Classes or good books for QuarkXPress?

Post by Thorshammer » 17 Mar 2015, 15:29

I don't know if living in the west (Utah-not a native), makes a difference, but in the past I could never find any courses to go over Quarkxpress, nor did I find any books that were user friendly. Does anyone have any links for courses offered online or within the west (Az,California,Las Vegas...Utah) area? A good book would be nice. Last time I purchased one was the QuarkXPress Bible. Thanks for reading my inquiry.

Hi Thor...

There are courses available, at least in the Portland, Ore area.

There is a series of videos with materials available on the Quark main web site:

I don't know if there is a book out for version 10, but there is one for version 9 which really wouldn't be a deviation as 10 didn't change too much. If you're on a Mac, likely the biggest difference is most of the ctrl+m dialog box commands now take you to the command palette. Other than that, I think it should work. I have not read it, so buyer beware...it is from a notable training company.

Pariah Burke is in the Portland area and is the only place local to me that offers classes. However, I would take a look at some of the on-line design colleges as well. I don't keep up with training offerings so I have no recommendations--including Burke. I have'nt ever used their services before.

While his website doesn't offer much in detail, I would drop them an email and inquire as to the level of training you want and see if something can be tailored to your situation.
