5.0 out of 5 stars really helpful, easy to follow and fun, 27 Dec. 2012

This review is from: Adobe InDesign CS5 Classroom in a Book: The Official Training Workbook from Adobe Systems (Classroom in a Book (Adobe)) (Paperback)
I'm really excited about this InDesign introduction book. You learn from the beginning how to use the software, but it's not too simplified but from the very beginning interesting even if you already had experiences with layout programs before like me. The chapters are build like class sessions, very well explained (but as said: not simplified, it's really on the right level) and the tasks are reasonable, not only easy to follow but it is even fun to learn. Each chapter gives the time needed to do it (between 45 and 90 minutes),these times are realistic. I learned what I needed to know. A disadvantage is that the American measures are given (pica, inch, not mm or cm) but my InDesign could work with these American measurements most of the time. It's not a book to just look things up (but it has an index to do so) but it guides you to use InDesign confidently in a didactically very well done way. Really useful and helpful. I made me confident to use InDesign after not having used it before.
