InDesign CS4 One-on-One
Read the lesson. Watch the video. Do the exercisesEnjoy mastering the fundamentals of InDesign CS4 with Deke McClelland's exceptional and effective new learning system, "Adobe InDesign CS4 One-on-One". Deke, who wrote the first book on InDesign in 1999, provides easy-to-follow, step-by-step lessons, engaging DVD-video demonstrations, and practical yet inspiring projects that help you increase your knowledge and hone your skills.
"I created One-on-One with three audiences in mind," explains Deke, author of more than 80 books on computer graphics and design. "If you're an independent designer or graphic artist--professional or amateur--you'll appreciate the hands-on approach and the ability to set your own pace. If you're a student working in a classroom or vocational setting, you'll enjoy the personal attention, structured exercises, and end-of-lesson quizzes. If you're an instructor in a college or vocational setting, you'll find the topic-driven lessons helpful in building curricula and creating homework assignments."
Adds Deke: "Adobe InDesign CS4 One-on-One' is designed to suit the needs of beginners and intermediate users. But I've seen to it that each lesson contains a few techniques that even experienced users don't know."
In Deke's new book, you'll find:
12 self-paced tutorials that let you learn at your own speed
Engaging practical projects that let you try out real techniques
More than four hours of all new video instruction that show you how to do the work in real-time

Multiple-choice quizzes in each chapter that help you test your knowledge
