The Against the Clock series is ideal for any course that includes graphic arts software and computer design software as part of the curriculum. Courses can be found in Office Information Systems, Computer Science, and Fine Arts Departments, as well as Continuing Education, Journalism, and Printing and Lithography.
Assuming a working knowledge of QuarkXPress, QuarkXPress 5: Advanced Electronic Mechanicals builds on basic skills to introduce the more complex and technically challenging uses for the program. Focusing on issues like drawing, advanced imaging, the creation and management of long documents, style sheets and online publishing techniques, the book provides the reader with a solid way to master this popular and difficult application. By the end, there's little that the program offers that hasn't been explored, used, and applied to projects and assignments drawn from the real world of professional page design.
