I highly recommend visiting http://www.moock.org/asdg/home.html
and clicking the samples link. This is Collin Moock's site who put out a book called the Difinitive Guide to Actionscripting and I think its da bomb. His coding is sooo clean and simple.
Flashkit.com is the #1 pick for flash forums and help/tutorial stuff. Very active site and alot of keen designers willing to help.
Best of Luck!
