Good Product

User Review  - mayfarm - Overstock.com

The Adobe Bible arrived in a timely manner. It is just as described. I read the reviews of the book before ordering it. It will be a very useful learning tool. It is more of a manual than a workbook. The shipping was very reasonable and the bill later is a convenient feature for online shoppers. Read full review
