I have all 5 of the Card College Series...will I still find these following books useful?

1. Royal Road to Card Magic
2. Card Control - Arthur Buckley
3. Encyclopedia of Card Tricks
4. Expert Card Technique
5. Expert at the Card Table

You might find RRTCM a bit basic in terms of sleights taught if you have mastered the 5 Card College books. It does have some decent tricks though and is cheap.

What bout the other books?

Although all the books are cheap and pretty good, they are a bit old.
If you have learned all of the Card College stuff I think I would be aiming higher. - Marlo, or Jennings or any one of a number of young cutting edge card men.
( I know Marlo and Jennings are old themselves )

They are brilliant,even if you just buy them for the effects.Encyclopedia will give you great ideas for many tricks.RRTCM has many excellent tricks.
Enjoy

I just got Encyclopedia of Card Tricks and Expert at the Card Table, but I have not read it. I hope it'll be good.
