I wonder if it possible to recommend me a good book for learning ArcGIS 9. Having browsed the web, I found three books that are on the market. Namely, 1. Getting started with ArcGIS9 by Crosiet et al, 2. Getting to know ArcGIS Desktop, the basics of ArcView, ArcEditor, and ArcInfo by Tim Ormsby et al, 3. Mastering ArcGIS with video clips and CD-Rom by Maribeth Price.
I have no clue regarding strengths and weaknesses of the above mentioned books; hence, I wonder if you could recommend any of the above books. As self learner, I am looking for a book that can teach me ArcGIS software from beginner to intermediate or advanced level. I also hope the recommended book will come with evaluation CD to execute the exercises.
Your assistance in this matter will be greatly appreciated.
