Considering the price and the fact that this is an official publication i was expecting this to cover, at least at the basic level, all elements of 3ds max, i.e. interface, modeling, character animation, particle animation, environments, materials, etc. it doesnt. It covers basic modeling, character bipeds, and odds and ends. IT IS A TOTAL RIP OFF.
Anything and EVERYTHING found in this book can be watched for free on youtube or with a free account on digital tutors.
