I'd like to buy one of the New York Coin DVDs [there's sixteen total, I think] - would it be logical to start with #1 and work my way onwards or were they not designed that way?

Although each of the volumes stands on its own, I feel it is helpful to watch fhem in krder. Volume one on Coins across is a 2 disc set. They are sold as individual downloads by Vanishingincmagic (sale on now), and Meir Yedid as a DVD boxed set.

I just picked up the whole series download from Vanishing Inc. which was a great deal. I just started really looking at them.

Volume 1 is a 2 disc set and looks to be the longest of them all. As for straight bang for your buck, that would be a great choice to start with. I really appreciate Dr. Rubinstein's advice too because I was wondering if it would be best to bounce around or go straight through.

Also, Dr. Runinstein provided a list of each volume's table of contents in a previous post:

Alright, thanks for the tips, both of you - the fact the whole scheme starts off with a double disc is encouraging.

Not to be a Johnny-Changes-His-Mind on you, but would it be ridiculous to also be eyeing up the Michael Ammar introduction to coin magic as well? I really like Ammar's personality, but I don't want to try and pick up anything from him if he's operating at a different speed to the New York set - it would be like trying to learn skiing and snowboarding at the same time, which is just plain nuts

Myself, I'd look for The Encyclopedia Of Coin Sleights by Dr. Michael Rubinstein. Don't know if that 3-vol DVD set is still available.

Hey Doug, available as downloads from Vanishingincmagic and I would guess L&L. The Ammar series I hear is pretty good for beginners, and contains great material. It's different than the Seminar stuff, but certainly worth looking at.

I got the Ammar introduction series and David Roth's beginner series from L&L ePub site as downloads. They occasionally do some big discounts there if you keep you eyes open (I got them for 65% off I think). Both are good if you ask me. Dan Watkins has some reviews on his website for a lot of this material that I found helpful (http://www.coinvanish.com)

Oh, I hadn't even considered the single downloaded lesson option. I just bought David Roth's Vault: Retention - this might be just the start I am looking for, thanks
