    I'm planning to develop a College Attendance System project in VB .Net and I use Visual studio 2010.
    I'm confused that what type of data source to Use. The application is about to installed by an installer in the clients PC.
    Any suggestion?

    By data source do you mean Database server?
    If so then SQL 2008 Express is free and comes with Visual Studio 2010

    If you're going to use an MS product to access the data I'd use MS SQL 2008 Express. There will be less compatibility issues to deal with.
