Review:

As with each entry in the Classroom in a Book series, this one is used as part of Adobe's official training and certification program. Adobe PageMaker 7.0 Classroom in a Book (With CD-ROM) offers practical, step-by-step, timed lessons covering all of Pagemaker's features and tools and ensures that readers master the application. In addition, it provides clear explanations on how and why things work the way they do and supplies elegantly professional artwork on which to practice.

Each lesson is well organized, from the opening rundown of what will be covered to the final chapter review, complete with quiz questions (and answers). Projects are the sort of practical challenges that most desktop publishers face today: flyer, letterhead, project proposal, CD jewel-case booklet, brochure, print and Web-based newsletters, color catalog, and more. You learn how to work with master pages, styles, and inline graphics and how to format a sidebar and use the story editor.

Each project also addresses real-world practicalities like spot colors, trapping, registration, bleeds, and other prepress issues. Understanding how each of these affects your print piece will be invaluable when it's time to talk with your printer. In addition, readers learn how to format and generate an index and a table of contents and how to use the version 7.0-enhanced Export PDF command.

One of the more compact books in this series, Adobe PageMaker 7.0 Classroom in a Book won't leave readers buried under excessively detailed projects. There's no wasted space and the trim, to-the-point text makes it enjoyable to work through the exercises while learning the software. Whether you use Pagemaker casually or as a daily part of your workload, you'll definitely want to pick this one up. --Angelynn Grant

From the Back Cover:

You've added Adobe PageMaker7.0 to your digital studio (or plan to). Now pick up the fastest, easiest, most comprehensive way to master the award-winning page-layout program--Adobe PageMaker 7.0 Classroom in a Book. This bestselling, hands-on workbook and CD package delivers something no other guide can: Adobe's official training series, developed by the company's own experts and tested in its classrooms and labs.

Each chapter is a self-paced lesson, based on real-world design projects. And each project builds on the skills you learn in previous lessons. For example, you may start by creating a single-page, black-and-white flyer, then quickly progress to more challenging projects, such as designing professional-quality letterhead, an eight-page CD booklet, a sports catalog, a Web-based newsletter, and more. Along the way, you'll learn to take advantage of version 7.0's new features, including its seamless integration with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, its ability to merge text and images from database and spreadsheet programs, and the way it now allows you to view and create PDFs, as well as open and edit QuarkXPress documents.
