Is their CD worth it? It seems to have considerably more than the tutorials on the website...

i dont have the cd and i guess you can find free tutorials about nearly every topic somewhere. msdn and google were sufficient for me. there were some topics which i had problems finding code examples (cant remember what that was) but i finally found something in french (i dont speak french but i searched for a bit of code). newsgroups are also a good source.
bottom line is: i dont think you'll need a cd if you have some time to browse through some sites. there are so many tutorials available that you wont have problems to find something about 99% of the problems you encounter. for the rest theres still the forum here :) i'm sure everyone will be glad to help you if there is nothing available at the msdn page or google.

edit: some ppl also like to have books (the heavy paper thingies) but i always found that online tutorials were a better source because you cant search for words in a book.

I never found their tutorials to be that great. They all seem to just be code implementations rather than actual "tutorials" that explain something. I know the code is commented, but I'd much rather have a description of how something works than have to pour through someone else's implementation of an algorithm.

cheers
