    Smile Best Flash CS 3 Design Book?

    Hi,
    I am broke student at the University of Hawaii. I am learning flash design,and I am wondering which is the best book for designing with flash CS 3? I can only afford one book(not really, but,...) and it would be great if somebody could recommended the "must have" flash book.

    Thanks,
    Johnny

    There is no such thing as just one 'must-have' book... Flash is too versatile, from web page supplementing to full blown application development, from animating cartoons to creating games, there is too much to cover.

    A good place to START is this Learning Actionscript 3.0 http://www.amazon.com/Learning-Actio...5738247&sr=8-2

    For animation techniques and tips, How to Cheat in Flash CS3 is a good resource http://www.amazon.com/How-Cheat-Flas...738308&sr=8-10

    When you're ready to delve into more intense interactive applications (ala game development) this book is great because it'll get your hands dirty in AS3 OOP http://www.amazon.com/ActionScript-3...5738371&sr=1-9

    Then of course there are various cookbooks and reference books to get, but these ones will be for when you're comfortable with what Flash offers designers and developers.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your reply, yep I am learning that flash is a huge subject, lots of things to learn. I am loving it so far.

    I just bought Learning Actionscript 3.0 the other night is such a great book I love it`-`

    I also found foundation for flash CS 3, it it is a really good start for learning design in flash.

    Playing with drawing tonight, flash is so much fun`-`

    Thanks again for your help,
    Johnny
