If you have a Premium subscription to the lynda.com Online Training Library, or if you're watching this course on a disk, you have access to the sample audio and video files I use throughout this course, and you can use these files to work along with me. I've organized the files into folders for each chapter. My recommendation is to create a copy of each chapter's files before you start working along with that chapter. That way you'll always have fresh, unaltered versions of the files to work with in case you want to start over at any point. On Macs you can hold down the Option key while dragging a folder to a location like your desktop to create a copy of that file.
Alternately, you can right-click a folder or a file, choose to Copy it, and then right-click in the folder you want to copy that item to and choose Paste Item. You can do the same things in Windows by right-clicking a folder, choosing Copy, and then right-clicking and pasting it to create your copy. Now if you don't have access to the exercise files, you can work along with your own audio and video files, and you should still be able to follow along with no problem.
