I also took the Apple Certified Associate - iWork test right after reading this book the first time and aced it. If you plan to take the test, then assume it is based on this book ... meaning there is a Save As option still (see above).
There is maybe one or two errors in the exercises but you can figure it out ... no biggie. One surprise is the high quality color photos/screenshots in this book. Other books in the Apple Training Series are in black and white and/or lack screenshots.
Lastly, this is not a comprehensive or advanced manual but more than enough for the daily user. I expected that and that's why I gave it a five star rating.
One has to remember that it's not a general how-to guide or "missing manual" type book, as it is geared towards teaching what is on Apple's certification syllabus. So those wanting to know everything there is to know about iWork should probably look elsewhere.
However, this book was perfect for my needs, and I'm sure even experienced iWork users could still learn a thing or two from reading it. If you're considering doing your iWork certification, this is required reading. It also comes with a code for $20 off the cost of the certification exam, which enhances its value even further.
All in all, a highly recommended book.
The Apple Training Series teaches in a project based environment - that means .. not only can I look up something specific to what I am doing, but the hands on method sticks. As I learned my first project in Keynote I found there were overlaps I could immediately apply to Pages and Numbers - Fantastic!! and can not recommend it highly enough for the Mac convert, new user or the Mac user that wants to refine what they already do comfortably.

I like the Portable genius better. Shave and a haircut two bits
