5.0 out of 5 stars Got me up and running in Flash CS5 5 Dec. 2010
By BK
Format:Paperback
I've been working with Macromedia MX 2004 until recently so this book was to help me with the conversion to Adobe CS5. It's well presented and although I am only half way through, it has helped me pick up plenty of tips already. Don't know if it would be the right choice for an absolute beginner though, as it focusses on the how and not the why - no real preamble. But like I said, for me it is just the ticket. I now have 5 of the CIB series books sitting on my desk (FW, AI, DW, Flash, PS)so I'm obviously fairly happy with them. Also, I'm using a dual-booting iMac and this book is fine for either OS. Hope this is of help.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy Kindle edition 11 Nov. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I made the mistake of buying the Kindle version, which is not delivered with the exercise files. Without these, the book is utterly useless - you can't follow any of the lessons!

The fact that Amazon don't mention this on the Kindle storefront (and include reviews from the printed version of the book, which also don't mention it) is a serious issue and one that they should address.

3.0 out of 5 stars Clunky! Not as good as the DW CS5 book 20 Sept. 2011
By Mavis
Format:Kindle Edition
The Classroom in a book range is a great idea and is good to buy. I used the Dreamweaver CS3 Book and was delighted to find that the CS5 is MUCH easier to read. It takes into account anomalies you may face and is pretty linear. This Flash book on the other hand isn't like this. One minute it's taking you through an exercise the next it's talking about the toolbox so you lose your place. My first movie came out completely wrong and it was my own tinkering that got it right. I would like to see this book written in the same tone as Dreamweaver CS5 and hope the rest of the range are not like this clunky mass.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent tutorial. 16 July 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have been waiting for a book like this for years. It teaches Flash CS5 in the form of a series of lessons. Readers follow along using lesson files on the CD. Clearly, the best way to learn how to use software is to actually get hands-on experience. This books guides you through the process, building knowledge and confidence as you go.

The writing is clear and highly readable and well illustrated. The accompanying CD also contains further video lessons which are very thorough and assume no prior knowledge. Every step is explained clearly, without being patronising.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adobe Flash book 28 Aug. 2011
Format:Paperback
I have been using the Adobe Classroom books as a training source since Adobe Photoshop 2.5 and find them a valuable source for getting to grips with Adobes applications. The Flash book is easy to follow and you are told how long each lesson will last at the beginning of the chapter. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars The start they should give you with the program 15 Aug. 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having seen what Flash could do I wanted to develop applications myself, but got a bit overawed by the amount of information out there. This is a good start to learning Flash Professional, with concise lessons and basic examples.
Just wish Adobe would include this level of tutorial with the product, and not as an optional update.

5.0 out of 5 stars Improve your flash skills 5 April 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Love these books, it's a great buy for beginners into CS products, would like to see an additional series for professionals with in-depth tutorials etc. Book is value for money and it does what it suppose to. Mine came with a CD Rom as specified in the product area and the chapters are easy to follow. Recommend it to anyone.
