1st Tip

Audio skimming should be Shift-S not Shift-R

Note from the Author or Editor:
Huh. Apple must have changed this keystroke in an update. In the first tip on page 52, change the keystroke from "Shift-R" to "Shift-S". It appears twice in the tip.

Note from the Author or Editor:
This is good feedback. Delete the parenthetical in the bullet "Highlight consecutive clips." Change the paragraph at the top of page 55 to read, "Selecting clips in the storyboard or Event browser works..."
