Hello, I am a newbie trying to learn ASM x86 with FASM, and I was wondering a few things: I have been searching online for books on asm, but I can only seem to find books that teach with MASM... Is it okay to learn from these books even though they use MASM synatax?(Specifically, this one http://www.amazon.com/Introduction-Assembly-Language-Computer-Architecture/dp/0763717738) I try my best to convert the examples to FASM syntax, but it's not always easy, haha! Do you guys know any resources for learning? (I've looked at the tutorials in the sticky)

Well, the instructions are the same. You can learn assembly from every book, regardless of the compiler used for the examples.
On the other hand, the only proper way to learn assembly (and any other programming language) is to read others sources and to write your own programs.
There are many examples in the FASM packages.
Also, you have to read carefully FASM programmer's manual.
Also, look at examples page.
Of course you can always ask on the forum and will probably get some help - the FASM community is one of the best. Smile

NO because the syntax is different and none of the examples will work.

Look into the built-in examples, examples page and examples in this forum.

Though it uses NASM + libc, but still (IMHO) better ("easier"??) than MASM-y or whatnot.
