.Net application develoment

Hi!
I would like to upgrade my skills in .Net platform to develop business application. Taking out time from office for attending classes is slightly difficult at the moment.
How can I learn the same on my own - I am knowledge of application development using asp, MS Access - though not in large scale  - but small business uses.
a) What is the necessary softwares do I need to install to learn?
b) If there is any online guidebook/reference site (for beginners) available, would appreciate if you can share this with me, as well as suggest a book to start with.

Allow me to join in your group after few months down the line.

Start by installing visual studio express edition, and SQL server 2008 Express edition, and start reading at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/netframework/aa663309 .

If you want to make web apps, go to www.asp.net

visual studio 2008 supports .NET 3.5.  That is fine for starting up.  Though most recent version is .NET 4.0. But to start learning go with your existing tools.  Apart from w3schools, have a look at msdn site http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/w0x726c2(v=vs.90).aspx

.NET is entirely different from ASP.  So it would be a learning curve for you.  Have patience while learning object oriented concepts and language syntax.

You'll have plenty of fundamentals to learn first, so what you have will be more than sufficient.
