5.0 out of 5 stars easy to follow, very helpful, February 5, 2009
This review is from: Adobe Illustrator CS4 Classroom in a Book (Paperback)
I've been using Illustrator and Adobe CS2 for 4 years and I am trying to get up to speed on my new CS4. I chose to use this book to learn the details of Illustrator. I found it very helpful, systematic, and clear. Good illustrations. Good lesson files.

The first few chapters exercise real details of basic tool function. Most of this was not new to me, for instance holding down various keys while dragging or clicking change the characteristics of the tool, but I still learned a few things I had missed by my earlier "seat of the pants" education.

More challenging exercises come later in the book. I haven't gotten through every exercise yet, I've been picking and choosing as my interest sends me.
I've had quite a few revelations. I appreciate being exposed to the new features in Illustrator CS4 in a systematic way.

This is a great book for learning. I will use it as a reference tool, too. The review questions/answers are helpful, particularly to review a section after some time has passed.
