This review is from: FreeHand 8 Authorized [With Cd Rom] (Paperback)
The 400 or so pages of this 'authorized' manual are utilized very well to spell out a basic foundation for the use of this program. The authors start out slow laying ground work for the more complicated lessons that follow. They are careful to explain background info and scenarios a typical user might find themselves in. While this book is a terrific starting point for anyone interested in learning this program, it really only covers about 1/2 of what you need to know. After reading it you will be prepared for doing lots of experimenting, but experiment you must in order to take your competence to the next level. I would like to have seen a little less repetition for the sake of clarity, and a little more information for the sake of completeness. Over all a very well written book, especially for a newcomer to Freehand.
