Thanks this is a great book and showed up on time. This was also a very good discount considering how much textbooks are today.

Some one forget something! July 2 2011
By Billie Pelfrey - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
OK, it is a five star item, YET, someone at kindle forgot we need to be able to download the content of the DVD-ROM to complete the coursework on the book! DO NOT BUY KINDLE VERSION until they fix this, OR Buyer beware!

Good but not great March 2 2013
By Reader - Published on
Format: Paperback
As a newcomer to Pro Tools, I certainly learned a lot from reading this book; however, I learned even more from Pro Tools Ignite by Andrew Hagerman (also available on Amazon). If for some reason you can't get your hands on a copy of Ignite, then Courseware 101 would certainly be an acceptable substitute, especially if you're new to Pro Tools. Ignite, however, is my top recommendation.

Very basic for beginners. There are much better books available. June 17 2011
By A. Munoz - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book starts with the very most basic general concepts regarding digital recording tech info and the history of Digidesign. I have a little experience in the Logic Pro and I thought this would help me with the transition to Pro Tools. Although this book is good for some people, it is a bit of a waste if you have a general knowledge of how DAWs work. This book is for the most early of beginners. it can be a good reference, but it is not a complete reference (basic use only). For a beginners book I would give this 4 stars, losing one star for the graphics being black and white (and too dark to see clearly), and for calling this book Pro Tools 9 and leaving some Pro Tools 8 graphics in as pictures.

Perfect Feb. 14 2011
By Joninva1 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have been using Pro Tools 9 for about 3 months now kicking off the use with recording an EP. Coming off of other DAWs I thought it would be easy and mostly it was. Just going through the basics again with this course I feel like I have a better understanding of why everything works the way it does. I wouldn't go back to any other DAW after using PT9 and now with this course, I feel that way even more.

The absolute BASICS Dec 1 2012
By April Whelan - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This covers only the absolute basics. If you don't know how to open up Pro Tools, this can help you do that. Perhaps you don't know the history of Pro Tools, since that matters. It explains what the main buttons do. It couldn't tell me how to do a program change on MIDI files to determine instrument type. The index on the book is terrible and caused a lot of frustration.

I am still trying to find anything useful in this book. They really need to update the photos as some reviews have mentioned.
Depending on your experience this book is a hit or miss.
