DONT BOTHER WASTING YOUR MONEY ON COURSE PTR'S "Beginning DirectX9"
1)The printed code in the book is retarded - there are obvious (and notsoobvious) errors.
2)Its possible the CD wont work. . Mine didnt.
Find something else instead. . . I'm still in the process of finding that something else. . So any recommendations? (non-Course PTR would be preferred after this experience)
Its a shame, it was looking like a really good book until the errors started creeping in - it does a good job of explaining directX from a basic level, but I dont really think that alone justifies the price.
In other news, do other people here find it impossible to think while they're listening to music?
This is a real problem to me as over the last year ive become used to almost always having a pair of headphones on....
So keeping them off in order to think properly is really hard. .. Sometimes I look up and realise that id put them back on even without realising!
