Default good book?

I'm kind of new to Maya and I'm wondering if anyone has a good project based book that they can recommend? Looking for something similar to "Learning Maya" (the one Alias sends with the product) but with more projects and slowly getting into more advanced features...

Thanks

Maya FUndamentals, I think the 5.0 version is out. Thats a good book.

Or Exploring Maya, Ive got the version 4 book, I dont know if there is a later one.

Both those books are very good.

Maya Fundamentals 4.5 is the best book i've got. Here's the final main project.

EDIT:

Cyuck attached the 1+MB avi for the finished movie for Maya Fundamentals. Please visit: http://www.mayafundamentals.com/, instead.


There are copyright issues involved so there for we cannot attach the file directly.

thx Kevin

I'll also recommend Maya Fundamentals. It's a great book that eases you into Maya through a good variety of projects. Almost all of my students use this book when they're learning Maya.
