Not As Expected
By C. Lovelady
I've been wanting this book for a long time and finally bit the bullet and purchased it to help me learn more about Photoshop, Illustrator, and Muse, specifically. The first section I completed (Section 2) was interesting and fun. I learned a few things about InDesign that I didn't know and some things about Illustrator and Photoshop. I moved next to Section 1. I found this section a bit harder to work through. I believe Section 2 was easier to work through because I already use InDesign and know how to get around within the program quite well. While working on Section 1 I began to notice that the lesson plans assume the user has a good understanding of the workspace, tools, and panels of all the programs used in each exercise. There aren't many inline graphics showing tools/icons so if you're not familiar with one, you have to hunt to find it before continuing. The prerequisites don't mention the need to have a general working knowledge of each program.
I also expected the exercises to be more basic. For instance when I began working on Section 3 to learn about Muse it immediately jumped me into a website that was mostly complete in its structure. The first exercises were about working with animations. I wanted to learn about setting up the web pages, site map, etc. In my opinion animations shouldn't be the first thing to teach someone.
Overall, I don't believe the description gives justice to the book, which I think is a great tool for those who are already familiar with the basics of the programs and just want to learn more. For those like me who want more basic techniques, look elsewhere. To give it more perspective, I know Corel programs pretty well, so I'm not new to the terms and concepts, I just need to know the specifics of how to do things in Photoshop and Illustrator. This book failed me in that respect.

Already Dated, Rather Obsolete Already, Unfortunately
By Gianna James
I was dismayed to find how dated the material in this manual is. For example, in a chapter that teaches you about the features of InDesign CC, you are told to use a handful of functions and options that no longer exist in the latest InDesign CC update, whatsoever. It was very frustrating and confusing for me. I regret paying what I did for this book.

I like the Adobe Classroom in a Book series. Who else to explain a product than the people who created it? Some of it is confusing for "newbies" like me, but if I keep trying I eventually get it.
