If you're a beginner to web design and wish to use Expression, I feel this is the best first book. The other two books I have are Using Expression Web and Foundations of Expression Web. From a beginner's point of view I have to say Using Expression Web is a tidbit book. It's something I'll use for reference and/or an overview of specific examples. It's not something I'd recommend for anyone to learn the software ground up. I just finished Beginning Expression Web so I haven't dug into Foundations of Expression just yet. I'm expecting it to be similar to this book but covering a couple of different topics, specifically Dynamic Web Templates and master pages.
No idea how to teach how to use the gui interface for tag manipulation. Says 'do this and this happens' NO IT DOESN'T.
I'm a coder..i expect a howto book to be code...perfect. its a Wiley publication, i expect better from them.
The video that comes with the product is really the best so far. I think i'll buy more from them.
