Learn QuarkXPress 7

QuarkXPress 7: Upgrading from Version 6, by Erika Kendra, is a step-by-step, hands-on training manual for learning the new features of QuarkXPress 7. It includes a CD containing all the example files in the book. If you learn best from step-by-step books, this is the best one I’ve found. 196 pages, $34.99 from Against The Clock.

If you learn better from video-based training, try QuarkXPress 7: New Features, by Jay Nelson, the editorial director of PlanetQuark.com. Its 5.5 hours of self-paced training covers every new feature in a relaxed, supportive style. $99 from Lynda.com.
