Regarding this Scenario Based question in the guide: Which of the following file types should you use so your client can print the menu in color? a. Greyscale b. TIFF c. RTF d. RGB The answer key indicates that the answer is d.

Is RGB really a file "type" that a typical client would print from? I consider it more of a color mode.

Just out of curiosity, when are you guys going to update your study guides? I know you don't need an update for every CC update, but we are now on CC 18 certification. This is a great resource, but its three years behind the certification.

​Hi Everyone,

With the help of members of the Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) and Adobe Education Leader communities, we have updated these study guides. These guides now link to the most up-to-date Adobe InDesign CC documentation and tutorials related to the Adobe Certified Associate Print & Digital Media Publications Using Adobe InDesign CC 2015 exam.

Additionally, the Digital Careers Teaching Materials have been updated and organized to help you find the resources you need to help you prepare your students for this and other ACA exams.

We hope that these materials prove to be useful for both you and your students.
