This is a brilliant book. It's a great shame that the 2 previous reviewers were not able to get the associated downloaded lessons to work properly as - having now worked through the whole of the book myself - I can see that although useful, the book would be of limited value as it works with the lessons throughout.
Of course there's no knowing until you've purchased the product whether you will have problems downloading the lessons but I would have thought that surely there must be some way for Adobe Support (or Pearson?) to resolve this. Maybe as I've had no problems acquiring the files, it's something they've now sorted out, I don't know.
But if you can get the files...... you will definitely not regret buying the book. I'm not the quickest when it comes to following instructions but I have worked through the whole book in 3 (admittedly full!) days and it is written in a very clear and easy to follow manner and I was able to work through every example successfully.
I have previously used video editing software for some years but much more basic, and had not realised until getting into this package just how much easier this software it is to use - and also just how much more it can do. Even though I would of course gradually learn to use the package if I didn't have the book, it has shown me what is possible in just a few days and how to do it.
If you want to learn all about Adobe Premiere Elements, I honestly cannot recommend it enough (assuming you can get the lessons) and no, I have absolutely no connection with Adobe, Pearson etc!

Still good usedReviewed in the United Kingdom on 12 June 2018
Good training book. Needs the files for the lessons. As secondhand the code in the book wouldn't work for file download. However a quick google found an alternative code that worked then all good.
Very dissatisfiedReviewed in the United Kingdom on 28 May 2014
Very poor product which did not work and was returned. I have a lot of computer experience and found this product problematical from the start when the lessons would not download and then did not work in line with the book.
