    What they mean by modular is most likely, that it uses extensions (XT) to give it more features. There is an extension to give high-rez preview, there is an extension for advanced resizing, printer spread conversion, etc. It's similar to the Adobe plug-ins.

    As far as the crash course, you really can't learn a whole lot and retain it in one day. It's not impossible, but it takes weeks and months of using the software to make sense of most things and learn the keyboard shortcuts - which is by the way the biggest time/life-saver in any application.

    What do you need to know? Design side or press side? Do you know the basic terminology and tools?

    You could always go to Quark.com, and see if they have some tutorials, feature descriptions that might help you wing the interview.
