QuestionCurrent Best Practices Pin

I've been a developer for many years. Lately doing a lot of VB6 to VB.Net conversion work. Mostly database driven desktop WinForm apps using SQL. I want to update my design work to current best practices (I'm old school) but there is so much to choose from I'm really confused. I've broken my questions down into fundamental parts for clarity.

1. The use of N-Tier architecture appears best. In my case 3-tier (GUI>DB IF>DB). Do you agree? Other advice?

2. I currently use datasets with filtered databinding. I see Linq, SQL queries and Entity Framework as newer options. Which might be better? Combination? Other advice?

3. Can you point me to good examples of good architecture and coding methods? I'm currently studying Northwind.Net. Other good examples?

I know this is a broad question and answers may be personal choice but any guidance is greatly appreciated.
