To learn Flex you start with scripting relative languages mxml, etc , or with learning the menus in Flash Builder? how you proceed after you startup? Learning Flex you must choose a server side scripting language from the ones you know very well, and use it by a way in Flex works? like JAVA if I am familiar with? if yes, your book what server side scripting language make use? If indeed, this is the case, what level of JAVA I must have, SE & EE & ME?

Learning the menus in Flash Builder won't get you very far. It is language driven, and while the IDE provides good support, core language/syntax knowledge is key. The good news is that Actionscript/MXML is relatively easy to learn with prior experience with other languages.

when you say "core language/syntax" you mean only Actionscript/MXML or and one server side lang REQUIRED, like java/jsp? Can you recommend any textbook in Actionscript/MXML? the Actionscript is exactly the same as FLASH PROFESSIONAL Actionscript? how many months study in Actionscript/MXML, to move to learning menues in BUILDER? IF REQUIRED one server side lang, what level of JAVA I must have, SE & EE & ME to proceed in learning Actionscript/MXML and thereafter BUILDER-MENUES?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.

JAVAfx is the same as JSF, Or JSF is a framework like Struts, which (Struts) can also used in JAVAfx
