Yes, its still applicable they added more code, but the structure of the gml hasn't changed, i learned from that book
Just as the title says...is it still applicable to getting a good grasp on the software. I really enjoy working through structured courses and though picking up a book would help speed things up. Anyone's thoughts on this is welcomed.

But it will teach you the basics of coding in GML (best to learn with GM8.1 which is compatible with the book) then transfer your knowledge to GameMaker:studio.

My thoughts exactly, though I had my twin brother (who was always a step ahead of me in terms of GM knowledge) to aid me at times.
There's...a book? Well. I taught myself GM through trial an error..but I bet a book would have made my coding more...conventional. Haha
There are a bunch of nice tutorials online and the help contents GM has is brilliant.
Also, do a lot of prototyping; it'll do you good.
