Awesome Textbook  March 24, 2011

For me, this textbook is the best. It explains the functionality within In design menu items in addition to walking through the steps of a specific function, the layout nicely done, graphics are large and easy to view, the instruction simple to follow. Relevant keyboard shortcuts and relevant for expediency It is easy to read, easy to understand and will continue to be a great reference book for me in the future.

Exploring Adobe InDesign CS5: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.


In the world of design, projects don't come with directions. The "recipe book" approach used by most software books does little to prepare designers for the demands of a highly competitive industry. Exploring Adobe Indesign Cs5 takes a different approach

With its emphasis on typography and critical thinking, Exploring Adobe Indesign Cs5 transforms the novice into a professional who is able to use the software while applying industry-standard design principles. In addition to understanding how to use the new features of Adobe InDesign CS5, readers learn to identify each project's challenges and to strategize the best production sequence.

This book is easy to read, the text size is comfortable, the directions are clear and complete, the graphics that accompany each step are accurate. It explains the functionality within Indesign menu items in addtion to walking through the steps of a specific function.

Chapters and projects are carefully organized to move learners from basic operations to creating complex documents. Each chapter builds on the skills presented in the previous chapter. As in industry, the emphasis throughout is on technical accuracy and productivity.
