I've seen lots of Flash tutorials and some are better than others.

A few of those I like best are:

Boston University:

Screatoris.net - cheesy homepage but an excellent overview of Flash driven site design from concept to implementation:

click here

The Excellent Flash Kit site - a vast source of information and tutorials; some easy, some very, very advanced and quite a few that fall between the two:

I'd be wrong not to include a link to the Macromedia site - they have their own sample files and tutorials:

Webthang have some good tutorials:

Simple but nice intro to very basic Flash from DevX:

And the excellent Webmonkey site has tutorials on just about all things web related, including some useful articles on Flash:

There are countless sites that offer Flash tutorials but those I've listed above are a few of my favourites to point newcomers to.

Don't overlook the sample files included with Flash and the supporting helpfiles. Between them they walk you through all the basics needed to do pretty much everything you might ever want to with Flash.

Flash has about the steepest learning curve of any web related software that I know of, so don't get too discouraged if things seem to be going slowly. If it all seems complicated that's because it is and make absolutely sure that you understand everything you do in any of the tutorials before moving onto the next stage. Glossing over things and winging it just doesn't work when it comes to Flash.

There are some other sites I could mention but the above cover most of the bases and are written, for the most part, in an easygoing manner with lots of screenshots to help you along.

Good luck

a little less academic but it may prove useful, ( and inspirational).
