I've never found a good book on active directory. I actually learned most of what I know by using google and also the SDK help for .NET which has a fair amount of information.
This site is also is incredibly useful: http://www.computerperformance.co.uk/Logon/LDAP_attributes_active_directory.htm
Also have a look at these sites as well, particularly forums:
Finally, read up on the DirectorySearcher and DirectoryEntry classes and google for RootDSE which, ideally, you should use to connect to an AD server.
I hope this helps.

This book is superb: The .NET Developer's Guide to Directory Services Programming (Microsoft .NET Development Series)
The code is in C# but I've worked in both and the translation is not too tricky. The book will give you the concepts and Visual Studio/the Help can give you the syntax.
