Waste of time and money. Jan. 14 2011
By Chris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book can be described as "the ramblings of someone who knows how to use 3dsMax but not how to teach it". It's boring and painful to try and follow along with. Too much talk, not enough action and especially not enough pics/diagrams! For people just beginning with Max, you'll be wasting a lot time reading and then re-reading and then re-re-reading the text trying to work out where to find the command, menu, object etc, that the book's trying to explain or the affects different tasks have on your models whereas simple labelled diagrams and screenshots would've done the job a lot more efficiently.

The book gives some good direction on where to start learning 3dsMax but the Autodesk help is far better at actually explaining things, the Autodesk tutorials are also excellent!

When you finally get to the important chapter on poly modelling, the book really loses the plot, 50 pages describing the 5 million commands all of which are explained in the 3dsMax help file, the book just takes longer to get through. Then the opening sentence of the following chapter says "the previous chapter 'covered' everything you need to know about poly modelling". It probably did, but it taught nothing!

It's too "hands off", the few tutorials which are covered and included on the dvd have too much of the work already done, so you'll complete the tutorial and wonder what the point was? (The DVD includes a heap of tutorial files but hardly any are actually covered in the book.)

It's a big book and i can appreciate the work that's gone into it but it could be condensed right down by cutting out the rambling and getting to the point.

I personally don't see the need for this book as the tutorials and help provided by Autodesk get you up and running WAY quicker with plenty of screenshots to back up what's being said. Unfortunately i had already bought the book and wasted a lot of time going through it before i worked this out.

basically a rip off Aug. 2 2011

Uh.. every page refers to a non-existant DVD. Don't make a Kindle book if a DVD is central to it. I would like a refund.

You have to be familiar with max.
It is informative although I have 3ds Max 2013 but it still works
5 stars as usual for Amazon which I consider them THE BEST BOOK SELLERS AND THE MOST TRUSTED BOOK SELLERS.
Thank you
