5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Covers Everything Feb. 12 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The index of this book quickly became my best friend. Calling it a "Classroom in a Book" is quite effective, as it will literally teach you a class worth of Flash knowledge through simple exercises.

However, I bought the book as a reference tool for the newer functions of CS4 and for the tools I had little experience with. The book covers almost every imaginable aspect of the software and I recommend it for beginners and seasoned Flash users upgrading to CS4 for the first time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adobe Flash CS4 Professional Classroom in a Book June 27 2009
Its perfect for people who are just beginning to learn how to make websites with flash, or movies.

Great product for beginners, and even greater manual for people who already know but are forgetful. Great examples which to build on and create interactive animations/applications.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed It! Feb. 14 2009
By Rob - Published on
I purchased this book in order to get more insight on all the features of Flash Professional. I wasn't disappointed. I thought the chapters were well organized. And everything worked the way the book said it would. Just follow the directions and you should do well.

Once you finish this book, get a copy of Action Script 3.0 for Adobe Flash CS4 Professional Classroom in a Book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Instructions, But Poor Editing July 26 2009
By Andrew Anissi - Published on
I'm using the Adobe Flash CS4 Classroom in a Book to learn Flash CS4 from scratch. The lessons are very good and very helpful, but I gave it a 4 / 5 because it is riddled with errors that should have been caught during editing. I don't mean proofreading errors, but rather substantive errors that a copy editor who is reading for understanding should be able to catch. It sometimes makes things a bit more confusing, but I've been able to understand what was meant, so not a big problem.

I like that the lessons are all explained through very helpful full color screenshots, so as a guide, I do recommend this book very much, but just hope that in the future Adobe works harder on the editing aspect of their text publishing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Especially recommended for self-instruction in Adobe Flash CS4 Feb. 13 2009
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Any seeking to learn Adobe Flash CS4 Professional will find key to such learning the Adobe Flash CS4 Professional Classroom in a Book. It comes from Adobe and covers all the basics of learning CS4 Professional, offering tips, techniques, and color photos throughout. While it will be of value to any lending library strong in computer courses, it's especially recommended for self-instruction in Adobe Flash CS4: as a step-by-step learner's primer, it can't be beat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Learning From Scratch? Jan. 29 2010
By Trevor J. Screws - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you want to learn Flash CS4, this is a great resource. The lessons are well organized and detailed; they are easy to follow, with step-by-step instructions for each lesson.

It was a pleasure to work through the book and I highly recommend it to anyone without any Flash experience. Please note, It does NOT include much about ActionScript, but there are additional books dedicated to ActionScript programming if you're interested.

2.0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware.... no lesson files included with the digital version! April 26 2011
By Thomas Milton Clarke - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This seems like a reasonably well organized and easily read book, but there is nowhere to go to download the lesson files which are an INTEGRAL part of the learning experience. Not only that, but there's nowhere to go to complain about it. Except here, of course. Which is going to do me and nobody else any good.
