    "Getting Started with PowerShell 3.0 Jump Start is a decent multimedia experience overall but I wish it were interactive. I would like it more if it asked you questions throughout to see if you're actually learning the material as it goes on."

    "This is a good resource if you already know some programming. I used it mainly as a reference to learn scripts to modify my database and day to day tasks for work. It won't teach you the fundamentals, instead it jumps right into PowerShell. You do need a little bit of background in another language. "
