    Not useful to experienced computer users

    I downloaded the trial version of SmartDraw to see if I wanted to buy it but the download lacked good reference information so I bought this book by mail order thinking it would fill in the gaps. Unfortunately, it does little to expand on the information provided with the program and is targeted at people who are inexperienced with computers. For example it devotes an entire page, including screen shots, to an explanation of how to click and drag with the mouse. I'm fairly experienced with computers and have used several graphics programs before and the book is of little value to me. I'm returning it.

    What I wanted was an explanation of the graphical concepts of the program and a reference manual of the drawing primitives and methods in the program. Instead most of this book is devoted to showing how to combine the templates that come with the program, of which there are many, to complete very specific projects. The projects include such things as Creating a Restaurant Menu, Creating an Emergency Exit Drawing to Post in Every Room, Creating a Crime Scene Reconstruction for a law office, and Creating a Medication Schedule for Patients. Templates are provided with the program for these purposes so all the "projects" amount to is combining the templates together and typing suitable labels. The explanations are very simplistic and consist almost entirely of a series of screen shots. 95% of the book is screen shots. briefly annotated. If you have an illustration project that is similar to one of the templates, and you haven't used computer graphics software before, this book may be useful. On the other hand, if you have that kind of project you don't really need a book because the templates in the program are self-explanatory.

    The current version of the program is 2010 but the book describes the 2009 version. The difference may be insignificant but I did spot some minor discrepancies between the book and the screen. It has no index.
