    Hiya, my College has chosen to follow VB.NET for A-Level Computer Science. It's annoying because I feel it's not rather useful for my purposes so I'm learning C# instead, but I want to invest some time into making sure that the A-Level content is a laugh, I want an A* at A2, something quite rare at my college (and indeed the subject, though I suspect that is due to the quality of the students rather than the difficulty of the course), they get one every few years. :/

    I've read "Computing Projects in ASP.NET" by D. Christopher and the old AQA Computing book as part of the course, (the former is ridiculously old, lots of the code was already considered deprecated 10 years ago) and want to read something newer to help concrete my understanding of OOP theory, as Wrox' ASP.NET book has revealed that my knowledge is pathetically inadequate.

    Has anyone any experience with the following books, or another to recommend?
    Microsoft Visual Basic 2013 Step by Step
    VB.NET Made Simple: Programs and Project
    Wrox Beginning Visual Basic 2015

    I'll be very thankful for any opinions.
