I have the Home and Student version of the program and a lot of the topics and tutorials are doing things you can't do in this edition.
Great if you have the full version, not so great if you have the Home and Student edition.
However, having had experience of Draw 3, Draw 5, Draw 8, Draw 10, I an reasonably familiar with the Draw X6 GUI having only to concentrate on the changes and additions to the core / kernel of the originals.
This book is a massive disappointment. Do not be fooled by the nice colour cover - the book is black and white throughout which is appalling for a graphics book. The book spends an eternity telling you about how the thing works and what functions, in theory, do. It spends very little time showing you how to do things that you might actually want to do.
There are 'tutorials' - but again, you get one black and white photo of what the end product is meant to be and that is accompanied by vague instructions in how to do it.
I read this - or tried to - for about three days before throwing it in the bin in brand new condition as it was obvious that I would never refer to it again.
If you are anything other than a very experienced user then avoid this and spent time, not money, on using the many free youtube videos that you can access . These may be of differing qualities but cannot fail to teach more than this effort.
This is a thick book. It is packed with information - none of which you will use.
