4-0 out of 5 stars Great beginners book
Honestly a few days ago I did not know a thing about 3D Studio Max 8. All that I knew was that I needed to learn it. This book Ultimately is the beginner's bible for those out there that have no clue about how to use 3d Studio Max. It is divided into sections which cover all the bases from the Overall user interface, modelling, Animation, texturing and finally rendering.
4-0 out of 5 stars Great book
Great book for 3D beginners, but that's about it. Some tutorials on ligting and shadows are pretty good.

5-0 out of 5 stars Hands on for beginners
I am new to the world of 3d and have no clue with regards to a 3d environment. My company bought 3ds Max 8 and have also sent me on a course to "get-up-to-speed" quickly. Before the course started I thought I would purchase this book so that I do not look like a total novice on the course. What I love about the book is that it explains concepts and then moves into a practicle aspects of what it explained. At all times I knew exatly what I had to do (as they have many screen dumps) and I never found myself looking for a button or a tab (which I often find myself doing with training matterial). I have completed the book and have attended 2 days of the 3ds Max course. To my amazement I would say that I am compentent at this stage of the course.

4-0 out of 5 stars Needs reconstruction, but a good book
Let me begin by saying that years back I won an international award for something or other to do with contributions to ergonomics - the design of a computer system in fact. I looked at this book as a possible text for an undergraduate course I teach.This is a good book, despite the reviews, if you have the time the read it. It is thorough at the theoretical end and pretty damn thorough at that. If you want to know the history of HCI, recent and possible developments, this is a good book - but it is just too long for most undergrads and this is the main problem. Most undergrads believe that HCI is just pure waffle and in many cases that is unarguable - it takes the likes of Jef Raskin to restore some intellectual credibility to the area.
1-0 out of 5 stars Difficult to read
I'm a CS student with 7 years of IT experience. This book is compulsory for my course so I have no choice but to read it. I would rate this book among worst IT books ever. Although, some ideas suppose to be useful, but the language and lack of illustrations make them dull and unclear. Moreover, it has unreasonable complicity to describe a simple idea or situation, definitely confusing readers. It's kind of funny that one of the main purpose of this book is to teach you to design a good and understandable interface, but in opposite, it has a quite bad interface itself.

1-0 out of 5 stars Worst HCI textbook ever
The audience of this book are supposedly to be undergraduate students taking user interface design or usability analysis classes. However, this book lacks the insights and conceptual depth commonly required by a college level textbook. This book simply uses too much pages to describe common senses without covering the real non-trival HCI knowlege people accumulated in the past thirty years. I feel this book might be ideal for high-school students as HCI readings, it's definately not for undergradates, researchers or professionals who want to impove their own skills in user-centered design. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Helped me polish my expertise
I knew enough to do the basics, but not enough to take full advantage of the program.The book is a very helpful desk reference.I am not a professional, but I do make documents in publisher and work, as well as a few things in adobe illustrator.Now I know some tricks of the trade, and wondered why I never bought this earlier!Thanks.

