If you're a Premium member of the lynda.com online training library or if you're watching this on a DVD, you will have access to the exercise files I used throughout this video series. I suggest that after you download the files or copy them from the DVD, that you place them on your desktop for easy access. There's one main Exercise File folder, and within that folder you'll find a folder for each chapter, plus a folder of links. Inside each chapter folder you'll find folders for each lesson and then within that, you'll find the InDesign file used in that lesson.
If you're a Monthly subscriber, you won't have access to the exercise files, but you can still follow along, by repeating the steps shown in the movies, using your own files. Now let's get started.
