Format: Hardcover
As a trainer of CIW courses I have used the official CIW curriculum materials created by to train the CIW Site Designer course. This book is 'Endorsed by Prosoft' so the book very closely follows the official courseware. This makes it ideal as a self study guide because it gives you extremely similar content to the official course materials.
The writing style is good in that it is fairly easy to read and not too technical. There are some sections that you may not agree with (particularly regarding e-commerce practices) but you will just have to suspend disbelief until you take the exam because what CIW says is gospel as far as the exam is concerned.
The only side to this book that does not reflect the instructor-led course materials is that on the instructor-led Site Designer course there is a large amount of time set aside for learning FrontPage, Dreamweaver and Flash. There are no exercises for any of these packages within this book and only one chapter to cover them all. There will be some questions in the exam of the form: "Which Dreamweaver menu would you use to choose the option 'Preview in Browser?" so you really need to familiarise yourself with these packages before you take the exam. (The answer is the 'File' menu, by the way.) Of course if you already know these packages that will not be a problem for you. If you are new to the applications you will just need to scour the web for tutorials or buy some more books!
CIW exams are extremely fair in that all the test questions come from the study materials (unlike Microsoft exams in which you can be tested on obscure command line parameters that you would not read about in your average exam guide ...

Although the book contains loads of useful information which probably can help with the exam, half of it is simply out of date! At least the things I know of - like using tables for web layout???? so it makes it difficult to trust the book ...

Must have book for high grades in a short time! 20 Sep 2002
By K. Leeman - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A very concise must have book that condenses the material down into what you really need to know to obtain high CIW grades. It helped me pass the Site Designer exam with a 93 and E-Commerce with an 83. The Assessment Test at the beginning of the book gave me a very accurate look at what I needed to concentrate on but I read every page too. Especially helpful were the chapter summaries, exam essentials, and key terms at the end of every chapter which exactly pinpointed what I needed to learn. Also, the questions with answers at the end of every chapter were very exam like and perfect for practice exams when not near a computer. I took the book everywhere. But I also spent many hours with their Sybex EdgeTest Engine on the included CD simulating the exam until my scores were passing. I tried out the included flashcard feature, too, but much preferred the multiple choice format. Since this is their first edition, it does have some typos and a few questions with errors but they were very easy to spot and fix. Many thanks to the author, publisher, and to Amazon.

Study Exam Guide 28 Jan 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Passed CIW exam 1D0-420 & 1D0-425 scoring 90% for each.
I found the book very easy to read & a concise Study Guide (at times maybe TOO concise). The Site Design-Part 1, covered all the exam objectives with good explanations. However I felt that the E-Commerce - Part II, fell short of covering 2 aspects of the exam objectives, namely Catelog Design & relating OPI-OBI standards.
All in all, I would recommend this book to anyone striving to pass the above CIW exams.

Not quite enough for the CIW v5 Site Designer 30 Jun 2006
By Librarian from NC - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I recently passed the CIW Site Designer exam by studying almost entirely from this book. I scored an 80 on the exam. Even though I passed, I don't recommend using this book alone when preparing for the exam. There are questions on Flash and security, topics which are not covered in this book. I recommend supplementing this book with other material for anyone planning to sit for Version 5.

Great choice for exam prep 14 July 2004
By William Cole - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I bought this book used based on recomendations of others and was not let down. I would suggest additional Internet research on OBI statndards and OPI standards. Regardless, this book presents information necessary to pass the test with a high score in a concise and well organized fasion. I got a 92 on the first part and a 92 on the second part. I may just keep this book.

I purchased this book for school, it was a decent read, great for gathering some highlights and topic awareness gathering purposes. Goes father into vague topics than necessary. Perfect for a beginner, but too much for a practitioner.
