I made the transition from VB6 to VB.NET in Jan 2003.  Bought several books, but "Programming Microsoft Visual Basic .NET" by Francesco Balena was the best.  It's the only one still on my desk; I refer back to it regularly.  He's updated the book for VS 2003.

Programming VB .NET: A Guide for Experienced Programmers, author Gary Cornell.

This is the first programming book where I was compelled to write the author a note about how great a book it is.  And as a technical instructor (VB6. VB.NET), I've read a lot of them.
