By Jennifer B.
I actually sent this one back. I think the title is misleading because it sounds like it's a book for professionals (to me, at least). But it really is a book for beginning users of Illustrator. It says it prepares you for the ACP exam - which I thought must be difficult. But maybe not, because this book is really basic. I was looking forward to learning some advanced techniques and doing cool projects over the summer. But alas, it was not to be.
I gave it three stars because it's probably pretty good for someone just starting out.
