Each chapter opens with a "Before You Begin" section, which prepares you for completing the chapter.
The chapters are then broken into lessons. Whenever possible, lessons contain practices that give you an opportunity to use the skills being presented or explore the part of the application being described. All practices include exercises and procedures that lead the reader step-by-step through the practice.
Questions placed throughout the text help you test your knowledge as you proceed. The "Review" section at the end of each chapter checks your understanding of the chapter's lessons. Appendix A, "Questions and Answers," contains all of the book's questions and the corresponding answers.
Several types of notes appear throughout the lessons.
