Having never dealt with any of the Coreldraw versions I wanted a book that would assist me in grasping the fundamentals so that I could design a web-site from scratch. While I was waiting for the order to arrive I took the Dummy guide out of the local library and found myself flipping vast numbers of pages at a time. The Dummy guides obviously serve a certain reader but I felt that the Sams guide was not afraid to push you harder from the very start which suited my approach. I am a seasoned Powerpoint user and I would recommend this guide to those users who already know the basics such as toolbars, drag and dropping and arn't afraid to trip up on their efforts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book - better than taking a class 9 April 2001
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I really enjoyed this book. I already knew the concepts of desktop publishing, but was new to CorelDRAW and needed something that would get me up and running quickly. Each chapter of the book showed me what the program could do and then told me how to do it. I liked the web-links to see some finished projects in color.
Also, I had a question about how to pronounce something in the book and e-mailed the author. He e-mailed me back with the answer right away.
I am very impressed with this book and with the author. I highly recommend "Sam's Teach Yourself CorelDRAW 9 in 24 Hours" by David Karlins.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Book 2 Dec 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I haven`t read the book. But I think it has a good layout.(I have a friend who has bought the book for CDraw Ver 8,He says it`s very easy to follow.)I think this newer version has the same approuch if not better.
3.0 out of 5 stars a good book but not good for a beginner 29 Dec 1999
By dakun Xu - Published on Amazon.com
Normally, a marked as 24 hours course book should be easy to follow with and easy to learn from. However, Mr.Karlins tried to cover almost everything of Corel Draw 9 in this book, which causes a lot of confusion for the beginner reader.
