    I learnt C# from no programming experience with:

    C# Programming: From Problem Analysis to Program Design, Second Edition by Barbara Doyle

    Good case studies. Good introduction to the language and its features.

    It also introduces GUI programming and ADO.Net (the database interaction stuff). But, really focus on the language stuff in the earlier chapters before you move onto the GUI stuff.

    If you've programmed in C++/Java before you can just open up the help in Microsoft Visual C# and look at the mini-tutorial on the basic elements of it. Much of the programming books teach a bit of the syntax and the rest are universal programming stratigies with the languages own rules.
