I've search here in the forum and found nothing yet.

All I can do, in Flex, is a Hello World!!!

I want to learn more about Flex and get certificate on it. Can someone tell me a good book?

I found these but I don't know which one is good:
Flex 4 Cookbook
Adobe Flex 4: Training from the Source, Volume 1 And dobe Flex 4: Training from the Source, Volume 2
Hello! Flex 4
Flash Builder 4 and Flex 4 Bible

Thanks in advance!

This is a good place to start... http://www.adobe.com/devnet/flex/videotraining.html?sdid=FCMWB

If you're really set on buying a book, I would pick up Flex 4 in Action. Then once you know the Flex basics, you should check out the most excellent book Flex on Java. ;)

Thanks for the reply Jeremy.

I rather a book because I do not have a good internet connection for video streams. Only next year I will try to get a good one! \o/

I will try download those videos at my job.

Thanks for the tips! [=

Why do you want a certificate? Is your job pressuring you to get certified in Flex? I'm only asking because it may not be worth the $ to pay for a certification if all you really need is experience. Look for opportunities to get on a Flex project or find an opportunity where Flex is a good choice for solving a business problem and ask if you can get the work. Just a thought.. Read books and get experience to learn because you have a passion to do so!

I'm going to second this. I also recommend a strong understanding of Actionscript. Learning Flex by itself can lead to a "shallow" understanding of the underlying technology.
