I think you're in luck.

I believe Entity Framework Basics might be exactly what you 're looking for.

Thank you Steven. I'll take a look at it. Just one more question... Have you ever used an MVC web app without using Entity framework, I mean using the string connection, making the query manually an retrieving all information for the corresponding object?

Not that I recall. I do remember doing that with ASP.NET, but with my MVC projects I've generally used EF pretty exclusively. The latest VS makes setting it up pretty easy.
