As design professionals it will be apparent if you know the rules or if you don’t. When a professional looks at your type, they can immediately tell if you "know" type. Getting and keeping the job you want requires that you know and master these rules/terms. The upper-level classes focus on the macro of typography, the big idea... this workbook focuses on the micro (all the typographic details) it is expected that you know this information and it will not be covered again.
This book is something you will take with your to your future classes and future jobs. You are creating your own resource. Take care and pay attention to every detail. This project in its self (as boring) as many of you may think it is could get you a job/internship.
