    Hi everyone,

    I'm learning Flash (still on CS3 due to hardware unfortunately) and I'm looking for recommendations for an intermediate/advanced textbook.

    I worked through this (Flash CS3 Professional for Windows and Macintosh:Visual QuickStart Guide: Amazon.co.uk: Katherine Ulrich: Books) and found it pretty good for the basics, so moved onto this (Flash CS3 Professional Advanced for Windows and Macintosh:Visual Quickpro Guide: Amazon.co.uk: Russell Chun: Books) but i'm really not finding it so useful.

    Getting into the chapters on scripting and I think that the examples are quite poor: screen grabs don't match the text in some cases, and it sometimes explains the theory then gives a poor example to implement it. Just kind of left with the feeling that I'm not learning things as well as i'd like to...

    Was considering this (Essential ActionScript 3.0: Amazon.co.uk: Colin Moock: Books) but wondered if that would be a leap too far for an intermediate user?

    Any feedback would be great,

    thanks!

    Sam

    I'm not that familiar with Flash but I have had some good experience with Lynda.com. They have monthly subscriptions which cost probably less than half of what you pay for some of those books.

    I am a visual learner so videos work best for me. Some prefer reading but if you like videos, give them a shot. They have free chapters for all of their stuff so you can get a feel for it.
