Very well done - it's like taking a class while reading the book Sept. 21 2007
By SimsGal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a wonderful starting point for someone new to Dreamweaver (and Web design). Its step-by-step approach makes it easy to learn how to use the many features that are available in Dreamweaver. And the CD that comes with the book is also great. It contains sample files so you can do all of the exercises in the book, which contribute greatly to the learning process. It also has video tutorials, another really nice feature. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is learning Dreamweaver. It's one of the best how-to books I have ever used.

Not a book for Beginners March 20 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a very thorough book, covering almost all aspects of Dreamweaver. However the author assumes that the reader already has a pretty good understanding of computer programs and web design. This book was assigned to me as the textbook for a Dreamweaver course at a local college. Most of the students, including me, had a very hard time understanding much of the terms used in this book, even in the first chapter.

Just so you know what I'm talking about, here are some quotes from the FIRST chapter. "Sure, you could use other technologies such as Java Script and CSS and server-side languages such as ASP, JSP, Adobe ColdFusion and such." "DHTML uses a combination of XHTML, JavaScript, CSS, and the DOM." "Web applications have also been referred to as data-driven, database-driven, and dynamic sites. In almost all cases, a Web application involves a database and server-side scripting, such as ASP, Adobe ColdFusion, PHP, and so on." I don't know about you, but I have no idea what the author is talking about.

I think that if you are pretty savvy about computer programming in general, or have worked with HTML before, or if you know other Adobe programs such as Photoshop, then you are probably at a level where you can take advantage of the information in this book. If, however, you are new to web design and HTML like I am, then there must be other books that explain Dreamweaver in a more simplistic way for beginners.

Not so great Feb. 13 2008
By S. Liese - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is just a repackaged version of their Dreamweaver 8 book, which I am also not a fan of. The book never takes a beginner through the process of creating a site from scratch. The book does not give the user any standards based and accessible layout options. The book does not emphasize best practices in web design. The book does not address the topics in a logical, learning based manner. Instead, they introduce topics section by section, glossing over things that the user hasn't even learned yet. The CSS chapter is not thorough enough and they go through a significant number of important css topics (classes, IDs, descendant selectors) without reinforcing those topics with the reader in any way. I give this book a big thumbs down. Do you want to know how to really build a web page? Read Head First HTML, XHTML and CSS. Now, that is a great book.

Adobe Dreamweaver CS3 by Garrick Chow Nov. 21 2007
By Cecelia J. Gaxiola - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
What a lifesaver. I was so lost! This book started answering my questions from page one. Easy to follow, hands-on training and at the right price. You can start on your project as you read. Priceless!!

Solid training, not just basic Sept. 21 2007
By Erin S. Contour - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm in school - this book was a textbook. I've used the Adobe Press ones, too basic and boring examples. I hardly read them and never again used them as a reference. This one I enjoy reading and do refer to. There is more information and I like the layout.
