    Easy to Learn

    Knowing nothing about Illustrator, I was a bit apprehensive having to approach Illustrator for the first time. The lessons are broken up in easy small pieces and the instructios are very paced and accurate.

    The book is not user-friendly!

    As a Graphic Design student I found this textbook hard to use. The book is made up of assignments. Unless you are following the assignments the information presented is hard to apply elsewhere. It's not a reference book!
