The XSK-95 kit is a one-stop solution for getting started with CPLD-based design.  The kit includes the Xilinx Student Edition Foundation 2.1i software that lets you enter, compile, and simulate logic designs for Xilinx FPGAs and CPLDs.  Then the logic circuits can be downloaded into the XS95-108 Board and tested in the real world.

Prentice Hall has stopped including The Practical Xilinx Designer Lab Book in the Xilinx Student Edition 2.1i.  This lowers the price, but eliminates the extensive tutorial on the Foundation software with many worked examples.  To make up for this shortcoming, XESS Corp. is publishing the Pragmatic Logic Design text on its web site.
