    Here are a couple of suggestions: try Barnes and Noble or Borders.com and look for a book called "Making 3d Games" or something like that. I read it one time while I was there, and it helped a lot. Also, look at cliffy b's website (not the one on PU) for some mapping "commandments" to keep in mind when building a map. However, without a doubt the best thing to do is PRACTICE, PRACTICE, and PRACTICE more...oh yeah, and read lots of reviews at Nalicity; they tell you what not to do! Good luck.

    In my opinion, dont bother finding books on making games. Just find all the tutorials you need on the web to get started. Try out this site: http://www.game-edit.com/tutorials/Unreal/ , surely you´ll find something there. And just like rmcollins3 said, just PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE and PRACTICE, and you´ll be satisfied with the results. Good Luck :)

    PRACTICE :)

    The time you spend reading books (or with any other vulgar pass-time like dating girls or making sport ,etc...) you could put it to good use by experimenting with unrealed.
