There is not really that much to learn that is specifically ASP.
For a good reference of the different objects - response, request, filesytem, servervariables etc. have a look at O'reillys ASP in a Nutshell. Its the only ASP book I ever bought, its concise and very useful.
If you use vbScript to write ASP (as most do) , all the documentation is online VBScript Language Reference [msdn.microsoft.com] , you can also download the help files [microsoft.com] - highly reccomended ( Thanks smokin:) ).
Other than that, you are probably scripting specific components e.g Jmail, CDONTS, ADO, ASPUpload etc. - The best way to learn the methods and properties is to use the vendors documentation and examples for each.
hi Googly, IMO I wouldn't bother with a book, everything you need to know about ASP can be easily found online. The following site is a good resource:

Smokin, Some of us actually get away from the computer - sometimes ;)
Couple more fine asp links:
aspdaddy...you're just in denial, you know you are a geek just like the rest of us ;)
|aspdaddy...you're just in denial |
i've heard aspdaddy's more of a supergeek than just plain old geek!
I second the above: w3schools has been invaluable to me through the years.
One book that I have found very handy, especially now when I have to look up something really fast i.e.(faster than Google ;) I have ASP 3.0 by Wrox book. It is a really concise guide to ASP.
P.S. The help file that aspdaddy recommended is great also!
like macrost said beginning Active server page 3.0 is great but as for the links I also recommend aspin.com
I also recommend O'Reilly's VBScript in a Nutshell and ASP in a Nutshell as good reference books.
ok folks, thanks very much for your thoughts, much appreciated. So.......I'm gonna do.........all of them!
and so here the journey begins.
