5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book 25 Jan 2010
By R Welsh
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this, read through it, followed the tutorials and passed the certification. The tutorials are good quality, inspirational and "real world" useful. I'm getting a lot more out of iLife now and the certification looks good on my CV. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Update - apparently 17 July 2009
Format:Paperback
I hadn't owned my a Mac for long when this came out but I decided to update because I enjoy iPhoto and wanted to use the latest edition of iWeb for my new website. The packages do what they say and they are very easy to use, but I can't say that I'm taken aback by the 'changes'. Nothing so apparent to me yet that I would have bought it had I know the indifference between the versions.

It's a really good product if you don't have iLife already, but if you're just updating, take a really good look at the samples first to make sure you getting your money's worth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clear and straightforward guide to a quick start with iLife 7 April 2009
By John A. Suda - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
For home users, the Apple iLife set of productivity applications may be the most useful and elegantly designed suite on the market. The suite consists of photo, video, music making, DVD and Web page applications, which not only are separately worthwhile, but are integrated seamlessly.

While each application has Apple's well-known ease-of-use, some people like or need some guidance starting and completing home projects. That's where a book like "iLife 09" comes in handy. It is one of the books in the Apple Certified Training series and its four authors are experienced producers and communicators. The book has four parts with 17 lessons and a very good 18 page index. Each of the authors writes a part reflecting his/her relative strengths of experience, with Richard Harrington writing on both iWeb and iDVD.

The concept of the book is to provide hands-on, practical guidance to producing a project in very short order. The presentations are self-paced learning tools for results-oriented people. The projects include making an instant home movie, photo slideshows, podcasts, websites and blogs, and more. The parts share a common structure - a brief introduction to the specific program, how to open or import source material, how to create or edit material, and how to save, share, and publish. The preferred means of sharing is via Apple's own MobileMe system of Web services. I found the best lessons to be on creating iPhone ring tones and using "green screen" processes to create special effects with iMovie.

This book is not a comprehensive, systematic guide to the iLife applications. It is actually pretty sparse in its coverage of application features and power. It is meant primarily for casual users who want to create fairly simple (but worthwhile) projects in a short period of time. The book is well produced and laden with graphics, full-color photos and screenshots. The writing is straightforward and clear, but utilitarian. There are many "Tips" for readers dealing with either cautions, recommendations, or more advanced matters. It comes with a DVD of lesson material and source media.

5.0 out of 5 stars Apple Training Series: iLife 09 23 July 2010
By R. Ayers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am finding this book to be very informative and helpful learning how to get the most from the iLife 09 software. There is a DVD Lesson File included which contains all the picture and movie files you'll need to complete the lessons. The lessons are easy and fun to do and by using the lesson files you won't have to worry about damaging your pictures or movies. I have only completed the first two lessons but I have already learned so much more about this software than I ever knew before. This book is well worth the money.

3.0 out of 5 stars Training on Life '09 7 Jan 2010
By Nameless Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book is most helpful in giving you the tools to do most projects in the Life '09 suite. Because it covers such an expanse it cannot dig deeper and go into the detail you'll get with the "Missing Manual" series, which covers one program per book. On the plus side, this book comes with an interactive training CD that walks you through actual projects--which is most helpful. Overall, well worth the money.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for Training for test, not for in-depth instructions 9 Dec 2010
By Kitt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is primarily geared toward training for the Appple iLife test. It provides the basics of how to get around the applications, an overview of their capabilities and how to answer the test questions but if you are looking for a detailed guide to using each of the iLife applications this is not it, in particular because it covers so many applications in one book.

An aspect of the iLife suite that is at least demonstrated, if not gone into in depth is the integration among the applications which is something you might not get in a book that only covers one of them so that's a plus for this particular book.

This book does what it sets out to do and no more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent guide to iLife 14 Jun 2010
By Martin Robinson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I purchased this book to take me through my iLife Associate Certification, and I passed with flying colors.

The book comes with a DVD full of real world media (no studio photo shoots here), which you'll use to complete the exercises. The book is well laid out and it concisely explains every step. Even if you're new to iLife or even working with digital media, you'll quickly find yourself doing things you never thought you could. You'll also be surprised at how professional the results from Apple's consumer applications can look.

I really enjoyed working my way through the exercises, and though I've been using Macs for years, I learnt a lot. I know it's cliched to say the book makes learning fun, but it really does.

The book also includes a code for $20 off the cost of Apple's iLife Associate Certification exam, so if that's the route you're going, this is definitely the book for you.

Even if you're not doing any certifications though, you'll still learn a lot, and as such this book is highly recommended.
