    Where to start learning actionscript?

    Can anyone point me in the direction of a good book or web resource for learning actionscript (3.0 I guess as it's the latest version).

    I'm a complete beginnner and know nothing about actionscript. Although I've done a little ColdFusion and know a little about variables, functions, loops etc. (My knowledge of these is hazy though.)

    kirupa.com tutorials have always been great for me, they have a decent forum as well. Also, here is good if you are stuck with anything.

    I am registered on Kirupa myself but never really liked the place.
    i found some of the members really liked to over complicate something that could be a whole lot simpler. If i had stuck with Kirupa when i first started out i doubt i would be where i am at today.

    Forums i browse daily
    FlashMove
    ActionScript.org
    FlashKit
    Sephiroth's
    SitePoint
    Actionscript.org seems really good for help and advice on AS3. It's where i am picking up help and tips from.

    haha yea, some of them do seem to do, and the forums can be a bit slow and cliquey. I find the tutorials a great help though
