As many already know, the suite of Adobe products has a pretty intense learning curve. That is because there is so much each piece of software can do!I used several of the books from this series for college classes. They do not teach you to master the software, rather they teach you the basics and how to get started. You will become familiar with the tools, palettes, panels, etc.The format of the book is....each chapter introduces you to a tool or set of tools and maybe some panels or palettes. The chapter discusses the usefulness of whatever it is introducing. After the initial info, each chapter has a series of guided exercises that walk you through a project. Once completed, each chapter offers a few independent projects to give you more practice.These are not super in depth books, but they are helpful and a good place to start for some new to the software. You will not learn artistic skills or layout and design principles....you simply get a good introduction to the software. There is a lot to learn and to remember and I am great full to have these books on my shelf to refresh my forgetter when I have not used a technique for awhile.
A really good book. I used it for an online class and I have kept it even though the class ended. What I love is how the book is set up. It gives you an introduction to each segment of the program one chapter at a time. And in each chapter you get an overview and then you get a series of exercises with instructions to help you learn the program. It's set up in an easy to follow and understandway, and if you don't get something, you can just go back to a previous area. Make sure you use several bookmarks. I highly recommend this book
I ordered this book because it was the required textbook for an introductory In Design class I am taking at my local community college. However, I was so impressed with the way the author instructs, that I decided to to buy other books from the series to learn other Adobe programs on my own.I wished the book was longer, so that I could really learn ALL the features of In Design, since this book really only teaches the basics, and provides a deeper understanding for the beginning user. Still, It is a great book for those who would like to study on their own, but perhaps are fearful of taking classes, or who simply do not have the time or finances to take a college class.I HIGHLY recommend this book and others in this series to anybody wanting to learn some of the Adobe programs. As I said earlier, I enjoyed using this book so much, I bought another in the series to learn other programs.
This series is easy to follow and learn from. The learning materials provide opportunities to practice hands-on with the program. I am ready to move to the next book--Interactive InDesign publicationz
Yes, I said wretched. The book was purchased from the publisher, not because I was required to get their "Coursemate" and it was simpler to do it through them. I have used many books to learn the various Adobe programs, and this one is very confusing and although the website is supposed to give the added content for CC versions, it is sorely lacking. This was the required text for a class. The written and pictorial examples are difficult to follow and I find myself taking three times longer than I do with other books of this nature. If I was not required to do the exercises in this book for a grade, I would throw it away and use Adobe's site and all the great videos out there on YouTube and Lynda.com. Instead I am stuck with this horribly frustrating book that I dread opening every day. If I could give it negative stars, I would.
I really like the Revealed series. I've used the Flash, Photoshop, and Illustrator books also. If you find the assignments in the Classroom In A Book series to long, this is a wonderful alternative. The exercises are compact and straight to the point without being overwhelming.
I actually accidently ordered this one instead of Adobe Illustrator CS6 revealed. I opened it and fell in love with it anyway, I have In design and I dont even know how to use it, so this was a blessing in disquiese. Thank you so much for the fast service!
Trying to figure out the pricing. I think it's probably more expensive to "rent" the kindle version than the hardcover version just because the rental period is longer. I'm sure the book is great....
