There is tons of good information on the Web but some of them data back to early 2001 and I am not sure if any of them is the same form .net 2010.

I am looking for two books.

One with simple explanation with some examples in it and the ...
Second one with more involved and higher level subject in OOP.

Question: Do you know of any book on the subject of OOP to recommend?

Thank you.

    The overall concepts of OOP have not changed. You should always come across the concepts of polymorphism, encapsulation, or data hiding, inheritance, decoupling, and probably a few others that I can't immediately recall.

    The quirky thing you'll have in VB is that it supports some non-OO functions (e.g. Mid, InStr, etc.). This is for historical reasons.

    I personally think you'd be fine with whatever you find on the web, and I don't have any books that come to mind that are VB-specific. My OO education began with C++, and I could recommend one of the books by Gaddis. However, the two languages are quite different, so you may not be comfortable learning OO in a foreign language.

    You can certainly hold out for more information as I'm sure someone's come across a decent book for OO in VB. Certainly ask questions about OO here because there are a ton of people who can answer such questions. The concepts of OO are language agnostic. Even if someone writes code in Objective-C or OO-Cobol, I'd be willing to bet they could still guide you with specific conceptual questions.

    Here's an article by Deb Kurata. She also wrote a book on the subject of OOP in VB.NET.
