Most have DX 10 versions in print now and as there is increasingly a lack of backwards compatibility you should start learinng the more recent iterations.

Thanks :)
Start with the first one (with the dragon on the cover!), watch out for guides including CD worked examples as the CD versions change more frequently than the print versions & often the examples in the book and on the disks don't tie up properly.  It's not a bad thing just look out for it as it can get confusing if you're not expecting it.
