Learning ReportBuilder is a complete learning system designed to teach end users how to build a range of reports. This system includes a 125-page PDF file, a stand-alone application complete with a database, and a help file. The PDF file is comprised of a series of tutorials that step end users through the process of building reports as simple as a table listing and as complex as crosstabs. The tutorials also introduce conceptual aspects of report building along the way. The application is used in conjunction with the tutorials so that the learning experience is interactive. The end user just prints out the PDF file, runs the application, and learns ReportBuilder. The help file is accessible from the application, so all three tools work together to provide a seamless learning environment.
Learning ReportBuilder installs into C:\Program Files\LearnReportBuilder. When the system has successfully installed, a complete set of instructions appears in the form of a ‘ReadMe’ doc, so the end user knows just what to do upon installation.
The documentation requires Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is also available for download.

Learning to RAP is written for end-users who have mastered the concepts taught by Learning ReportBuilder and desire to build more advanced data driven documents.
