Our books are packed with step-by-step exercises that walk you through projects. You’ll learn by doing exercises, not reading long explanations commonly found in user manuals. The goal is to give you hands-on practice with the program, getting you started quickly with the things that are most important for real life work. Our books are not a replacement for the manual, but manuals aren’t how you learn an app!
