Hi!

I'm new to Flat Assembler and trying to learn it. Very Happy I downloaded FASM manuals which are stored in .pdf format, but it was hard for me to study it with them because I never studied something on computer.
So.. I'm thinking about learning MASM with a book first and then learning FASM. Would learning MASM help learning FASM later?

Best Regards,
anstein99

I don't think so.
Buy a book for Intel Assembler and print the FASM pdf on paper if you don't like to read it on the screen. Also tutorials will help. Which OS you want to use for programming ?

I'm going to use Windows mainly, and sometimes KolibriOS.
Then - how's this book? http://www.amazon.com/Assembly-Language-x86-Processors-6th/dp/013602212X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1326671936&sr=8-1
Is that book suitable?

Partially.

Seems to be MASM.

I'd recommend FASM examples located at this forum and included with FASM, though.

Well, I never studied Assembly before, so I wonder if just looking at FASM examples will help. ^^

I dont know but very expencive, about EUR 120. Razz
I would use Google and search for x86 assembly introduction or x86 assembly tutorials. Have many standard tutorials there for beginners for free, you can use copy & paste source code. This will enable fast learning. Maybe Very Happy

If you have general questions regarding assembly language please use this forum:
http://www.daniweb.com/
There are many beginner questions - I think the users here at the board are maybe bored to answer totally beginner questions. Wink
