Release Date: April 1, 2009
Updated and Enhanced edition of the TntMPD Training Manual released in January 2009. This guide has been field-tested in classroom settings, and as a result has extensive improvements in both the tutorials and the exercises. The exercises in particular have significantly more screen shots to assist new users in completing the tasks.
Intended Audience: New TntMPD users and those who may have used it for years but feel like they only use the basic features. This guide is designed for both self-study and for use in classroom settings. It's primarily designed to acquaint users with the variety of features that TntMPD offers, and was created in response to many requests for "more training".
This manual is divided into 12 segments, each covering a key feature of TntMPD. Each segment is followed by exercises designed to familiarize the reader with that segment's features. The exercises are completed with a sample database. All of the exercises are also compiled in a set at the end of the guide.
In a classroom session, each segment takes about 15 minutes to discuss followed by 15 minutes for the practical exercise. For those using the self-study, it should go a little more quickly.
The live training session and the manual are designed so that each segment could be read or used individually and not in order. The exercises, however, are sequential. Someone who wants to do the entire self-study course including the exercises needs to start in Session 1.
At the back of the guide, more than 50 TntMPD tips are compiled into one section.
