This is a superb book for learning FCP whether you are a beginner or have more experience. I have been using FCP for years but after reading this book realised I've been doing it all wrong. You can do things in a fraction of the time and effort when you know what your doing. The book is split up into easy to follow lessons with plenty of video footage provided for you to experiment on. Some software guides are hard to follow with confusing jargon and unclear instructions. This book is very easy to understand and the tasks easy to follow. If you are like me and like books that tell you what buttons to push and when to push them you should buy this book.

I am a 2nd year Film student and as such have been wanting to get to grips with this software for sometime. Having had several colleagues try to show me how to use it, I found that I simply couldn't get to grips with it from their teachings alone. I purchased this book recently and am now powering my way through it. The projects set out in the book and accompanying dvd are engaging and interesting as well as providing real scope surrounding the workings of FCP7. Each task will take 1 to 2.5 hours to complete and provide a comprehensive "how to" guide for the novice and experienced user alike. Highly recommended!

This is a fantastic item, great for hands on learning. I used it to help me make the transition between premier pro and final cut pro and it has been such a great help. The amount of time I have saved on jobs due to the advice it gives is amazing!!

This book is excellent and contains more or less everything you need to know to pass the Apple level one certification. Unfortunately, Apple is no longer offering their professional certification in FCP7 so the main purpose of this book as an exam preparation is now lost. However, if you are not worried about any of that and want to learn all the main features of FCP7 and how to use them, then this is a good book for that. Start in chapter one, and do all the exercises through to the last chapter. I found no problems or typos or syntax errors in any of the instructions, so it is suitable for self study.

I've been using FCP7 and the simplified Final Cut Elements professionally for a year in a very basic way and its showing me the gaps in my knowledge.
I think the layout and tutorials are pretty easy to understand if you already have some working knowledge of the program but if you're a complete beginner I think this book might throw a few problems your way.

I found the early lessons a bit repetitive and sometimes the examples and/or screen shots aren't where you are directed to look.

The biggest frustration I had was a CD that wouldn't copy to my hard drive. It kept throwing up error messages and couldn't complete the process. I followed their instructions on cleaning the disc but it still would not work. The book provides an email address to write to for a replacement disc in the event of a non-working CD and I wrote to it over a month ago and I'm still waiting for a new disc or even a reply. If it happens to you and you don't bump in to an old mate who has the same book and lends you his CD I'd send it back to Amazon as faulty rather than email the publishers.

Otherwise, if you need to know FCP7 you will need this book even though it has its issues.

The description on this site and Amazon is copied from the book version and at no point is clear about the download version of the DVD file. I had to wait two days to get a clear reply that there was a file available to download as I wanted a Kindle version rather than the book so I could buy it and get on.
When I did I found the file was nearly 8gb and has to be downloaded as one zipped file!!!!!
My connection kept dropping out and the file did not seem to support download management, so I had to start at the beginning again. Also the file could be in parts giving people a chance to get parts of it at least.
As I needed to just get on I had to pay another 30 pounds for the book version just to get the DVD files. I am out of pocket and the information supplied is not efficient enough. It needs to be clearer that buying the ebook means downloading an 8gb file, and the file needs download management in case of a break in the connection, and to be in parts.
This has been a tough confusing road and need not have been.

If you want a good range of worked examples without making using of other FC stuff such as Motion then it is fine. However, should you want a quick look up to get the idea then it is not really that helpful. I know one learns best by example but being an impatient, butterfly mind, type I see what i can do first and then this leads me to wondering 'how can I do this'. Let's face it that is a lot to ask of a text! On the list it is under Good rather than Wonderful. Buy it anyway, worth having.
