EDIT#2: You need Flash Player 10 to view this correctly...
EDIT: I've already cheched all the bugs. I think they're fixed now. Sorry if it annoyed you. I'm also learning AS, so I thought writing what I know including a bit of research would work. I'll start working on fixing the bugs. Thanks for reviewing.

I like it very much.

It's very helpful and will be favorited. However, why not use something other than the '...for idiots' brand? Unless you own it, that's infringement, and frankly, I think you coulda done better using your own mascot.
You did tie the style together nicely, and it looks very professional.

Looks like you didn't include any stop frame commands. Can't read anything. It all goes by WAAAAY too fast.

It seems you don't have flash player 10

Title was promising, but... that's it

I got kinda interested in this when I saw the title, as I have added Flash on my to-learn (it's like to-do) list a while ago.
However, this flash was done really badly. Even a quick test would have shown a number of the problems. Firstly there is no way to return to the index - which is problematic when there is no way to move forward when you have clicked a chapter and are at the end of it. Also, the back and forward buttons do not work in all instances. I am not sure if you wanted them to work, but if you did not you should have removed them! Dead buttons should not be present in a flash.

As to the content, it was quite disappointing too. Besides just barely any content being present, there is a quite big problem with it. Personally, I learned next to nothing because I have been programming for years and years now. For others who do not have this experience, I think that the bar is raised too high - as they would have no clue what a variable is after reading your piece on it. So as you see, the problem is that there is no (or barely any) public for which this flash is usable.

I'm sorry, but this flash is just really disappointing.

Thanks for reviewing. The first SWF I submitted had an AS problem I skipped. I just opened it and found out the bug, It is fixed now. About the index button, I'll work on it.

I think it must just be a broken Movie Clip, most certainly not piss poor scripting in a tutorial about scripting. That would be ludicrous.
