    Advanced Flex learning

    Kh7
      Hello,
      I'm learning Flex 3 and now have basic Flex understanding. Currently read "Learning Flex 3" by Alaric Cole, but there are only basics in this book.
      What books can you, guys, recommend for advanced studies?

          Google :-)

          Lynda.com is also frequently recommended.

            I hi there, I think you should be more specific what topics are you most interested in?

              Very good courses. I forgot to mention that spent some time studing "Flex 3 Essential Training" videos. Maybe it's a good idea to watch "Flex 3 Beyond the Basics" too.

              Create desktop applications, using Flex and AIR.

                The best thing you can do is to go through these FlexBuilder help topics and all their sub-topics TWICE. It will take several weeks, but if you go through all this material TWICE, copying and compiling all the sub-programs, you will extend your knowledge sufficiently.
