Dreamweaver has been the tool of choice for professional Web site designers for years. And now that it is part of the Adobe Creative Suite, even more users, including beginning Web designers, will find it in their hands. This book is for them--all of the people who are itching to design their very first Web site but don't want to learn every last Dreamweaver feature to do so. This full-color volume guide offers them the quickest route to creating a well-designed, friendly Web site! Each short chapter uses big, bold screen shots and step-by-step instructions to illuminate one aspect of this process. By the end of the volume, users will create a simple Web site, fill it with text, graphics and tables, use style sheets, create image maps, add navigation and links, and test and publish the final product. Timely tips and occasional sidebars detailing good design practices round out the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just about does what it says. 2 May 2009
If you are looking for a guide book that will let you build a web site from scratch in Dreamweaver CS3 this book is probably not for you. On the other hand., If what you are looking for is a straight forward easy to follow guide to creating a web site using the templates provided in Dreamweaver CS3 this book might just be what you are looking for. It could have done with more information on editing and inserting text I feel,but otherwise covers the basics pretty well . The book also includes a weblink to a site where you can download the complete set of example files for the book and also provides updates and corrections to the instructions provided in the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth Reading 14 Dec. 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The "Visual QuickProject" range is very good, much better than average. The text is a really quite sloppy in parts. Despite this fact the communication value remains strong and retains it clarity . I would recommend this book. A better version of the this series is the "Creating a Web Site in Flash CS3". Worth buying plenty of diagrams for both OS X & Windows.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cannot recommend - fatal flaw - downloadable web companion example files do not match book 20 July 2007
By anonymous - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is geared for people new to Dreamweaver CS3 and CSS. It is a very attractive book. I wanted to love this book - it's cute - gorgeous - colorful - pleasantly laid out - big screenshots - heavy typefaces. It really-and-truly is a book for dummies like me. However, the book has one fatal flaw, big enough such that I cannot recommend the book. The flaw is that the downloadable Internet companion "example" files at waywest dot net/dwvqj do *NOT* match the book in multiple places. In my opinion, the web companion examples files are crucial to the success of the book. I emailed the author Nolan Hester a few days ago but haven't heard back. With the companion files UNmatching, it makes no sense investing in the book. By "insert flash video" on page 29, I could no longer follow along because the differences were so great. I then rifled through the rest of the book and found additional major places where the web examples files do not match the book.

If the publisher and/or author would make the necessary changes to the web companion example files so they match the book, this *COULD* be a superb idiot's "first" book. I advise NOT purchasing this book UNTIL the author and/or publisher explicitly posts a note in plain view stating that the web companion example files REALLY DO ACTUALLY match the book!

I wasted my money. After posting this review, I am shelving the book and moving on to other books on DW CS3, XHTML, CSS, etc.

I've been a fan of the publisher Peachpit Press peachpit dot com for decades. They evidently are not paying attention to detail regarding this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick Way to Get your Own Website up and running 31 July 2007
By Paris Granville - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was happy to see that this visual book only had 130 pages. I just need to get my website up and running. I don't need to know all the details about Dreamweaver. This book did for me in a day. I didn't download their website examples, but worked directly on my own site. This does require you to extrapolate a bit, but that's how you will learn to do it your self. This book is organized around what the user wants to do. It doesn't step you through all the menus like most books. That great, because that's the way it works in real life.

4.0 out of 5 stars VERY GOOD starter resource 20 Oct. 2007
By Adam - Published on
I almost gave this 5 stars, but because it's just a small book that's intended as a a 'starter' then 5 seemed too much. Anyway, I think this book is very good at getting you up and around in Dreamweaver CS3. This book is a GREAT start for a beginner (experienced web programmers should skip it.) I'm no expert by any stretch, just an average user who needs to create a website for my small side business.

The book takes you through making a sample website, with easy examples of elements you might want to use in your own site. I think it does a great job of 'learning by doing' but doesn't take you too deep where you'll get lost. Once you go through this book, you'll be able to start work on your own site, doing your own thing - at that point you will probably want a more robust reference book for more advanced stuff.

I've not run across any 'errors', but there could be some, the book's not perfect. However the support site does have a page of corrections and updates, I didn't see any for this edition but there were a few corrections for prior editions.

Final thought- if you want some 'training wheels' to get started and practice building something, this a great choice, and a fair price for what it is.

Imagine that your new piano instructor starts you out with "Mary Had a Little Lamb" and two minutes later whips into Chopin, just to show you how wonderfully skilled he is and entirely forgetting that his primary task is to teach first concepts to a total newbie. That's the problem with the big, thick manuals (I own all of 'em). I've virtually thrown the big books across the room several times thinking, "why not just show me how to build a nice, simple site, then, AND ONLY THEN, demonstrate to me how I can make it better and more complex by doing more stuff. Just show me step-by-step how to get a web site up and running, then I can more easily understand the more complex variations. Don't first start me out on the complex variations just to stroke your own ego by demonstrating how much you know! For instance, it was only recently that I understood that Tables are not used much any more. So why am I wasting all this time reading about Tables when I should be trying to understand CSS? AP Divs are kind of intuitive, but they align only top and left and some browsers have trouble with them. Why am I wasting my time with AP Divs? I need to learn CSS, but the Big Books bury the relevant info in a ton of clutter. CSS should be at the front of the book and archaic info in the back, not the other way around. That's where this little book shines. It doesn't necessarily show you absolutely everything you need to know, but if you just follow the instructions closely and study the different dialogue boxes and panels, and play around with different commands, the "ah-ha!" moment will come and all of the sudden you will understand CSS and Divs and all the rest. Worked for me. The author begins right out of the box with CSS and later pointedly says that AP Divs won't be discussed. Hoo-ray! I'm sorry to say that this little book was the last of seven books I bought on Dreamweaver CS3 because I thought the small size denoted little value or seriousness. Wrong. Small keys unlock big doors. Now for the first time I clearly understand what CSS is all about. Buy this book to get you started, then buy a Big Book to explain it in more detail.

1.0 out of 5 stars Look elsewhere 31 Jan. 2008
By Louis Eagle Warrior - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is trash. I agree with the writer who said it's a waste of money. The explanations are unclear as were the e-mails from the author himself. Nothing works which is frustrating for a book that pretends to be a basic step by step easy to follow text.
The download was ponderous and then wouldn't even show when browsing for it in my Documents folder. The photos in the book so far don't match what you're supposed to see and I have lost much time just to get past the first few maddening pages.
There are other sources out there on this subject. Meanwhile, I wish I could have given it less than one star.
