Sams Teach Yourself Video Learning brings the successful book series from Sams Publishing to life on video -- with the same clear and concise style, practical hands-on examples, and self-paced learning approach that have made the bestselling books so popular with beginners looking for the easiest way to quickly get up to speed on a new technology. This Video Learning Starter Kit provides four hours of carefully crafted video training lessons, as well as all the software and source files that the beginner needs in order to be able to follow along with the lessons and create the examples on his or her own computer. Each 10-minute video lesson uses the same step-by-step learning structure that has proven so effective in all Sams Teach Yourself books. After a short overview of the topic from the series instructor, each lesson presents a short, richly illustrated tutorial lesson, followed by a hands-on learning lab, and concluding with an interactive quiz lets the learner test how well he or she has grasped the material before moving on.
