Review quote

"I have been very pleased with the progression of the books. Leading smoothly from one subject to another within one book as well as the smooth transition between courses. "-- Andreen Hull, Electronic Imaging Trainer, Multigraphics, Inc. "The Against the Clock textbooks have been used in our Graphic Communications Technology program for several years and they have worked very well. They relate to the 'real world' of graphics better than any textbooks I have reviewed or used. That 'real world' focus was the determining factor for the adoption of the series for our program." -- Dons Anton, Wichita Area Technical College "During the past few years, I have plowed through several tutorials designed to teach difficult and complex graphics programs. The Against the Clock series is the clearest, most comprehensive and easiest way to learn high-end graphics programs." -- Lori Lorion, Reedley Collegeshow more
