Product Description

From the Back Cover

Classroom in a Book, the world's best-selling series of hands-on software training workbooks, just got better. Classroom in a Book offers what no other book or training program does-hands-on training materials developed by the software training experts at Adobe Systems, and then tested and refined in Adobe's own classrooms and labs. Classroom in a Book covers a wide range of features, tools, and techniques of Adobe PageMaker 6.5 or later. Even if you are familiar with Adobe PageMaker, take the time to review all the lessons-you'll be surprised by how much you learn! If you are a novice, work with each lesson as many times as you want, and then move on to the next lesson. By the end of the book, you'll know After Effects like a pro!

Adobe produces brilliant sotware... and is equally famous for turgid manuals! Until I bought this book, I just could not get into PageMaker. However within a few hours of 'Classroom' instruction I really got the hang of it.
The tutorials are interesting and easy to follow. If you have Adobe Pagemaker 6.5 and found yourself at a loss as to what to do once you had completed the brief tutorials that come in the software manual, this is the book for you!

Learn PM by Actually Doing, Not by Reading Boring Garbage 29 Jan. 2000
By MDC - Published on
Format: Paperback
In this book, the acual Adobe team teaches you how to use the powerful program, Pagemaker. You really retain what they teach you because you yourself are doing the projects. You learn in the context of the lesson. You learn the basics, like text editing, and move up to trapping and other cool stuff. I am only a high school student laying out his school's newspaper on PageMaker, and though I knew a little PageMaker, this book really shows you information even an advanced graphical designer would not know.
GOOD WORK, ADOBE! Now if only I could say that about InDesign... never mind!

Adobe PageMaker Classrom in a book 6.5 29 April 2000
By MM - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had never used PageMaker or any software like it and this book made me very comfortable with basic PageMaker features. I had trouble using the fonts included on the book's CD and wished for troubleshooting information about that but otherwise I had no trouble with the lessons.

The BEST way to learn Pagemaker quickly!!! 23 Aug. 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I am an advanced Pagemaker designer and I recently was assigned to train coworkers in its usage. I was able to teach them with the help of this book in two days!! I wish I had learned from this book -- it would have saved many, many hours of my time.

Excellent "how-to" tutorial for PageMaker 6.5 Plus 13 Jun. 2001
By Jim M. Henderson - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a newbie to the wonderful world of desktop publishing and was charged with the task of putting together the newsletter for my state professional organization. The graphics arts department at my local printer wanted me to use Pagemaker Plus 6.5, since that is the software they use. This single book gave me the information I needed to do the complete newsletter.
In a number of one hour lessons, the Adobe team literally walks you through each step in putting together quality print projects. The book's learning style is "learn by doing." In each lesson, when you get to a step that introduces a new concept, there is some instructional text. Otherwise, you move rapidly, step-by-step, to create a real-life print project.
Furthermore, all of the clip-art, text, and fonts are on the CD-ROM that is included with the book.
I was so impressed with this book, I purchased the Adobe Press book entitled, "Adobe PhotoShop 6.0 Classroom in a Book." I also found it to be excellent. Both of these software titles are particularly difficult to just open and go, like so many of the Microsoft titles are. A book like this one is a MUST for anyone with a windows background who needs to learn these titles.
Happy Reading!

A Must - Have 13 Aug. 1998
By - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book taught me the program, period. After reading it, I knew everything I needed to know to feel confident and explore the program creatively. I lent the book to several friends and they became proficient with the program, too. This book is more than a "how-to"'s a professional course in graphic design. Anyone starting out with Pagemaker should buy this book before they even install the program!
