Which do you perfer to learn from? On-line tutorials and forums or books?
I personally perfer books.
I agree that there is a wealth of information on the web. Some tutorial sites and forums are just awesome, but I can't take my computer to work and browse the net at break.
Comfort is another issue. My butt and back can take only so much in front of the computer screen, but find a nice comfy chair and I can be engrossed for quite some time.
What say you? And Why?
I prefer reading something on a computer than in print(be it an ebook or a tutorial).
Oline is great because you can get very specific information about this or that script etc. very quickly and often it will be just what you need, however when attempting to learn an entirely new language I usually get a book from the library, read it through, and then once I start experimenting with my own scripts, I use the web for more specific answers.
I say I like internet a bit better because I usually have access to a computer, and I don't have to go to the library, search around, find out the book is out/at different library, wait, etc. I find the internet is faster for my everyday needs.
