This is a little old document. But very useful for people who would like to learn more about “Enterprise Solution Patterns using Microsoft.NET” , by Microsoft Patterns & Practices

This document is very good for referencing for common solution patterns and provides little more focus on ASP.NET based Solution Pattterns.

Nice reference though!!.
