bokmål and nynorsk ?

I understand the difference between bokmål and nynorsk - but I realized that some of the Norwegian study guides/books I bought are teaching bokmål. Will that make it harder to learn nynorsk?

For learning: Norwegian

    That was a difficult question... I believe it is wise to learn either bokmål or nynorsk properly first, and then use that as a basis for learning the other written language. You might get a bit confused mixing them. But then again - why learn both? Most Norwegians speak a mixture anyway...
