what school are you going to? If you want a good rigging book pick up Maya Character Creation by Chris Maraffi. I had this guy as an instructor and he's a really good teacher. We built a working amateur film rig with muscles, set driven keys, expressions, and a Mel coded UI in 4 weeks. While the book is Maya based you'll be able to take the theory behind it and apply it to Max. It also has to NURBs modeling stuff in the begining but if you're rigging you probably know how to model already. The price is 45 dollars.
BTW I'm going to Full Sail in Orlando. While it's not known for the quality of art it's students produce it is an extremely good school to learn the tools of the trade and the technology and theory that drives the art. They leave it up to the students to work at the art side (which is why lazy graduates who didn't work in school and cant find a job because of it complain and give the school a bad rep).
