Easy to follow but full of errors,
This review is from: ActionScript 3.0: Visual QuickStart Guide (Visual QuickStart Guides) (Paperback)
As a Flash Animator rather than a Flash Developer I've found this quickstart guide to Actionscript 3.0 great to get to grips with the programming concepts and syntax of Actionscript. Despite some negatives it has given me a lot more confidence in moving forward with Flash.
My disappointment with the book is just how poorly it has been proof-read. Every chapter there are typically 2 to 3 errors in the examples code. It's possible to spot most of these as you type them in as you quickly learn Actionscript's syntax but I still feel it hinders the readers progress and on the odd occasion when I couldn't get code to run correctly it had me skipping over parts of the book until I found another part I felt I could confidently get a handle on.
