you'll be stuck buying books that will only be viable for a year or so (yes, the industry changes that fast).
It's not like a book on .NET 2.0 is suddenly non-viable. How old is the head first c# thingy now?

2) I think it would be easier/faster to become a SQL developer than an actual application developer, because SQL will always be SQL and changes at a much less frenetic pace than does application development.
I like my SQL92, yes, but querying a database is not development, and is not often asked as a standalone skill. If someone is designing a database, you'll need to know a few things more than just SQL.

But yes, your post is spot on Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:
