I'm looking for 1 or 2 good beginner-intermediate reference books on & Object oriented programming.

I'm hoping the book can cover the basics of OOP using  Preferably it would be an up-to-date guide that reflects 2003.

I found one book on amazon; "An Introduction to Object-Oriented Programming with Visual Basic .NET" and was wondering if anyone has an opinion on this book or another referal.

    If you are talking about the book of Dan Clark at APress, it is really a very good book.

    Another excellent one is "OOP with Microsoft® Visual Basic® .NET and Microsoft Visual C#™ .NET Step by Step" at MSPress from Robin A. Reynolds-Haertle (
