No, Syntax Searches are not part of the training. They would require a couple of hours only about them to do them justice, and frankly I've found they are rarely needed nowadays. Almost all of the most typical syntax related searches can already be done using dataset searching, and it seems that every few releases a new dataset appears that allows a standard search for yet another scenario where one might need to delve into a syntax search.

Have enjoyed the videos greatly so far.  What is the difference between the old INTERSECT and the new INTERSECTS?

would it be possible to get a PDF document showing the different search strings?

Mike,

It's not a PDF file, but does this help?

Fr Devin Roza:
So far, Faithlife has decided to not include scripts for training videos. Hopefully we can work something out, but for the moment it's not clear that's going to happen. 

A complementary Logos resource that has searches shown in Advanced Search Training plus links to open search in Logos and Verbum would be awesome. Script explaining the search would be appreciated.

My Favorites has a Search Examples folder with many saved searches, which are useful for a starting point when looking for something similar. My Search Examples are an advanced set of Search CookBook. Hence, an advanced search resource with clickable search links would be awesome.

I think it would be great to have a readable resource of examples!

Can search example links be shared as a part of a personal book, if FL won't offer such a resource?

1. Get a person to volunteer to copy the examples from one chapter.

2. Get someone to collate the examples and create the links.

3. Release as a .docx file for creating personal books.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Yes, alternative idea is a Faithlife group that can discuss Advanced Sharing plus Notes (with search tips) and Visual Filters.

Are these dataset searches covered in your videos?
