Just Google "How to use Dreamweaver CC" instead.29 May 2015
- Published on Amazon.com
Purchasing this book is my sole regret in life. If you are under the delusion that you will learn to use Dreamweaver by reading this book, that's adorable. I was like you once. I used to be happy and hopeful. Then I bought this book for an online class. This book... This book is everything that is corrupt and immoral in this world. I have to hand it to the authors; it would have been a lot of work to write a whole new book when Dreamweaver went from CS6 to CC. Their creative solution (just change the cover so it says “Creative Cloud”, silly) probably saved them hours. This book is too ashamed to even state exactly which version of Dreamweaver it is based on. Some tutorials use features from CS6, some from an outdated version of CC. Have you ever seen a group project where you can tell everything was just thrown together at the wee hours of the morning it's due with no proofreading for accuracy or consistency? That is this book.
I would have done just as well in my class if I had spent the $125.74 on coloring books and skittles rather than purchasing this worthless rectangle of failure and incorrectness.

Absolute garbage. And I do mean ABSOLUTE27 May 2015

Absolute garbage. And I do mean ABSOLUTE. I bought this book for a community college course and had to drop the course because this book is so screwed up. It is based around tutorials, however virtually every single step is wrong in one way or another. I can only think that the publisher has been sabotaged from within: mere incompetence cannot account for such perfection in wrongness. They seem to have simply slapped the words 'Creative Cloud' on the cover of a previous edition to make it sound hip, without actually testing the content with the current version of the program. Dreamweaver CC has been out for two full years now. I know they are going to say "Adobe keeps changing Dreamweaver" as an excuse. Well... do yourself a favor and get "Dreamweaver CC: The Missing Manual, 2ND ED.". It has much more—and better—explanations of the material, is better organized, and all the tutorials I have done (over half of them so far) have worked perfectly. So that proves it is possible to write a competent how-to guide to Dreamweaver CC. And it's less than a third of the price to boot.
