    Studio MX 2004 Tutorial Book

    I am looking to buy a tutorial guide for a software (Macromedia Studio MX).

    Looking at Amazon.com, I have several choices.

    Which would you recommend out of the choices at http://search.barnesandnoble.com/boo...6Q&cds2Pid=946

    The Bible series, Sams teach in 24 Hours, Dummies series,...which publisher would you recommend regardless of the software?

    lol!



    My preference of those you listed: Sams 24 hours, because if you're looking for introductory level tuts that ground you well in basics and well written, I find this series good, and fast (not exactly 24 hours tho!). The Bible series is good but more of a hardcore reference that is better once you have the solid understanding behind you--I thought. I notice the description says that Bible has tuts. Probably the most thorough of the bunch and will serve as a long term reference book too. The only Dummies book I ever bought was for Pet Birds, it was good, but I guess that Sam's might have a little more detail. A publisher you didn't mention that I love for Macromedia stuff-- Friends of Ed. I like their Foundation series. Last, Lynda Weinman's H-O-T series (Hands on Training) is solid learn by doing tutorial stuff.
