If you're a premium member of the lynda.com libiary, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this course. You can download these files from the exercise files tab on the main page of this course on lynda.com then unzip them and put the exercise files folder on your desktop as I have it here. In this folder you'll see subfolders for every chapter. Each of which contains a folder for every movie in that chapter. This course is compatible with all versions of InDesign from CS6 through the latest version of InDesign CC.
And the files are provided as indd documents for the 2014 release of InDesign CC, and in the backward compatible idml format for users of earlier versions. If you dont have access to the exercise files, you can easily follow along with the course using files of your own.
