Training Resources for Adobe Acrobat 9

Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro and Pro Extended Banner

A great training resource is worth its weight in gold whether you are a novice user or a seasoned veteran working with an application. And Adobe Acrobat 9 is one of those programs so chocked full of feature goodness that many have yet to tap into the true potential of this “Swiss Army knife of Adobe software!” So time and again I am asked for a list of great Adobe Acrobat 9 resources and I have compiled some of the best in this article. My recommendation is to copy the links below into a MS Word document, save it to your computer, and explore at your leisure.
