2.0 out of 5 stars Extremely light weight 7 Feb 2008
By Annebythegate VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
I bought this guide because the others in this series have been effective.

This guide, however, is for the complete computing novice who needs help to open a document and some serious hand holding. It doesn't address Acrobat Connect at all and is very lightweight on form creation and distribution whilst being hot on how to customize the desk top and listing every feature of every menu.

If you're familiar with any CS3 products then the majority of this book is redundant. On the whole I'm really disappointed and wish I'd bought something else.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy read 16 Sep 2007
By Edward Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Going from Acrobat 6 Pro to Acrobat 8 was much easier with this book. I have bought books from Peachpit press before and their structure is easy to follow. Even for just looking up what you need, it is easy to get it then get out. I would recommend this book to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars As Good As It Gets 5 Oct 2007
By P. Wallace - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My instructor recommended the Quick Start series as the best option, and she is right. I find the Adobe Acrobat 8 Quick Start guide to be every bit as comprehensive as the manufacturer's user guides. If you can hold back and wait for the Illustrator CS3 Quick Start guide, which will not be available until next month, I recommend that you do. I had to buy Real World Illustrator CS3 Industrial Strength Production Techniques, because I had a project immediately due, and find that while the guide is beautifully produced with many color pages, its size is unwieldy. The Quick Start series gives you everything you need to learn the basics and more in a compact format.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good for the Beginner but not so Good for Anyone Over and Above that 11 Jan 2013
By Yoda - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The subtitle of this book, "Learn Acrobat the Quick and Easy Way", is correct. For anyone with no or almost no knowledge of this software package this book provides a very good but basic introduction to the features of the program. The book provides a very good introduction to how to perform basic functions such as editing, converting to and from various formats, etc. as well as some intermediary level activities such as creating "slideshow" style presentations. In addition, the book can serve as a good and quick reference for beginners as it can quickly show how to perform a function that may have been forgotten. All and all a four star book for the beginner.

However, for anyone over and above that stage the book's value is very limited. For one, the book is quite rudimentary. The overwhelming majority of what is discussed in the book is something that anyone using Acrobat 8, at a significant level on a daily basis, would know. Plus, as its reference value for such an audience is limited, it would not have too much value. Hence for this audience this book would have a one value (or at the very most two).
4.0 out of 5 stars Good start for version 8 21 April 2008
By Richard R. Green - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Excellent beginner to intermediate level user of Acrobat adapting to version 8 Standard. Sets up good groundwork for understanding version 8 Professional and LiveCycle Designer. Adobe is probably going to be the premier documentation program in the coming years due to its versatility and interactive features; if you haven't already done so, I would recommend getting a background in it using this book.
