    Just Got Flash MX, What Next?

    I just received my copy of Flash MX. I took a Flash 4 class over a year ago, but didn't go any further, so I consider myself a beginner to the software.

    What would be the best thing to do first? Take a class, buy a book or do some online tutorials? I have two Flash 4 books. Are they of any use, or should I trash them?

    Thanks!

    Give them to someone who has Flash 4. Actionscripting is quite a bit different in newer versions of Flash (5+) and some functions and features are deprecated.

    Get some new books. There's a slew of MX based books on the market now or coming soon.

    Thumbs up

    actionscript is very similar to javascript, granted there are some differences, but it is almost like all other OOP languages. If your not familar with OOP it would be a good idea to read this:

    Flash 4 to MX alot has changed mainly in actionscripting.
