    I am starting a new project where I will need to download an xml file(xmlparser) and store it in core data.

    I am not very familiar with core data thus, i'd appreciate it if anyone has any book to recommend .

    Pro core data iOS

    I found this one really valuable for core data beyond the basic introductions in BNR books.

    Why get a book while there are video's, there is a video on Core Data in the Stanford University IOS programming thingy's on iTunes. One of the lectures is on Core Data, including code etc.

    I also have Zarra's book and I agree it is pretty good. It is more Mac oriented but the knowledge is transferable to iOS.

    Apress also has a core data book that seems to get decent reviews.

    As for myself I have not had much success getting core data to work so I'm sticking with SQLite for now.

    Edit: OK, the book linked in an earlier post is the Apress book, so it was already mentioned. My bad.
