Desperately seeking .NET?

Not sure where to post this, so I am posting here....

I have just started learning Java a while back, and plan on staying with it, but my employer has asked me to learn a little .NET. Well, I don't know anything about .NET, where to go to learn any of it, and what is its general advantages and disadvantages (other than being a Microsoft product). The general tasks will be desktop applications with a little web applications thrown in with a splash of Database thrown in for good measure. I have noticed that .NET seems to be tied to either ASP, VB, and/or C#/C++.

Basically they have applications already made, I will be helping maintain them and possibly update them from time to time. Someone help, I am more lost than Dorothy ever was!

Seems the exam is retired, but using some of the information I was able to see where and how I could start. Thanks!

You might do well to look at a book like this one. The same publishers have one about C#, but there is a more recent edition than that described in our reviews pages.

Thank you! I really appreciate that. That is almost exactly what I was looking for, something to get my feet wet and make the boss happy, but nothing to difficult for me to spend alot of time on, I'm hoping!
