Really it's a combination of self-discovery of the other ways. I use the product (or do the job). I read books, magazines and Web articles/tutorials to learn more. I read and participate in forums. But it's a self-lead search.

Looks like a " all of the above " option might be needed heh.

nothing like the unedited stream of consciousness of one of your contemporaries. it's a big help when they can actually show you something as well as tell you it. (like a live magazine tutorial i guess)...

Self discovery is very vital to how I learn and is often how I come to master a program or technique, with other methods also playing a role. However I also have to say that I find discussion with pros to be the ultimate learning experience, *especially* when doing so in person. There's just something about discussing the philosophies and concepts and such with experts and picking their brains.

Self discovery is defiinately the way to go. Pushing buttons and trying things to find out what happens is fun, and it gives you a knowledge of things you might not neccesarily find in tutorials. (the 'Help' function in most software also aids me)
I do sometimes refer to magazine tutorials such as 'Computer Arts' but very rarely look at video tutorials.
