I have been using actuat for a little while too.

I have found the best support comes from the manulas provided with the software and the help desk contact.

I have searched for some books but have had little luck.
If you have purchased and installed the ERD Pro, you will have the Actuate manuals in PDF on the CD.

Hard copies of manuals can be purchased directly from Actuate, take a look at the Actuate Resources page
