There are 1 or 2 errors in the book, and the odd error with some of the cd-files (i.e incorrect naming) however this book has a lot to offer. The coverage of the Material Editor is top. Some of the moderling tutorials are a bit dull. The CD also is quite limited, it has the tutorial files and thats about it. The Clip art is totaly useless. If you have a good overview of the MAX interface but need help with making your models then get this..
