Coming from Adobe press you can assume that this book will be the essential Photoshop tutorial, especially with its "Classroom" title and the fact it's part of Adobes official training series. The cover features Photoshop's familiar eye graphic that's used on the supplied manual and outer packaging.
The book is laid out like the manual supplied with the program so it is disappointingly dull with lots of monotone images and just a small colour section in the centre. That said, the info provided and the way it's laid out makes it a great learning tool. Each chapter is set up as a lesson with 17 in total. You follow each lesson and then at the end there are several questions to test your understanding, followed immediately by the answers, should you wish to cheat.
The book doesnt really cover much more than the guide that comes with the program, but as each section is a lesson and you get all the tutorial material on a supplied CD, it's much easier to work through to grasp the various tools.
If you're struggling to get to grips with the program even after reading the guide that comes with the Photoshop or you bought a copy without a manual then this guide is well worth having. If you already have a manual or bought the Classroom in a Book for version 5.0 there are other books that would be more useful, such as the Photoshop Wow book or Deke McCelland's excellent Photoshop Bible, or Photoshop 6.0 A to Z.
