To remain on topic, I took a course over at this training site. It took a little time (9-10 hrs) but honestly @masky007 if you want to learn the interface and workflow of Nuke, this will probably be the fastest way to do it.
To stay on topic @masky007 I took the course at lynda training. It took some time but after that I was literally working gin Nuke instead of AE .. more or less Huge time saver.
The basics are the same, and the interface is basically the same. Nuke 6 added some additional functionality and NukeX added lots of stuff (Camera Tracker, Particles, etc). But to learn the basics, Nuke 5 training is still valid.
And as I'm gathering all the stuff together to have enough material for a long time... which of these book would you recommend to a beginner :
your avatar is just awesome
Yes... Steves first and then Rons (because the art and science is more on the technical side).
I think he means read Ron Brinkman first, then Steve Wright.
I found it easier that way, anyway.
Now I'm completely confused
L-rac says exact the opposite of tommy138 ??

If I may add one thing about the books.
Wrights book is more technical, you have more hands on examples, more expressions, curves, node-charts etc. It's great if you want to make your own keyer and need to go back and read about it first.
Brinkmanns book is more theoretical. More about how you see stuff, how reality is and looks like. E.g. how does defocus work and why does it look that way?.
They both have theoretical and technical stuff, and treat the same subjects. I found that they work together pretty well. Brinkmanns say it should look like This, Wrights say how you do That.
Opinions based on second editions of both books and it's only mine opinion^^
