Customer Reviews
Reviewer: from MD
CorelDraw 8 for Dummies: In general the book is fun and easy to read. I used it to learn CorelDraw for the first time. Everything is explained in plain English. The only two things that slightly annoyed me were: emphasizing the use of the rarely-used "keyboard equivalents" instead of the mouse and some unnecessary chunks of text with vague explanations that could be easily avoided. The witty descriptions are refreshing for someone, but only for one who is not in a rush to obtain the core of information.

Reviewer: from UK
One of the those books that is nice for begineers but a little annoying for those with computer experience. On the whole it was good (and the humour was excellent) but it is designed as a book for beginners. Having said that, there was enough in it for myself (experience in computers but new to Corel 8) to buy it; and it at least touched on Corel 3D which was more than the official guide seemed to. If you are a beginner, get it; intemediate well maybe, and if you are already using Corel products then I wouldn't bother. I would like to see a CorelDraw 8 for Thickies which would cover the intemediate to advance topics. Come on guys, the market's out there!
