One of the new support resources we launched with our Q3 release in November was the brand new RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX Step By Step Learning Guide. The Learning Guide, written by the RadControl and training experts at Falafel, fills almost 800 pages (!) with everything you need to know to be a productive Telerik developer. In fact, there is so much content that we had to split the book in to two parts: the Step by Step Learning Guide (about 600 pages) and the companion ActiveSkill Guide (about 190 pages). The ActiveSkill Guide shows you how to take the knowledge you've gained in the Learning Guide and apply it to build a complete real world application with the RadControls.

Both books are available now for on-demand printing on Lulu.com, but the PDF (as always) is freely available on Telerik.com (along with source code). We make the books available for print for those of you that don't want to burn 800 pages worth of toner. That said, to keep costs down, the Lulu books are in black and white, so if you want hard copies in glorious color, you'll need to print your pages (or tell us you want a full-color Lulu version, and we'll get that set up, too- it'll just cost you about $120).
And while you're browsing the new books on Lulu, don't forget that we also have a Telerik Reporting Learning Guide and Step By Step Guide for the old non-ASP.NET AJAX controls, too. Enjoy the reading!
