5.0 out of 5 stars great resource for beginners or those wanting to refresh their skills in the new CS5 version of Flash. Sept. 6 2010
By Monica Surrency - Published on Amazon.com
This is a great resource for a wide range of Flash users. If you are a beginner, this is a great book with easy to follow step by step instructions that include full color images along with supplemental video tutorials. The book covers items from beginning animation to action script and including audio and video into your Flash projects. The instructions are written for PC and Mac.

I have used Flash since the old MX version and have gone through many upgrades; this book is good reference tool for learning the new features in CS5. I'm a working professional with no time to take a classes to keep up with the new features in the new creative suite; so this is like having a classroom at my fingertips.

Although there is a lot of helpful information on Action Script in here; this is probably not a book advanced coders would use. However, if you are not an advanced coder and just want an easy to understand information on how to use/create basic and practical action scripting; this book does a great job.

5.0 out of 5 stars The easiest way to learn flash Jan. 2 2011
By Cory lanza - Published on Amazon.com
I have never used Flash before I read this. I got this because I thought it would be better than taking a course, and I was right. Not only is it much cheaper than taking a course, but it gives just as much information if not more about Flash. I am only thirteen and I fully understood the book and thought it was easy to read. It comes with a helpful DVD with the most important parts of each of the fifteen lessons, however it doesn't contain everything in the book. The book explains all of the concepts of Flash from the basics to the advanced all in step by step instructions. It contains everything you need to know about Flash like animation, actionscript, using imported files from photoshop, and navigation controls.
I personally am learning Flash so I can create animations and build a website using Flash and I found out everything I need to know and more about that and all the other uses of Flash. whether you have Windows or Macintosh it has the controls for either one. I rate this book five stars and say that anyone who wants to laern Flash should buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Resource for all Flash Users Dec 13 2010
By E. Politis - Published on Amazon.com
I've been using Flash for many years, and I own several Flash resources. I find myself going back to this book, not only because it's the most up-to-date reference I have, but also because the content is presented quite well. I've learned quite a bit from the other Digital Classroom editions, so I was pleased to learn that the series would be continuing with CS5. The lessons are easy to follow and convey their intended information clearly. The training DVD is also an excellent feature, as it's very helpful to follow along with the lesson (particularly if you have two screens), and see it "in action." Great for the beginner, as well as seasoned Flash users who want to learn a bit about the new features in CS5.

5.0 out of 5 stars Takes the mystery out of Flash Oct. 22 2010
By CreativeMom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am not a long-time Flash user, so I can't compare this book to other resources or previous versions. However, I can tell you that I got a lot out of this book - it made Flash much more approachable for me, and gave me the confidence to really explore the program. The lessons are written in such a way that I didn't fell "talked down to," it was like a knowledgeable friend walking me through the steps. I love having this book and the DVD tutorials here at home so I can work at my own pace, mark up the book, cross reference when needed, and just have fun while I'm learning. The only minor negative I can share (and it's actually a compliment to the writers of the book) is that I am having so much fun with Flash now that I find myself spending hours immersed in the program! Thanks to the knowledge I gained from these lessons, I feel confident adding proficiency in Flash to my resume.

If you are looking for a book that will give you a solid foundation in Flash, look no further. You'll be happy with this one.
