Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

As with each entry in the Classroom in a Book series, this one is used as part of Adobe's official training and certification program. Adobe PageMaker 7.0 Classroom in a Book (With CD-ROM) offers practical, step-by-step, timed lessons covering all of Pagemaker's features and tools and ensures that readers master the application. In addition, it provides clear explanations on how and why things work the way they do and supplies elegantly professional artwork on which to practice.

Each lesson is well organized, from the opening rundown of what will be covered to the final chapter review, complete with quiz questions (and answers). Projects are the sort of practical challenges that most desktop publishers face today: flyer, letterhead, project proposal, CD jewel-case booklet, brochure, print and Web-based newsletters, color catalog, and more. You learn how to work with master pages, styles, and inline graphics and how to format a sidebar and use the story editor.

Each project also addresses real-world practicalities like spot colors, trapping, registration, bleeds, and other prepress issues. Understanding how each of these affects your print piece will be invaluable when it's time to talk with your printer. In addition, readers learn how to format and generate an index and a table of contents and how to use the version 7.0-enhanced Export PDF command.

One of the more compact books in this series, Adobe PageMaker 7.0 Classroom in a Book won't leave readers buried under excessively detailed projects. There's no wasted space and the trim, to-the-point text makes it enjoyable to work through the exercises while learning the software. Whether you use Pagemaker casually or as a daily part of your workload, you'll definitely want to pick this one up. --Angelynn Grant

From Library Journal

Desktop publishing packages like PageMaker allow even small businesses to produce professional-looking materials. This beginner's guide walks users step by step through common projects, such as creating a brochure, a flyer, and a newsletter, and also includes lessons on starting a web newsletter and online PDF (Adobe Acrobat format) newsletter. The accompanying CD contains lesson material, which can be used in conjunction with the review questions at the end of each chapter. A good supplementary resource for public libraries.

It is apparent that the book was not closely edited.

This book was used as the Pagemaker textbook for my digital publishing class, and I found it very frustrating.
guy that reviews stuff
The book takes you step by step through the exercises contained on an accompanying CD.

I really like this book. I think that the best way to start to learn a complex piece of software, like Pagemaker, is too get your feet wet using 'real world' exercises. And that is exactly what this book offers you.
It may be true that you do not always know exactly what you are doing when you step through the nice lessons in the book, because not every step is explained in detail, but that is not so important. When you have finished all the lessons, you know very well what Pagemaker has to offer, and you are ready to make your own brochures, letters, booklets, during which you will learn all the details of every Pagemaker feature using the help or a reference book. This book is not (and not meant to be) a reference book, use the Complete Reference or the Visual Quick Start guide instead, but it gets you started in a very good and pleasant way.
It may also be true that some fonts may not be present on the CD-Rom, but everyone who has used a computer once in a while must be able to locate them elsewhere (in Pagemaker's directory for instance!!!).
Last, but absolutely not least, this book shows you some very nice examples of well designed DTP publications, they will inspire you!
If you want to learn Pagemaker, do not hesitate, buy this book, it does what it promises.

Format: Paperback
This book is the worst written of the series. It is vague about some steps, leaves out others, which can leave a beginner floundering and frustrated. It also assumes a fair bit of 'artistic' ability.It's good in that it can demonstrate some techniques very well, such a scaling - but it doesn't really help or encourage a beginner to 'get creative'. Which is the whole point of the application.

It's true. I didn't know how to use Adobe PageMaker at all, then I ordered this book as a last resort before giving up completely. Guess what? It worked! I'm not real computer-nerd like myself, but I could certainly work the lessons in this classroom in a book. It is magnificant and doesn't get enough exposure!

I was impressed with this book at first. The step-by-step instructions to creating each project are easy to follow, yet they don't baby you along, either. Unfortunately, the party was over after finishing only two of the lessons. Problem is, Adobe/Peachpit Press [messed] up and forgot to include a few of the needed fonts on the CD-ROM that comes with the book. Therefore, you can't even do most of the lessons. Good luck getting help from Adobe or Peachpit. You'll come across little information, broken web links, and recorded messages and, in general, be ignored altogether. There are a lot of books out there to help you learn Pagemaker. Don't buy this one.

Format: Paperback
I found myself very frustrated using this book. I kept going back as I thought I had missed something. For example, the author claims that all the needed fonts are included on the disk, but they are not, and without them, the examples do not look like they should. It is apparent that the book was not closely edited. REference is made to vertical rules when the action described must be a horizontal ruler! These types of errors make it very difficult for the novice to learn the application. Not that every thing is terrible, but when you spend hours because of omissions or mistakes trying to do what should only take a few minutes, it is frustrating. I do not recommend this book to anyone new to the application because unlike some of the reviewers, I do not know where to find the missing fonts. I also do not know enough about the application to know when I've followed the lessons and have gotten bad the results that it is not because I have made a mistake, but because the instructions were incomplete. So I found myself starting over and over again with the hope of getting it right. Frustrating!

Unlike some of the other Adobe Classroom in a book guides, this one was a great disappointment. Most of the lessons leave out half of the steps required to get to the "final" result, which is pretty frustrating if you are a beginner to the program, like I was. Buyer beware.

Format: Paperback
If you're the sort who likes to buy software and then use it without consulting the manual you probably own a Mac. That's fine, because that is precisely what the folks at Apple wanted to produce, a computer that needs no manual!
Still, the software that goes on that Mac or on that manual-required-before-you-start Windows=driven PC can get downright ornery. And the accompanying manual is as confusing as some passages in the Bible!
If you're one of the rest of us and have bought an Adobe product, I advise you to get the Classroom In A Book tutorial. The book and accompanying cd are terrific for any new pagemaker user.
If you work for on on a newspaper, newsletter or magazine you also should get Publication Production Using Pagemaker. The two go great together.

Speaking for a novice user, I really do not recommend this book. Constantly reference to the User's Guide makes this Classroom in a Book a bad option for beginners and all of us, new users. Trying to take the learning more seriously and our money well spent should simply warn us from buying this book!
