I have been using this book for a few weeks now,and whilst I find it very helpful with some editing tips i must say that it does assume that you are quite familiar with previous versions, I upgraded from CS2 to CS6 and not being professionally trained on any version of photoshop find the exercises harder to follow because they assume you have done similar editing exercises before, So to sum up, this book is well written and well laid out but is for the more experienced photoshop user not a novice.

I already had an electronic copy of Photoshop CS5 Digital Classroom so was a bit concerned that the CS6 version would be a re-hash of this, but no, the authors have completely rewritten the CS6 version. New pictures are included and all the new tools are explained, both in the videos and the text.
The videos are excellent and are narrated by an american lady who manages not to put you to sleep as some video narrators do! They are about 15 minutes long and very detailed. I recommend you copy them from the DVD to your PC/Mac first then watch them before attempting the book - both PC and Mac keystrokes are given in the video and book so it doesn't matter whether you are Microsoft or Apple.
The book itself is well laid out with sufficient pictures so that you can check your progress against the book picture. One slight puzzle is that when you watch the video for lesson 1 the narrator suggests that if you are a complete beginner you should watch and read chapter two! Erm, would it not be better to swap the chapters around and say if you are not a complete beginner go to chapter two?!
Apart from that its a great beginners guide to Photoshop CS6 - buy it!

In spite of the cover blurb saying "tutorials and lesson files on companion DVD'' there is now no longer one included. Instead users must download the lesson files from Wiley's website. However, the videos cannot be downloaded and must be watched online. This could be impossible or very difficult for those who do not have a fast broadband connection. I would have thought that Wiley should have made this clear on the cover and in the book.

This book starts at the beginning and explains why things are done. Even though one fells confident to ignore the beginning it is better to get to know the layout and what is on offer inside the book

Having just upgraded to CS6 I was looking for a training book and found this
one at Amazon. Been using it for a few weeks now and enjoying the lessons
from book and video clips.