5-0 out of 5 stars Has info. not available elsewhere.
I got this book for my brother, who just bought Acrobat 7 Professional to create fillable forms with special functions. He tried and tried to do what he wanted, but until I gave him this book, he wasn't able to figure out how to do what he wanted to. This book had the specific information that taught him how to do what he wanted. I was amazed, because he even downloaded a huge amount of information from Adobe's Web site in his search for the right info. and couldn't get what he needed.
3-0 out of 5 stars Not for Macs
This is not a bad book, but it's mistitled. It should be "How to Do Everything with Adobe Acrobat 7.0 for Windows." It ignores nearly all differences in the program and procedures for the Mac version, and nowhere does it warn you of this. Hello? Anyone home? ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars amust-have book if you are in this area
The author is an expert in RTP/RTCP area, and this book is a must-have reference if you are working on this area or interested in . inlcuding VoIP/Videoconferencing, Streaming. The book presents the all technical aspects of RTP/RTCP precisely and correctly.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent material - well presented
Colin Perkins is obviously well regarded in the area of RTP with many papers and research to his credit. This book is a very thorough and readable text on RTP. All aspects of RTP are covered in sufficient depth. The only thing that would have improved it would have been access to code. At various sections in the book he refers to an RTP stack that he has written. If this were made available as part of the book it would have been a killer combination.Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars One good read.
I really enjoyed reading this book.It helped get me caught-up with the digital photo age, and it was filled with useful information.One thing I also found is that if I already knew some material, I had forgotten I knew it; and this then re-enforced it.
4-0 out of 5 stars Recommended, with some reservations...
This book should have something of interest to most digital SLR users.It's full of useful tips and explanations that should appeal to a wide range of skill and experience levels.That being said, some caution is in order for those at either extreme the learning curve.Experienced SLR users will find that much of the material here is a review of basic concepts (how aperture effects depth of field, shutter speed and motion), wide angel vs. telephoto perspective, etc. Sometimes a refresher on the basics is good, however, and there were lots of little facts and tricks thrown in that most would find interesting.Those new to photography or SLR's should read with caution, however, due to some simple editing mistakes.For example, page 51:Fig 1.32 shows a histogram with with all tones bunched and clipped to the left, properly captioned as underexposed.Fig 1.33 shows shows tones all in the middle range, improperly captioned as overexposed.Fig 1.34 shows tones bunched and clipped to the right improperly captioned as properly exposed.To someone experienced this is an obvious layout/editing error.To someone new this would be confusing or misleading.(I noted similar errors in Busch's D200 Field Guide)

5-0 out of 5 stars This is the book I've been looking for!!!
I've been using Premiere Elements for about a month.Until yesterday I've been slogging through the user manual and the help screens.I struggled to do the very basics--creatung slide shows, capturing video and gluing clips together, saving the output to DVD.Nothing fancy at all.
5-0 out of 5 stars Practical applications of a powerful program
I don't care what anyone says -- sometimes reading the manual is just too painful.Not that Adobe's manual is bad, it's just... dry, and doesn't really show you practical applications of the program's features..The "Premiere Elements 2 In A Snap" book makes learning Premiere Elements' ins and outs fun, and does it in a way that you don't have to weed through endless paragraphs to figure out what needs to be done.

This is the first book i have ever started at the beginning and did each and every step.....and i had a ball!

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome InDesign Training Manual!
This book is phenomenal! After purchasing several different manuals covering the various main components of Adobe Creative Suite 2 (Illustrator CS2, InDesign CS2, Photoshop CS2 and GoLive CS2) I found myself wishing that Lynda.com published a Hands-On Training book for every component of CS2. The combination of Brian Wood's clear writing style and the included bonus exercises and demo movies made me feel like I had my own personal InDesign instructor right beside me.Everyone who wants to learn InDesign from the comfort of their own desk should have a copy of this book. I highly recommend it!

3-0 out of 5 stars Too slow
I have bought linda books in the past and they are very good beacuse of the inclusion of quicktime movies and excersises. But I find this book too slow. The fact that you have to be 4 chapters to be able to put text in the document it's a drawback. To spend 3 chapters to tell you how to create a guide, I think it's for retards or 6th grade students. I regret spending the money on the book. I think I 'll try the Classroom in a Book CS2 since I had the previus CS1 that was good. I would not recomended for classroom beacause students will get bored. But it's a good option for non-designer people.

