The problem with this book is that it presents good examples but with little or no explanation of the code you are using. There is a broad overview of the code after every new section but nothing about what the commands and syntax you are using actually do. If you've done a few online tutorials like those presented by Riemer Grootjans at [...] then it's not a huge problem, but if you're coming to 3D xna for the first time, and want to understand what every command you write actually does, then this is not the book for you.
Also the support site from which you download the code examples doesn't work properly, i had to email support to get the sample code sent directly to me as the link they provided simply redirected me back to the login page.
