The chapter on the 3-D game is ok, but it's the database lesson that has proved to be a major frustration. It says at the beginning of the lesson that it takes two hours to complete. It took me more like twelve. I couldn't figure out why it wouldn't work. After double checking the code, I knew I didn't make any mistakes. So I checked the lesson file that came on the disk. It turned out that some of the sprites on the stage on the score were placed on the wrong channels. Fortunately, I had previous experience with Lingo, and was able to fix the problem. This book is not ideal for people new to Director. The graphing lesson and movie in a window lesson has proved to be equally frustrating.
In conclusion, if you are new to Director and want to build a basis for learning it, or even a novice who wants to build on their skills, then don't buy this book. Like the previous reviewer said, It is a waste of time and money.
