Format: Paperback
The book and accompanying CD comprise a 14 lesson tutorial. Whilst it isn't very in-depth, it nevertheless provides an excellent overview of the new, and very improved, version 5.0 of Acrobat. I learnt more from this "classroom" than I ever could have from simply ploughing through a manual. The only drawback to this book is that it isn't a great reference tool once you've got into using Acrobat and if you're really going to use Acrobat to the max then you should supplement it with one of the other Acrobat reference guides.

Acrobat 5 Review 3 Aug 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I just finished the last of the book's 14 lessons. I gave this book a four-star rating because some of the lessons keep using the same tools over-and-over again. It took me about 35 minutes to complete each lesson. If you follow all of the steps, you will have no trouble doing it on your own. Part of lesson 3, Adobe PageMaker is used only to save the exercise; but if you skip that part of the lesson, you still could continue to the end. On the whole, I think that all the lessons are easy to learn.

My first return. 7 May 2002
By David Sheppard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'd never returned a book before, but this one certainly deserved the extra milage. The book plodded along (maybe because of the classroom approach), but what finally convinced me to return it was Page 290, "Creating eBooks". After ONE page of self-evident information, the very last paragraph says, "For more information on designing and creating eBooks, See How to Create Adobe PDF files for eBooks ... available online ......." The problem of course is that a book that lists for [money] should furnish the information. But what got the book its second pair of walking legs is that the referenced book isn't available... Probably doesn't exist at all. Pick another one. You can spend your money better.

UGH!! 30 Oct 2002
By Janine Sutphen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
After plodding through many chapters of this book, I am totally exasperated. Not only was the book fraught with errors, but the information was, at best, inadequate. I am an indexer and a Mac user. You cannot create an index in OS X and that is not documented in the book. It is apparent that the authors, Adobe staff, never tested the instructions for the lessons on OS X. in addition, there are too many "check online for information about xxxx" references. If i wanted the information online, I would not have purchased a book. The waste of money is small compared to the waste of my time. One star is definitely a high rating for this book.

Adobe Acrobat 5.0 Classroom in A Book 21 Nov 2001
By Hugh Carson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am an Adobe Certified Expert in Acrobat 5.0 and an Instructor. Acrobat one of the most versatile programs ever developed. AA5CIB has helpful exercises for essentially any use of the program. If you can not attend a course taught by someone that works extensively with the product, this is the next best way to learn the product.

Excellent Tutorials 25 Aug 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn Acrobat 5. The tutorials are very complete and although some commands are repeated throughout the lessons, this just reinforces what was learned earlier in the lessons.
