Actionscript 3.0 Cook Book

Actionscript 3.0 Cook Book
Adobe Dev Library | 586 pages | October 11, 2006 | ISBN: 0596526954 | chm | 846 kb

Depending on the user this book can be used in different ways. The first way is to find specific answers to certain situations that may arise from everyday programming. The tables of contents are broken down into discrete sections pertaining to one aspect of AS3. If you are looking for help on string formatting a quick glance in the TOC will be a great start. In each section it is further broken down into sub-sections each addressing a particular point or "problem" that needs to be resolved. These sections are broken down into "Problem", "Solution" and "Discussion". Most sections show a short problem and solution but the meat of the text resides in the discussion portion. With the combination of code and explanation really breaks down the problem to a level most developers can understand. Additional footnotes are used to tie concepts together from section to section or "recipe to recipe". The second way to read this book is cover to cover. Even though these topics are broken down in specific problems, learning from "quasi-real world issues" are always a great way to learn. To be honest I would have also preferred a table of contents with the actually problems mentioned in each section. I saw myself having to thumb through the whole book getting acquainted with what it had to offer. If there is that link established then when I do encounter that issue my mind will remember that I read something similar in this book. My overall impression was positive and will keep this book handy for future reference.
