At http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/ms788236, Microsoft are providing a free download of the free book, Upgrading Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 to Microsoft Visual Basic .NET.

"Upgrading Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 to Microsoft Visual Basic .NET is the complete technical guide to upgrading Visual Basic 6 applications to Visual Basic .NET, covering all upgrade topics from APIs to ZOrders. It shows how to fix upgrade issues with forms, language, data access, and COM+ Services, and how to upgrade applications with XML Web services, ADO.NET, and .NET remoting. It also provides big-picture architectural advice, a reference of function and object model changes, hundreds of before-and-after code samples, and a CD packed with useful examples."

Whilst this book is now several years old, there is still a vast amount of VB6 code in use which will eventually needed to be re-written to either VB.NET or C#.

One thing to note, this book is pretty old, the PDF's were created in 2005. So don't expect the VB.Net stuff to be the latest and greatest. That said, there's still allot of good content here...
