.NET 1.1.
I must say that I began my reading with a little bit of scepticism figuring that this was yet another rehash of the MSDN Library. I am happy to report that I was wrong.
If you think that when it comes to ADO.NET you have been there, done that, got the t-shirt, then you really should pick up a copy of this book. The authors of Pro ADO.NET really take the time to teach the real nuts and bolts of using ADO.NET effectively and efficiently using concrete examples. Topics that are covered include ADO.NET architecture, Data Sets, Data Adapters, Data Readers, data relationships, performance optimizations, and much more. If you are looking for something to fill the gap that the MSDN Library or books that are near carbon copies of the MSDN Library have not filled, then look no further. This book is the one. If you ever wanted to take that next step and truly become an ADO.NET guru, I recommend adding this book to your collection.
