This review is from: Adobe Flash Professional CS6 Classroom in a Book (Paperback)
Adobe Flash Professional CS6 is a program beyond words. Your designs are only limited by your imagination. Because this is such an epic program, it needs an epic training manual. My Classroom in a Book copy definatly is. The lesson structures are very easy to navigate through. It's concise yet very informative lessons allow you to tackle this MAMMOTH program head-on. I would even recommend this book to someone that has yet to use the program and has no expierience in web design and development or graphic design whatsoever. Myself, having a masters in web design and development including a bachelor's in graphic design, would give this bhook an A+. I'd only give all the competing books of this type a "C++" (pun intended! ^_^ ). Another good thing about it is it was written and composed by the very people and company that wrote Adobe Creative Suite 6 to begin with. For those people that want to create the most advanced and creative web content ever, but dont have the know how to use Flash, this book is for you. The only negative remark I would leave about this piece of literature is this: the lesson files have not changed really at all from the Flash CS5 book (the previous volume in the educational series from ~2010). Most of the textual content is also the same or very similar like it was just copied and pasted. I mean at least create new lesson example files...
One last thing is that I believe that this book should COME WITH the Flash CS6 software package...I mean it IS $800.00. Or at the very least, it should be included in the Adobe Creative Studio 6 Design premium bundle or at least the master collection, (which happens to be $2,899.00). I mean, I dished out that kind of money, I should at least get these volumes for a free or very reduced price. Overall though, great book for an amaing product!!!!

I used to write software manuals and I remember when I first bought Adobe InDesign, it came with a great manual. These days the best way to go about learning new Adobe products is to buy the Classroom in a Book series (particularly if you're a beginner - as I am in Flash) and use the online forums for in-depth help. It's going to be another month before I buy the package with Flash, but thanks to the customer reviews here (and past experience with the Classroom in a Book series), I've put this on my Wishlist!

I agree with you when you say the software should come with a book or perhaps even a reduced price offer. Luckily great companies like Amazon are offering them at a reasonable price but Adobe should try to make a better effort in including educational material especially for newbies like.

Thank you for reviewing as your comment will play a factor in purchasing the book.
