With the Classroom in a Book, not only do you get the book to refer to as and when you need to, but also you have the CD to work with. The tutorials are easy to follow and the samples on the CD give you a head start. Illustrator is, at last, starting to make sense!

I'm going throught this book now, and though extremely useful, there are still irritating differences here and there between Illustrator 10 and the version discussed in the book - which seems to lag behind in version 9 or 8 in places - eg there are now NO boxes in the top right corner of the palettes, unlike in the diagrams. But so far these have only been minor things.
It's worth buying this along with the Visual Quickstart Guide.

This book is brilliant, it's easy and fun to use and I've had great fun working through it. I still have to refer back to it sometimes and it's not so good for that but as a teaching tool you can't do better!

More helpful if less errors 10 Jun. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I've used Class Room in a Book series before but with better success. Unfortunately, I would have rated this Illustrator 10 book higher if not for the critical errors and omissions in the book and included CD which caused many waisted hours. The first pages inacurately describe where the AICIB file is located and what special steps are needed to make a search of the file possible. Also several instances of incorrect instructions such as on page 196 step 3 indicating to in error choose File when they meant Edit or the complete omission of practice file in lesson 10 CD. But most disturbing is the omission of a clear easy way to find a "corrections" link that lets book purchasers find important corrected information and get the files that were not included. The book doesn't do that and the subsequent adobe site doesn't adequately address these concerns from AI 10 Classroom in a Book readers. A user friendly approach needs to be applied to help readers accomplish their learning goals. So instead of 5 stars I'll have to rate it a 2 star product until those concerns are better addressed.

Best beginners supplement to product manual 24 Oct. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Although I had a lot of experience with CAD programs, I struggled with Illustrator 8. I finally upgraded to v. 10 and bought Classroom In a Book for that version. You CAN teach yourself Illustrator with the manual and this book in a few weeks. ICIAB is a good supplement to the manual, which for reasons that always baffled me, has too few illustrations for information aimed at visually oriented people.
You will have to do some experimentation to get full benefit from the lessons, but I picked up things I was clueless on before. It does help to have some additional book such as Visual series (PeachPit Press) for details not covered.
Downside: some errors of tools or keys, nothing serious. But I was disappointed by two topics; the web chapter separately covers making a Flash animation for the web, and slicing a graphic for the web, but while the "finished" version of the lesson shows both in a complete web page, the lesson doesn't tell you how to put them together without the Adobe Web program (too expensive for me). You have put both html files in a text editor and combine them using the complete example for reference as to where to put the Flash file and what to include or leave out.
Also, the section in lesson 6 on data/variable objects is applied in a page of business cards, but doesn't explain how to get the data base and variable fields applied to all incidences of the biz cards on the sheet. I did figure it out for myself, but it took me about an hour of experiment, and is almost as tedious as just editing the file, though once the database is set up it would be quick to print out new cards with the variations.
But overall, a really good way to learn Illustrator to an intermediate level, and a whole lot cheaper than any class I've looked into (plus classes tend to be taught on MACs in my area).

Just the right book to start with. 11 April 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Before studying this book I was somewhat familiar with Illustrator 9, but I wanted to take more hands-on lessons by actually creating something with the little knowledge I had.
This book is a wonderful starting point to learn Illustrator 10 with its easy-to-follow lessons, and helpful/useful tips that are found on pretty much every page of the book, and even if you're an experienced Illustrator user you'll find great tips on this book.
I own both 'Classroom in a book' and 'Visual quickstart by Peachpit Press' and I recommend the people who are new to Illustrator purchase the Quickstart book to use as a reference book, and this 'Classroom' book as a workbook.
Trust me you won't regret. :-)

Tutorial style book for creating illustrations, artwork, etc 5 Oct. 2003
By Harinath Thummalapalli - Published on Amazon.com
After first determining why I needed Illustrator when I already had Photoshop, I picked up this book because of my positive experience with another book from this Classroom in a Book series (Photoshop 7.0). And this book does not disappoint in the least bit either.
It follows a tutorial style approach to teaching how to use Illustrator (both Mac and Windows versions). The book is mostly black and white with all the relevant color pictures tucked between lesson 12 and 13. It hasn't caused me any problems as I follow along on the computer as I read the book (I have a color monitor).
In 15 lessons, this book does an excellent job of teaching you how to use Illustrator 10 without having to be in a classroom. All lesson files are on the CD-ROM that comes with the book. The book starts off with explaining how to use the Work Area and builds from the basic to the more complex topics. The basic topics of creating shapes, painting, drawing, working with brushes are followed by the more difficult topics of transforming objects, working with type, blending shapes and colors, etc.
Even though the two programs Photoshop and Illustrator are coming closer with each new version, the main differences between them are to do with whether you want to start with an existing photo and modify it for print & web or you want to start from scratch and create illustrations and artwork for print & web. I am oversimplifying here but this explanation helps me keep the differences between these two programs straight in my head.
The technological differences are that Photoshop uses bitmaps to represent images and Illustrator uses vectors (and complex mathematical equations) to represent the images. Of course, you don't need to bother with this part as it is irrelevant to using the tools effectively.
I use both Photoshop and Illustrator for basic web design but mostly stay with Photoshop. The reason for this is that I am a photographer and have never been good at artwork so I use Illustrator mostly as a hobby to improve my creativity in this area. It has been a lot of fun for me and I hope the same for you! Have fun learning to use this amazing and cool tool! And don't forget to check out Adobe's website for their latest release of Adobe CS (Creative Suite) that includes the next version of Illustrator after Illustrator 10.

Good book - if only it came with a box of Artistic Talent? 13 Feb. 2003
By Thomas Hochmann - Published on Amazon.com
This is an excellent book for learning how to use the powerful tools and features in Illustrator. However, don't expect to find any artistic theory or design tips in this book. This is strictly a point-A-to-point-B instructional book that presents (relatively) enjoyable exercises to learn your way around, and not an ounce more.
The author accomplishes the task of training you in the use of Illustrator. But just as a book on Microsoft Word will not make you a good writer, don't expect this book to make you a graphic design guru. :)
