I was in a local bookstore and stumbled over a series which was usually quite useful to me as a design/media pro: The Classroom in a Book Series for CS3.

Because I got the CS3 Design Premium and haven't worked with Flash for some time I wanted to pick it up.

Luckily I flipped through it before I bought it.

It is not only shrunken in thickness, it was reduced to some (!) basics, some (!) details and some (!) references.

You may ask the following:

a) Will I be able to use Flash after reading it and worked through the tutorials? - Yes and no. Yes you might be able to use Flash but only in the way the tutorials work.

b) Is it as good as the really big and concise Classrooms of the past (esp. the ones for CS and CS2)? - No, it was shrunken in size and content.

Okay, it is now fully colored and the binding is much better, but anyway: They are not a coffee table item - you have to get the grip of a soon-to-be-productive program!

Esp. because of my brilliant experiences with past issues of the Classrooms I can't recommend the new ones at all. They are too shallow for effective use.

Btw: The old Macromedia Training Books were much better and concise. Adobe stitched this with a VERY hot needle!

I bought this book because I appreciated a lot the series "classroom in a book" but this one is not useful because it doesn't explain anything, it says only "do this, then this, then this, then this" without explain WHY you're doing something and why you're using a tool instead another one.

I bought this book last year and it has been invaluable in learning to use Adobe Flash CS3.

I would reccomend this book to anyone
