just as the title says. i just got a laptop with this loaded and i want to start learing how its used and can be used. mainly just the basics. i've lurked here for quite a while, so i was hoping that someone here might have a few pointers on where to start and what to start with. books, dvd tutorial, or even a project i should start with. im a complete beginner with only my dad as help as he is a r&d for a company and they use this for all of their design. he is just learning this as well, and im playing a little catchup to get where he is at.
thanks for the help in advance - james
