CorelDraw 9 Bible is made up of 17 chapters divided into 4 parts.
If you are a novice publisher or designer, you can read the book in
order because the process of page design is presented in increasing
levels of sophistication. If you are experienced, you can read the book
in any order--pick the sections or chapters that cover the design issues
you want to know more about. The book is very well organized, and even
though it is not in color, it has a wealth of illustrations and tables
on almost every other page. Each chapter begins with an overview of
its information, and ends with a quick summary.
Quick Start: This short tutorial, which shows you how to create an image map for use on the Web, gives you a feel for the program and shows you how easy it is to use some of Draw's basic tools and commands.
