Although not an extensive volume at 240 pages, this full-color book is a practical guide to useful techniques for creating professional graphic design work using CorelDRAW. The material included familiarizes the reader with the basic tools, features, and capabilities of the software, provides guidance on maximizing its potential, and instructs on how to turn good ideas into good designs and prepare the resulting designs for output.
The biggest strengths of the book are the instructions on customizing the CorelDRAW workspace, tools, and templates for a smooth workflow, and the advice on establishing the best practices to achieve specific results for a varied collection of projects. Other strong points are that the included step-by-step instructions, tips, and tricks are paired with practical examples of the typical work you are likely to create or encounter, and that the glossary of terms, the thorough index, and the troubleshooting section of the book are excellent resources for general referencing, cross-referencing, and finding fast and simple solutions to common issues you might need help with, respectively. Also, additional content for the tutorials and a very useful at-a-glance guide with an overview of the main features of CorelDRAW can be readily downloaded from the publisher's website. Likewise, even though the book is published as a paperback, its superior print and binding quality will withstand repeated consultation and use.
There are, however, two reasons why I don't give this book a five-star rating.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a good book for someone that is new to Corel Draw, and needs to use Corel Draw for publications. The book is a mix of publication and graphic basics, nd how to implement those basics in Corel Draw. The book is not designed to be a manual on all the features of Corel Draw, and may not cover everything for publications either, but it definitely gets one started. If one needs to make a decision between buying Corel Draw and other software that might be cheaper and more simple to use, this book can make buying Corel Draw worthwhile because it gets you going on features and methods not brought upfront by Corel or in Corel's user manual that comes with the software.

The book have many examples, and those examples come with tutorials. However, the tutorials are design specific, and apply to the example. For instance, a logo is created of a lighthouse. You learn some features of Corel, but its not meant to show all the features of Corel. One drawback of the book is that it relies on keyboard shortcuts and does not tell you where to go in the application on many instances. But, I believe the book is more or less trying to go through the methodology of using Corel, not showing you a step by step for every function. If the book had more concentration on using the mouse and where to find features in the user interface, and for screen captures, I would have rated it a 5-star.

I didn't purchase Corel Draw for publications or brochures. But, with this manual, I think I can use Corel Draw for those tasks. And in case I will ever try that, this book will remain close by on my bookshelf.

Roger Wambolt has put together a great book explaining many of the intricacies of Corel Draw X6. He has an easy writing style and his instructions are easy to follow and understand. I would recommend this book to anyone with questions about the software.

This is a great book for a beginner user to CorelDRAW. It shows you how to create logos and business publications for a small or large business. It has lots of pictures and it is definitely worth the money.

My take on this book was more a tutorial than a learning experience. It wasn't what I was personally looking for, but a great book none the less. This book is for the learner that is just getting started with this program. If you are looking for a great starter package. This book is it. It will open the beginning doors of Corel for you. Lots of educational info.
