Good for an Illustrator novice,
This review is from: Adobe Illustrator CS5 Classroom in a Book: Classroom in a Book : the Official Training Workbook from Adobe Systems (Classroom in a Book (Adobe)) (Paperback)
I'd used Adobe Photoshop for some time, but needed to migrate to Illustrator which more suited the type of work I was dealing with.
This book was the first I bought, and I can recommend it to anyone trying to delve into Illustrator CS5 for the first time. It delivers excellent step-by-step instructions on all the major subject areas, and offers just enough details to get over the initial hurdle of learning such a huge product without boring the pants of you.
Overall very good for a beginner, not so good for someone who's already used Illustrator in a previous guise. It gives a great foundation on which to build your Illustrator knowledge.