5-0 out of 5 stars Training for Indesign CS2
I work for an architect firm in which we used the old Pagemaker for doing our marketing and proposals brochures.We upgraded to Indesign CS2.I have never had any formal training in using Pagemaker or any marketing software.I simply edited over previous brochures to launch my new projects.So I really felt overwhelmed when I first opened the software and didn't know where to begin.I went to a large book store and took off the shelf every training book I could find on learning InDesign CS2. There were a couple dozen books out there.I choose this book because I could relate to it.It explains very clearly everything you need to know to get started using it.It has pictures or diagrams on just about every page showing you exactly where to go and how to do what they are explaining.Then you are directed to a practice exercise or video (on the training disk which comes with the book) to reinforce what you have learned.In my opinion if you are "green" to this software this is the best book for the average lay person.I even tried taking an 8 week class on InDesign CS2 which used the Adobe "Classroom In A Book".I ended up dropping the class because I thought I could learn more efficiently on my own using this book.I can't tell you exactly why but I did not like Adobe's Classroom In a Book as well as Brian Wood's Hands-On Training. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars AWFUL!
Did anybody proofread this book?If Macromedia had bothered to have someone unfamiliar with the book work through the exercises they would have discovered that just the first chapter has more errors than you can shake a stick at.The book refers to files on the disk that don't exist.You're told to load a file that 'you created earlier in this lesson' which has never been mentioned before.It's as though entire pages have been deleted from this book, yet the information on those pages is refered to later.After a few very frustrating hours with this book I'm ready to pitch it out the window.
1-0 out of 5 stars Try another training manual
The examples that the manual goes through is not applicable to using flash for website design.The examples in the book are more gear towards creating a flash application.I wish I didn't spend money on this.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but not great either
I do have to say I expected more from the "mouth" of Macromedia but it did have some tips that where useful. However the QA team must have been asleep on this book editing because there are numerous path errors, missing descriptions, broken code and I also believe the book was translated or at least it would seem that way.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Soundtrack Pro Book
Mary Plummer, whose fun book on Apple Soundtrack helped walk users through the features of what was once a relatively limited utility, has upgraded the curriculum for the revamped Soundtrack Pro, a tool some have called "the Photoshop of audio". Now, as a Photoshop user myself, I wouldn't say Soundtrack has quite the depth to yet make that claim ... however, Apple has indeed rebuilt it from the ground up into what is leaps and bounds beyond the clip/loop manager it had been before. And Ms. Plummer, who has seen it grow each step of the way, has penned the best (if not only, at this time) source with which to learn its awesome capabilities.

1-0 out of 5 stars terrible text for undergrads
I am a civil engineering student and this was the text for my structural mechanics course, and I hated it. There were no exaamples, those contained within skipped half of the steps, and there were numerous errors throughout the text. I do not reccommend this text to other students.

4-0 out of 5 stars Solutions Manual necessary
Like all his books, Hibbeler does a wonderful job organizing and laying out the material.However, also like his other books, the example problems in the chapter are not in the same realm of difficulty as the problems at the end of the chapter.With subject matter this difficult, it would be an excellent idea to acquire the solutions manual, a nearly impossible book to find.Good Luck!

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Good For Self Study
I have studied every single page of this book. It is very good for self study and an ideal one towards undergraduate perfection. Complex topics are told in a very clear manner. Examples and figures make the book so understandable. Strongly recommended before entering into advanced topics...Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Now i want all my books to be like this
One of the best books on software that i ever bought. I've been working with GoLive for quite a while now and just can't believe how many useful things i didn't know about it yet. So many shortcuts that enhance productivity, so many features that i paid too little attention to.
4-0 out of 5 stars good companion to a standard GoLive text
Adobe offers GoLive as a powerful tool to build pages in a website. It is complicated enough that the authors of this book present 200 tips, to perform common and useful tasks.
5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Read for All GoLive Users
I have been using GoLive since the Cyberstudio days, and this book STILL florred me on how much useful information it contained. Everything from the "Well duh! I can't believe I didn't know that" to the "WOW" tips are in here.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Resource for Windows Media Formats
Despite it being three years since the release of this book, it remains the definitive guide to dealing with most Windows Media Streaming issues. To date, it's the single most useful book available on working with the WMA, WMV, and ASF formats. Starting with the basics of explaining the difference between streaming and downloading, the book immediately jumps into all the nitty-gritty details related to encoding audio and video files for streaming, the complex considerations for outfitting a streaming server, when to use unicast or multicast, creation of on-the-fly server side playlists, and some of the most comprehensive compression formulas available. While there are obviously competing alternatives to the Windows Media content delivery solutions, the Windows Media Resource Kit provides a compelling argument for why the Windows Media solution may be among the most effective available. Yes, Windows Media Player 10 is out now and Windows Media Player 11 is coming soon, but the information contained in this guide will be relevant for content delivery at least until the release of Windows Vista. I hesitate to call this the bible of Windows Media content creation and management, but it comes close.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not worth it
This book is really a complete waste of money - it can only be used for developing quick and dirty solutions using the windows media player and so on.
5-0 out of 5 stars A whole new set of ideas from reading this book.
I thought that the Media player was used for videos, music and online content. While this is true there is so much more that can be done with the application and this book will help guide you through.Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars beginners please
Logically and spaciously designed, well-written and conceived, ilife 06 is the perfect beginner's introduction to creative tools. It allows someone who has net zero experience in visual, audio, or web processing to put something together on the web in a matter of days. The reason ilife 06 is so good is that it limits itself to instructing true beginners and never tries to be an all-in-one manual. Of course that's also the book's downside: it will only take you through the software's most basic uses, even though the ilife suite is a much deeper set of applications. Result: eventually you'll need another instructional guide, but untill then, this is the best start-up on the market.

