I must be honest I have never read the manual for my Nikon D90, just flicked through the quick guide when I purchased my camera last June and read D90 for Dummies which helped me a lot.
On reading my manual for the first time, with my D90 at hand, to try all the settings and functions, I found it easier to understand the manual. There are a couple of areas that I will have to work through again and practice to get a better understanding of. It also helped having a photographer friend who has helped explain certain bits I was unsure of. Overall the manual is well worth reading.

Well my package from the OCA arrived yesterday, it was like having an early birthday present, I couldn't wait to get started on it. I decided to have a quick look at it yesterday and then start it today while it was quiet and the children were at school . I went through my check list to make sure it was all there, ticking them off one by one, the materials for the course were great and even included a notebook and a pen! Bonus, I can never ever find a pen in my house. I have spent a good couple hours reading the Student handbook and typing my student profile to send to my tutor. Overall a good start, considering I was up 'til 3am trying to set up this blog.
