You’ll find it far easier to familiarize yourself with Flash MX if you already know how to use Flash. If you don’t, don’t worry. There are plenty of resources available for those starting at step one. The Flash MX development environment even comes with its own built-in contextual tutorials, which are pretty good. Macromedia frequently offers in-person half-day and full-day courses in major cities.
