2.0 out of 5 stars Riddled with errors, but contains some useful material..., 8 July 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Inside 3D Studio Max 2: Advanced Modeling and Materials v.2: Advanced Modeling and Materials Vol 2 (Paperback)
If you're looking for a high quality book, with excellent examples and superb accompanying CD, you've unfortunately found the wrong book! This is riddled with errors; filenames incorrectly referred to, paths within sample files referring to New Riders own servers, files missing, incorrect steps in the tutorials, etc.
The quality of the finished product in each tutorial is also poor, a sad reflection on the quality of the overall book. IF this book _has_ been quality tested, (which I HIGHLY doubt!), I can only say that the authors have some serious problems and are suffering from delusions of adequacy.
For the price you pay, certainly not worth it, unless you REALLY need to learn your materials and can't find ANY other source.
