I have a  class library project in VS 2012 with a class which contains a few methods, and read a couple of tables, read only. For data access ADO.net would be fine. If I like to use entity framework, is it also a simple/good choice just like ADO.net?

I have ever worked projects VS2008 form based, code behind, ADO.net before. I have all concepts of EF 4.0, and have seen or lightly used those projects. But I have not ever start a project using it yet. Please advise.

Entity Framework sits on top of ADO.Net. In other words Entity Framework uses the ADO.Net libraries to access the database. Entity Framework helps in putting together a project much more quickly and more succinct code then using ADO.Net.
