Hi All..

Brand new to the Logos world and just purchased the Gold package last night..

Been reading the Forums, Logos website and working with my Logos all day..

Started by taking the 29 training videos that come with the package and now on Video 15 and will finish the rest tonight and tomorrow..  So far they have been good and I am getting a lot out of them and already feeling pretty comfortable with Logos

Just wanted to ask what do you guys recommend next as far as training?  

Surprised there are no Logos training books..  I went to Amazon to search and there was none..

On the Logos website there is more(different?) training videos, a lot for Logos 5, but they state those would be good to do even for owners of Logos 6.. Would those videos be good or are the just a repeat of what I am already doing with the 29 I am taking now?

     I am only 1 day old but so far loving Logos..  Having been a long time eSword users, I wanted to take my Bible study and research to the next level and feel Logos will by my tool of choice the rest of my life as I study the wonderful Word of God...

Welcome Rodney, I highly recommend anything by Morris Proctor. Here are some things you can purchase in Logos: https://www.logos.com/products/search?q=proctor 

And this is his website where he offers free and paid training. http://mpseminars.com/blog/

While Morris Proctor is the official Logos trainer I use John Fallahee at http://www.learnlogos.com and his live webinars are free. You will become a Logos master able to do anything with the software by using John Fallahee.

In addition to Morris Proctor, you can find a free webinar every month at www.learnlogos.com. Also, you can download previous webinars for a small fee. John also offers training DVD's.

Edit: Posted at the same time as Matt.

Personally, I would recommend Learnlogos.com  by John Fallahee.  His videos/webinars are excellent and usually a bit cheaper than Morris Proctor.

I love Fallahee's stuff. He is very in depth and if I'm not mistaken used to be a Logos presenter.

I'd also add that you should find these forums a friendly and helpful place to ask questions. It's great to follow training videos (and that's the best start), but sooner or later you'll come across something that you want to do, and there's not a video on it. Or perhaps you understand the concepts from the videos, but you're not sure of the best way of applying that to your own studies. When that happens, just create a post on the forums with your question, and I'm sure you'll get some helpful answers.

I would also highly recommend using google to search rather than the native search within the forum.  Try this method from Bradley Grainger (Faithlife).

I would also highly recommend following the "Tip of the Day" posts compiled by MJ Smith. You can find details here.

Grace and Peace!

I use Fallahee's course and love it.

I also really appreciate Danny Zacharias' course on Udemy.com

  https://www.udemy.com/mastering-logos-bible-software/learn/

If you watch Udemy.com, you can often get the course on sale, but even at his full price, it is worth it.

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

Faithlife Corp. owes the MVPs free resources for life.
