  1. Microsoft Press Free E-Books 3 E-Books to help you get started with LINQ, ASP.NET AJAX and Silverlight. You must register to access them (doesn’t harm you. No, really, it doesn’t).
  2. Visual Studio 2008 and .NET Framework 3.5 Training Kit The Visual Studio 2008 and .NET Framework 3.5 Training Kit includes presentations, hands-on labs, and demos.
