I found "3D Studio Max 4: From Objects to Animations book", very easy to pick up since I am new to 3D Studio Max 4. With clear, simple tutorials and user friendly pages makes learning easy and fun.
First when I bought the book I had thought, am I going to enjoy thgis or not and will it be hard to understand, but no I was wrong. At first you panic but then you focus on the book step-by-step you progress further and further, it takes time but as soon as you know the fundimentals you soon get to pick the rest up.
Also there's a CD included with files from the tutorials to help you complete the projects. And at a resonable price you can argue, it's simple the best guide for Beginners working steadily to Advance level.
It's really a great book to buy when studying/learning 3D Studio Max 4, a must for everybody interested.

I decided to buy this book because it states that it is for users new to 3ds max as well as advanced users. I am new to 3ds max 4 and was looking forward to getting stuck in. However, the instructions are 'wrong' in many examples - the author, it seems to me, is not using 3ds max '4' because tools that he describes in his instructions are not called the same tools that are existant in my version of 3ds max 4.
I have been trying to get through the book for the last four weeks but it is impossible to complete tasks because of the inaccuracies in the text.

New to 3ds max 23 Jan. 2002
By S. Hartman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is one of the first books I've bought for MAX. I was impressed that it is essentially a book of 5 long tutorials (projects) that lead the reader from start to finish. This is helpful to us users that want to "get our hands dirty" doing something rather than just reading a reference book that shows all the nifty gizmos but not how to really use them.
As a new user to MAX I found that this book is a perfect way to see how the tools are actually used to create a scene. A couple other books I've purchased had either short tutorials that just showed a tool's application or just an explanation of the various MAX 4 functions.
The projects themselves are fairly detailed and although at a glance the book looks simplistic, it is extreme in depth for a novice. The pictures are sometimes hard to see what's going on. The text sometimes can be a little confusing but with persistance I've been able to figure out most of it. Some steps are missing in areas that to a beginner seem crucial but the fact that just about every step is explained in a simple to follow manner makes this still one of the best learning tools I've found.
I do recommend this book (along with a "reference" type book when you need a bit more explanation about a tool or function) as a way to learn step by step through hands-on for the non-experienced user.

EXCELLENT! 3ds max book 26 Aug. 2003
By W. Isenberger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have been perusing all the 3ds max books that come through the local Barns & Nobles for years and have purchased several. I must say the majority of them have been a big disappointment. I picked up "Advanced 3ds max 5 Modeling & Animating" on a whim and what a pleasant surprise. I liked this book so much I ordered B. Kulagin's (the author) other max book "3ds max 4 from Objects to Animations". It is also an excellent book and it covers features that are not covered in his max 5 book (the max 5 book actually builds on the max 4 book). These books are with out comparison the best max books I have ever run across. The project base lessons reveal the hidden power of max and are easy to follow and understand. B. Kulagin is a master instructor of max.
