Students are provided with “training from the source” that is developed by Macromedia's training experts. Lessons build on one another so as students work through the projects they gain a complete understanding of the program.
Students can assess at a glance, what they will be learning. Ample illustrations with detailed captions give students feedback as they step through projects.
End of chapter suggestions extend the book's value beyond the classroom. Students can gain more experience working in the program on suggested projects.
With the lessons in the book and the CD-ROM, this title provides all that the students need to start working in the program.
Macromedia Flash MX ActionScripting: Advanced Training From the Source teaches readers ActionScript using a hands-on, project-based approach. This book will be different in several ways. Instead of just explaining how scripting works, explains scripting by translating real-life activities into scripts, so that users can begin to see the association of how programming and scripting is something they instinctively already know how to do. Readers will be shown many methodologies and techniques for building nearly thirty real-life Flash ActionScript projects, including sample games, wireless applications, Web sites, and more, enabling them to work faster and more efficiently. The companion CD-ROM contains all project files and images necessary for each project in the book.
