        I'm doing a class in college for applied graphics; and I was terrified. I have huge troubles with working technology, I feel like I was born in the wrong era.
        I bought this book, and I have found it really helpful and am really happy with the results I got for my assignments.
        Highly recommend, it's great to highlight and refer to while working on projects.
