Unity 5 from Zero to Proficiency is a series of Unity tutorial books specially written for absolute game developing beginners. This step-by-step and easy-to-understand, easy-to-follow series of handbooks for Unity 5 can take readers from game developing yearners who know nothing about Unity (even the game programming itself) to a professional game developer with good level of proficiency to Unity.

This series consists of 4 books, they are respectively Unity 5 From Zero to Proficiency (Foundations), Unity 5 From Zero to Proficiency (Beginner), Unity 5 From Zero to Proficiency (Intermediate),
Unity 5 From Zero to Proficiency (Advanced). Though, it’s a pity that, AppNee can only get you the first 3 ones (in PDF, EPUB, MOBI, AZW3 formats) now. Anyway, I think that’s enough for any Unity beginners.

The last thing to say is, Unity 5 from Zero to Proficiency series of books are appropriate for both game developing amateurs and people who hope to engage in game development jobs using Unity in the future, including any Unity training schools or institutions.
