5.0 out of 5 stars A Must-Have for New Dreamweaver Users July 9 2011
By John D. Pearce - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I pre-ordered the book right after purchasing Dreamweaver CS5.5 (my first exposure to Dreamweaver). In the five weeks that followed I created a pretty good web site--without the Missing Manual.

Within the first 38 pages, the author earned the purchase price! Knowing just a few of the few things he brings out at the beginning would've saved me hours and hours of fiddling around trying to figure these same things out--which I was only able to do because I had a little prior knowledge of HTML.

I can't wait to get deeper into the MM and learn how to use CS5.5 to its full potential!

2.0 out of 5 stars DW 5.5 The Missing Manual Copy and Paste Nov. 18 2011
By William Angell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I recently upgraded from DW CS3 to CS5.5 and bought this book to get a understand the new tools and tricks. Turns out, that this version of the book is mostly a cut and paste of the previous version. For example I was looking for CSS3 and HTML 5 specifics available in this version of DW and the book either quickly glossed over them or mentioned that they were newer standards and still evolving and thus wrote very little on these topics. In my opinion this truly is a Missing Manual, there is not much new in this book at all while the DW product has evolved considerably.

If you never used a Missing Manual, there is a lot here to get value from. In my opinion, it's out of date and has not been updated.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book on CS5.5 Dec 9 2011
By D. Petersen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I find this book easy to read with lots of examples and pictures to go along with the text. There are also tutorials built into each chapter which give you a chance to try out what you've been reading about. The writing is entertaining and not dry to read. I have an older version of Dreamweaver so am not new to the program but wasn't really using it much so pretty much needed to start from scratch. I am also not a professional programmer but do web design for my church so am not a total novice. I would highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you returning after being away for awhile Nov. 3 2011
By Steve - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
If you're a novice with a little background and you want to be a pro this book will do it. If you have dual
monitors it's the perfect combination for learning. It's a lot of stuff to cover, some you can highlight to
come back to when needed, but you won't be left lacking. When you're done you'll have it all.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book has it ALL! Oct. 22 2011
By Judith C. Poitis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The title is perfect for the contents. The size of the book is a bit intimidating at first glance but you can skip around and learn what you wish without having to continue from the previous chapter. The phased learning concept lets you concentrate a single subject at a time without a lot of peripheral study. Great book, Thanks
