If your using this book for a class get it, but Good luck, The old version and the new version of this book have important differences but you cant tell what they are because the ISBN number are the same!!
Also there is a missing appendix f. HA!
Not happy about the book!
If you are a beginner editor then you might not even see the errors.
OH and the Media that comes with the book is missing, ones that the book refers to, and the quality is poor.
A con is the typos. There are TONS of typos, hence the title of this review. They are not on every page but come on people. It is definitely not a deal breaker though.
I would 100% recommend this book. I will be probably read through it again before I move on to part 2 when it comes out in march. Another plus of this book is the way it introduces you to the shortcut keys. It does not throw all of them at you at once but instead offers them as you need them. Practice with them a couple of times and you will remember. Also, the flow of the book is excellent. I have really enjoyed working the projects and learning the software. Ms. Mary Plummer, the author, is extremely informative, organized, and even entertaining. My tip to you if you are just starting, spend extra time on the initial chapters to truly familiarize yourself with the interface. Another plus? The frikin price! 35 bucks? You betcha. Hope this helps. Make sure and step out of that editing bay every now and then and get some sunshine. I'll see ya in Hollywood.