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for beginners and intermediates alike
Some of the other reviews have dinged this book because of its "beginner" nature, but this is precisely why you are using a training book for beginner to intermediate type software.If you knew how to use the software already, why would you need a book?No program in iLife '06 is professional quality, it was never meant to be.
2-0 out of 5 stars Book lacks much information.
After glancing through the book I was very disappointed.The introduction told you that this was not a comprehensive guide and it was merely a supplement to other information such as the help and Jim Held's book.This was not stated in the information on the book.If that's the case, why not get Jim Held's book? I was particularly interested in iWeb.The information given for iWeb was sparce.It merely gave information on setting up a page and importing pictures from iPhoto onto the web page.It said nothing about links and other important web information.Perhaps it was on the disk.I dont know. I never opened thedisk because I knew I wanted to return the book. The only reason I gave it two stars at all was because it said that the disk contained turorials. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Not very deep
I found the guide disappointing.It reads like an expanded manual rather than a strategy guide.It doesn't hesitate to tell you the history of the various units and weapons, but it is lacking in actual strategy-- the very reason why I purchased the "Official Strategy Guide".
1-0 out of 5 stars Total waste of $20
I would just like to add another voice to the one below which I completely agree with.He has pretty much summed it up.I just want to stress that the multiplayer maps are covered in one page each with absolutely no useful strategy.To be fair there are some very very general strategies but nothing specific and absolutely no maps to explain these strategies.How can they get away with trash like this!

1-0 out of 5 stars Useless and highly inaccurate
The descriptions of units are worthless, virtually the same as in the manual. Very obvious points are made about unit abilities, mostly a rehash of info in the manual. Several facts are simply wrong. There is a ton of historical info on the real-world counterparts of all the game units.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Director MX Book!
This is a great reference book - the author says it is not really meant to be read all the way through and it is described asnot for beginners, but I think any Director user except perhaps the most advanced could benefit from this book either as a reference or complete read or both. I especially like all of the side notes scattered throughout the book, plus the troubleshooting and Did You Know? sections at the end of each chapter. His descriptions of some components of Lingo were the first I've read that I really understood. He also includes 7 bonus chapters and a Lingo reference on the CD! This book is packed with info, and even though it is now one version of Director behind the current one, I still recommend having it on your reference shelf. If you really use Director for either work or play, you won't regret it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Listen to me..... its the words of wisdom
I really don't have to get into detail. This is the book you want to have when you need something to go back on and read. This is the 1st book that helped me the most i only used 4 books but this one was the one that made me go back and read up again and me as a person that hates to read, I learn a ton of stuff from this very book. I'm telling you right now no one here can tell you all the details this one book has but if you pick it up and read it you will see for your self that this book is worth more then it cost. He even has a mixure of games inside the cd its crazy. This book chills in my back pack when i need some lingo codes and which im back in director for the 3d field im just useing it to bring back the old codes which this book holds. All i can tell you is that this is a great book for director and perhaps one of the best i have encounter you won't regrate it trust me on that.

5-0 out of 5 stars VERY GOOD BOOK
This book states it's the only Director MX book you will ever need ... well, it's TRUE.Buy it, you will not be disappointed.Director is a great tool.Especially if you have a programming background, you will embrace the power of Lingo to create multimedia applications.This book shows some of the best Lingo examples I have seen up to now in Director books.It's good as a learning book and it's equally good as a reference book. ...
