If your in the following areas (or can be in those areas), be sure to try to attend the Visual Studio 2005 Dev Con event...
St. Louis, MO (5/26), Chicago, IL (6/1), Minneapolis, MN (6/1), Kansas City, KS (6/2), Omaha, NE (6/14), Detroit, MI (6/14) and Dallas, TX (6/16)
The event costs $99 to attend and you'll receive three books for attending ($90 value). For more information, visit the official announcement.
[update] I guess I could add that you'll get some great training in addition to the books (I figured that was a given) and, hey, I'll be at the Dallas event... so if you attend that one, be sure to stop by and say “hey, you said to say hey” at the users group table.
