    OK but leaves out steps.

    The design elements are good. The How To Steps are lacking. Has a tendency to leave out steps. Would recommend using more screen shots of adobe to help find some of the features mentioned.

    Highly Recommended

    Finally, a book that clearly teaches professional design techniques and how to achieve them. Scott Citron has created a great reference tool for students, teachers, and seasoned designers. 'Professional Design Techniques with Adobe Creative Suite 3' would make an excellent book in any design school's curriculum. This comprehensive tutorial eliminates the need for any other book on the subject ¿ it is truly the definitive Creative Suite learning tool.
