HASH(0xa7bd6d08) out of 5 stars Some one forget something! July 2 2011
By Billy Pelfrey - Published on Amazon.com
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!

HASH(0xa7bd6f54) out of 5 stars Good but not great March 2 2013
By Reader - Published on Amazon.com
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.

HASH(0xa7c251b0) out of 5 stars Very basic for beginners. There are much better books available. June 17 2011
By A. Munoz - Published on Amazon.com
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.

HASH(0xa7c25354) out of 5 stars Mediocre book... has trouble with invisibility, i.e., print quality problems Oct. 11 2012
By Evan M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is definitely for beginners. I thought that'd be a good thing since I was moving up to version 9 of Pro Tools and thought I'd be covering my bases by not missing any vital information that way, but because it's written at such a basic level it's easy to surpass the information in it. I had it for about two hours before I had questions to which it didn't have the answers. So the depth of the book is just disappointingly thin.

The thing that causes me to rate it a 2, rather than a 3 however, is an unacceptable problem with printing quality. Many pages are faint or even blank for lack of ink. The index and table of contents are printed fine though for my particular copy, so I'm aware of the topics for which I'm missing out. This is the first textbook I've encountered that has been made to such a poor standard. I didn't have the time to work my way through the book until the return period expired, so that part is my own fault. But the fact that this problem exists at all is frustrating and reflects poorly on Avid.

HASH(0xa7c25228) out of 5 stars The absolute BASICS Dec 1 2012
By April Whelan - Published on Amazon.com
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.
