ASP.NET 3.5 Enterprise Application Development with Visual Studio® 2008
If you are faced with the many challenges that come with delivering business applications, experienced author and ASP.NET expert Vince Varallo is here to help. He arms you with the necessary tools for developing ASP.NET applications with Visual Studio 2008 that are elegant, easy to maintain, and can be extended to create solutions for particular problems.
Putting Wrox's popular Problem Design Solution format into practice, each chapter features an individual scenario and provides a description of the problem to be addressed, the design considerations for choosing a solution, and the solution that ultimately gets to the bottom of the problem. As Varallo walks you through the solutions, each of the business requirements are examined, while the latest enhancements in ASP.NET 3.5 and Visual Studio 2008 are used so that you can implement them in a reusable framework. Packed with code samples, this hands-on guide will provide you with a foundation that you can extend to meet the specific business needs of your organization.

I highly recommend this book if you're serious about using ASP.
