1.0 out of 5 stars Buyer beware 14 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you purchase this book you will find it identical page for page with Brilliant Illustrator CS6 by the same author.
Don't, like me, be fooled by thinking that a different title equates to different content. In other worlds this might be called sharp practice.If considering purchasing be guided by price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Any tips in a book to speed up your work flow is valuable 3 Oct 2012
By Michael A. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have been using Adobe Illustrator since 1995, but I haven't used this great program as much as I could. Why, you ask? Maybe, I just needed some inspiration and more ideas on how to use it most efficiently. I now have that great inspiration: Adobe Illustrator CS6 On Demand by Steven Johnson, and this book is the best I have bought over the years on Illustrator.

Being a professional designer for over 40 years, i love the way the book is design and organized. The contents of the book are simple to complex tasks to perform with real world examples. Every page is in color that begins with simple task introduction and simple numbered step-by-step instructions with screen illustrations. You can access additional resources on the book's Web site. I found the chapters on "Designing for the Web and Devices" and "Working Together with Adobe Programs," especially working with Bridge and Adobe Media Encoder, very beneficial. I highly recommend this book to the beginning Illustrator user and the seasoned professional.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not CS6 16 Jun 2012
By Chaya - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Illustrations in this book are recycled from CS-something before 6. While it did have some things I didn't know before (which is why I gave it any stars at all), do not buy this book until it really represents the current version

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasure in Utilizing "Adobe CS6 Illustrator on Demand" for a beginning CS-6 version of Illustrator at a local community college 27 Feb 2013
By Stephen W. Mik - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Things I like: the fast delivery to my home address. The wonderfully colored illustrations showing Illustrator Screen Shots and the Step-by Step instructions of each Illustrator Topic. The Index of topics at the back-always helpful when learning a new subject.The "Did You Know?" features throughout the book which enhanced each topic in detail.
Things I didn't like: It would have been nice to have a Glossary of items discussed in the book,always useful for a new technical subject with all of its' jargon. I also would have liked a more durable,hard cover so the book would last longer. I would have been willing to pay more for a book with accompanying CD or DVD containing extra material or Step-by-Step Illustrator for beginners' Lessons.
NOTE: I am a brand-new beginner to Adobe Illustrator CS-6 and the learning curve is STEEP! I am already falling behind in week 7 of a 16 week course;the dreaded Midterm Exam is coming up and I'll wait to then to see if I am passing the course or may have to drop.

2.0 out of 5 stars Beginners Beware! 26 Oct 2012
By Confused - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
O.k. let me start out with...I am a complete beginner. The last time I picked up illustrator was for a class in college, how many years ago? I don't even remember. But this book is CONFUSING. As a beginner it's necessary that each step be outlined. For the most part, the exercises are straight forward, but many of them are missing important -very-small- steps that make all the difference to the success of whatever you're trying to do. I had to watch multiple you-tube videos and search the web CONSTANTLY to find out what I was doing wrong.

Also, there are some parts of the book that seem to take for granted you know what they're talking about. The information may be basic and obvious knowledge to people who have worked with ADOBE, or use the computer for art more regularly, but I don't, and got lost and flustered.

I guess my final verdict is that I don't think it's very well written. At least for beginners who need a bit more hand-holding, like myself, until they can get the general gist of it. Also found a few grammatical errors.
