adobe illustrator

…i’ve used coreldraw for about 10 years now and thought i might try illustrator but i am finding the transition frustrating…i need a good hardcopy book for illustrator techniques…any suggestions?

If you like tutorial based books I would recommend classroom in a book for Adobe Illustrator (ISBN: 0321193806).

I have this book series for web stuff and found them to be great. I’m not familiar with this book though:
Adobe Illustrator CS Hands-On Training (Hands on Training (H.O.T)
by Jeff Van West (ISBN: 0321203038)

If you aren’t a tutorial type person check out the Quickstart books. I use these for many applications.

Peachpit Press
Adobe Illustrator CS Visual QuickStart Guide
