The Card College series is just quite simply a Must Have for any Card Magician, perhaps simply any Magician.4 of 4 magicians found this helpful.
The Books are very detailed, very clear, with many clear illustrations to help you work through the slights step by step.
The format for each Chapter is basically, Part A Here are a variety of ways to perform a technique, Part B Here are some Tricks that use this Technique.
You can't go wrong with this series.

Hi. This is your official PenguinMagic reviewer, B_Magic!3 of 4 magicians found this helpful.
The Card College series is similar to books like "Modern Coin Magic" for coin workers, or "Royal Road to Card Magic" or "Expert Card Technique" for card guys...it's a MUST HAVE. The book is a staple in card magic that will not only give you a fantastic start into card magic, but will give you an excellent source of sleights and effects for years and years to come.
I bought the Card College series years ago, and even after making a successful living in magic for over a decade now I still benefit from the books. Everytime I flip through the books I find something new, or something I'd forgotten, or something that I'm now ready for that I wasn't before.
You simply must get these books. If you are even reading any reviews on these books just add them to card now. It's well worth it.

A wonderful, wonderful book. I've been doing card magic for about three years and I'm so angry I didn't get the card college series before now! I thought I'd just buy the first book even though I most likely knew most of it content already.3 of 4 magicians found this helpful.
And yes, I have I had touched in most of the sleights before, BUT! On almost every sleight I got lots of tips and I have developed new handling that has improved the smoothness.
The book is extremely clear, well written and is neatly illustrated. I wished everyone who wanted to become a good card magician would start with this book.
And for those of you who think you're good enough for it: You most likely aren't.

Just what you would expect Report this review

I have not finished reading this yet, but I am almost to the halfway point. I gave this 5 stars because it is just what you expect, good and it cannot be better considering 4 plus more volumes. It is teaching the basics in great detail. (I proboly have no idea what the basics are, for I have one had a course in the keycard, marking your own cards and ya. It is also inspiring, for it inspired me to get more magic books.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
I am only 12 years of age, but I have not gotten anything in this book that I cant do. Overall, a FANTASTIC BOOK SOFAR. I wouldnt have gotten it if I hadnt got it for christmas, but if volume 2 was 50 dollars, than I would still get it. Awesome book!

This is a card-worker's bible. Don't hesitate to add every volume to your cart and get started on the road to card mastery.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
Don't even think about the price, it's an investment in your art, and it's well worth it.
Effective Learning Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 27th, 2011
The "Card College" series of books and dvds are a very effective and efficent way of learning the art of card magic. Roberto presents the lessons in a clear and concise manner and explains in depth all the various nuances of each move and sleight. I highly recommend this series, especially for anyone who has a desire to become a great cardician.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
Good Book Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 10th, 2010
Card College Volume 1 is a great book for people who are just starting out in magic. In this book you will learn a ton of moves that will be crucial to your career in magic. In this book you will learn many important moves such as shuffles, cuts, forces, and many flourishes. This book is crammed full of material and it will take you quite a while to get through all of the stuff making it well worth the money.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.

This has helped me so much in developing an asernal of card magic. Even by reading Giobbi's descriptions of sleights I already knew, I improved them. So yes, read the whole book! It is all gold material! Cannot find a more clearer and incredibly well structured book on card magic (expect maybe the next 4 volumes :P)1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
