Go to amazon.com and search on your topic. Book sales rankings are included. If a book sells well, that's a good indication that it is a good one.

These are some good books-

  • C# 2.0 (Liberty)
  • Pro ASP.NET 2.0 (Wrox - evjen, hanselman, etc),
  • .NET Framework 2.0 MCTS 70-536 (MS Press)
  • ASP.NET 3.5 Unleashed (Walther)

In my experience the Unleashed and Jessie Liberty's series' are more useful than the WROX and MSPress because they better explain the practical application of the concept being discussed.

Wrox books tend to be more encyclopedic and canonical, lacking the "Now what do I do with it" knowledge.

MS Press was ok, but had Mucho typos and the practice exams supplied with the book had at least 6 bad questions and would not provide me with a corrected practice test.

Hope this will help you.
