"Must have" reference books for a VB programmer

New to VB and wonder if there are "Must Have" reference materials one needs at the desk? Quick sheets, overlays, great books or places to get programming supplies?
Any opinions?
Thanks!

    For me ... MSDN ... the latest version ...with Office 2000 Developer Tools, Articles, Periodicals, VB6 and .NET. or at least www.msdn.com from Microsoft.

    And for me, an advanced but excellent book is Bruce McKinney's Hardcore Visual Basic 5. Okay, it's about VB5, but it's worth its weigth in gold for every VB6 programmer.

    Visual Basic 6 Black Book: by Steven Holzner
    Was invaluable to me, Microsofts own knowledge base and MSDN documentation omitted some important code related to automating email.
