That depends. What type of card sleights do you want to learn?

From what I remember, the sleights taught on the tapes starts with the easiest ones first, like the terminology on the first volume then gets progressively harder with each volume. Out of all my videos this set is definitely the one Ive gone back to the most over the years. I only wish I could trade in vhs for dvd Smile

I have the dvds and they are a great reference source (alongside card college and royal road, I still like to own books!) but the vhs would 'do my head in'. DVD is great as I can jump straight to where I want to go and loop it, repeat it etc. I would say the vhs would be a false economy, though in the case of routines a video is just as good but collection of sleights dvd wins hands down.

As to which volume, that is a tough one. Look at the sleights and decide which you want to learn. If you only allowed me one, then I might go with vol 4 which covers a lot of card controls. Spend the extra and get the dvd though, or if you can't afford that your money would be better spent on a vhs of a few tricks.

I'm not sure what kind of tricks you are into but one of my favorite volumes is volume 7. They all are great. You can learn a lot from any of them!)Good Luck!

The question is; where do you need work, what do you want? If your a base beginner #1 but I would MUCH rather suggest a book. Otherwise I do not believe past volume 4 they go so much in the order of experience as they go in order of types of sleights. They are a wonderful thing, do not however use them exclusively.
Almost every book no matter how cheap, will have some strange little gem that will make you rethink everything.
Magic is doing improbable things with odd items that, under normal circumstances, would be unnessecary and quite often undesirable.

I am pretty much an intermediate, I know all my breaks, controls,and forces and stuff too, I want to know witch one I would benefit the most from. Oh and I would buy them on dvd but to spend 20 dollars more for the same stuff sounds crazy to me

I have Simon Lovell's Toolbox and really like his style.
This set seems similar.
