    Yi,

    It sort of depends on how you learn best, I think.  All the Ching books do an excellent job of graphically showing you concepts, so if that is something that helps you learn and understand them, by all means.  For me, I personally felt that Architect's Studio Companion covered structural systems very well, but, it doesn't get into the "engineering" aspects of structures (i.e. moment, shear, stresses, seismic, wind, etc.).  For that I used an old Ballast book. 

    I'm not certain if Ching gets into the engineering aspects - if so it might be a good resource.  I would say to you that you don't need ALL these resources.
