Different people learn in different ways. It's whatever suits you best that matters (plus the quality of the books/tutorials of course).

I prefer books, because I can study in anywhere. But you can use two.
The book have one line of study best that tuts in my opinion.

I recommend for my friend here in Brazil, the use book.

But actual hands-on experience is essential to learning. Otherwise you'll just forget all you just read.

I would say videos. You actually get to see how to do it.

Pick whichever (video or book) that you think works best for you.

And then write a lot of code. Nothing beats writing code and seeing what happens.

And more importantly -- write code that fails, and figure out why it fails, and how to fix it. Ask questions when you can't figure it out - we're here to help nudge you along until you get that moment of understanding.

You can memorize the book or have perfect recall of the video, but until you write some code and find out why it does or doesn't do what you want, you won't be a Real Programmer[tm].
