5.0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny..., 22 Oct. 2011
By 
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 bought this book because i have just started an MA in Publishing, and i needed to learn the basics of InDesign to create a piece for an assessment. This book is brilliant for beginners because it takes you through the steps very methodically, whilst not seeming too condescending at the same time. I would recommend this to anyone starting out with InDesign or anyone looking to re-fresh their skills. Even when i become more experienced with InDesign i will keep this book for reference, as most users of this program know, it is easy to forget even the simplest things. Great product, worth the money!

It doesn't take you through it step-by-the step, I'd call it taking you through it topic-by-topic in no particular order. Each step of theirs is huge and consists of tens of other steps with no expalanation offered as to how to do them. Also more complex concepts come before the easy ones (ie they teach you how to thread before even how to resize a frame or select text, or how to work with masters before you even know how to change font colour. There's no logic to their method, a lot of stuff is just ignored and goes unexplained. Paying over £20 for this is throwing money away, the book is completely useless and very confusing. The worst tutorial I've had for any application, and one of the most expensive ones. What a rip-off this book is.
