Customer Reviews of Adobe Illustrator for Fashion Design


Rated 1 out of 5 by from DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY About 80% of the value of this book is accessed online via - but the page doesn't exist and this link is referenced for every lesson and video resource discussed from section 2 onward. When contacting Pearson they wouldn't answer why the link was invalid, but offered to provide me with another link if I gave them more money. When I pointed out that I paid the same amount for the book that Pearson charges on their site for the 'complete' package that includes the code (to access the page that doesn't exist) they only reiterated that I needed to give them more money while completely ignoring my questions. Given that I can't access 80% of the material I paid for , I can't really comment on the quality of the content, but to say that the Pearson customer service is poor would be a gross understatement and no book is worth the headache of trying to get answers from Pearson who apparently subscribe to the mantra, 'if we don't answer the question, it was never asked'. What an awesome approach to higher education. If you are considering this book, save your money and your Advil and don't bother. A much better buy for about half the price and no headache is; Fashion Designer's Handbook for Adobe Illustrator By Marianne Centner, Frances Vereker
