5.0 out of 5 stars Really useful learning tool 29 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
These kindle based classroom books are marvelous. Feeling my way through adobe Dreamweaver and all it's tools you really need a comprehensive guide to lead the way. This book covers absolutely everything that you need to know to start using Dreamweaver and build really impressive websites. The only problem i had was that Dreamweaver suite has updated from CS6 to cc and I wish I had finished the book before I updated as a few things are different and makes the fun process of learning a little annoying. Not the fault of the book - highly recommend to anyone who wants to properly learn Dreamweaver CS6. Dreamweaver cc Classroom will be released next month so if you are planning to join the creative cloud you might want to wait for the newer edition

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear and Easy to follow manual 25 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have some experience with programming but am pretty new to web design and Dreamweaver. This book consists of a series of clearly presented "Lessons" linked to exercise files from the cd. I think it would be helpful to know at least a little about html and css before starting out but the book does not make any assumptions. I really enjoyed doing the tutorial exercises and learnt a lot. The book does not cover everything Dreamweaver can do but I have been happily designing and creating basic websites since reading it. It is well thought out and written by people who seem to understand how to teach well. A great introduction to Dreamweaver.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dreamweaver is perfect for creating high-quality websites quickly! 22 Oct 2010
By CreativeMom - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have used Digital Classroom books by the AGI Creative Team in the past, and found them very user-friendly. The Dreamweaver CS5 book is no exception. Easy-to-follow lessons and excellent DVD tutorials make this book perfect for someone looking to create high-quality websites without all the mysterious behind-the-scenes coding that can feel so intimidating to the casual user. I can see myself using Dreamweaver to update websites for volunteer organizations that I work with, and if you are a business owner this could be a huge help to you, too.

One thing that I found really great (and it seems like it should be a no-brainer, but we all know that it's not) is that the index for this book is brilliantly done. Anything that I need to look up quickly is there, which is a huge time-saver.

A quick note on coding: this book certainly does not focus hard on it, but there is enough information in the lessons that I felt like I was getting a good look at what is really happening on websites. I really enjoyed the lessons that use the Split View, where I could see both what the design elements are and the code that makes them happen.

I highly recommend this book to users like me - websites are not my career, but I enjoy the creative aspect of building them. With the skills I have learned using this book, and having it at my fingertips to reference in the future, I could easily see turning this new hobby into a lucrative home business!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book for novice to learn Dreamweaver 23 Mar 2011
By DigiArtGirl - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have been trying to learn this program on an off for years using and other books. This is the first method that finally clicked. Unlike other books and tutorials, this book doesn't assume that you know anything about Dreamweaver. Watching the video tutorials, reading the book, and completing the work in the text, which goes a bit further in explanation, made me understand each way to set up graphics on a page and why you would choose one method over another. It's a very well written how-to. My favorite book is filled with sticky notes and dog-eared and now I refer to it often as I am building sites. If you are looking to learn Dreamweaver, start here.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a Great Resource 21 Dec 2010
By Ace King - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is absolutely amazing. I'm transitioning from FrontPage and this made it easy, partly due to the index, which Dreamweaver's help function doesn't include. Dreamweaver's help directs you to an online "community-based" site which can make it tough to find specific commands and topics. The book completely eliminates that frustration.

The text was clear and easy to ready, along with full-color screen captures that show exactly what's being taught. It also includes references to other topics as applicable. Some of Dreamweaver's features can be accomplished in different ways and it's good to know how they can be useful from each perspective.

The DVD was incredible. Reading the book and going thru the chapters was great, but seeing an overview of each tutorial made it even better. That sort of demonstration is invaluable. I took a local one-day class for Dreamweaver but the instructor went so quick that it was hard to keep up. The DVD covers nearly the same topics and allows you to back up and repeat parts as needed.

My only gripe is because it's a standard-type manual, the binding makes it virtually impossible to lay the book down and keep the pages open to the part I want to study. My solution, which I recommend to others, was to take the book to my local print shop and have the binding cut away and holes drilled so that I could put it into a 3-ring binder.

For someone who's never built a website before, this is a perfect guide, and even for those who have (like me) it's an amazing resource to make my sites better with a lot less effort. I'm glad I chose this book and I think you will be, too.

Of course, the great price and free shipping only added to my enjoyment.

3.0 out of 5 stars Covers a lot, but not enough detail 11 Jan 2013
By David W. Orr - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the first Digital Classroom book I've purchased, and enjoyed seeing color images instead of tiny B&W images - as so many newer books have.

My primary reason for buying this book was learning more in-depth about Fluid Grid Layouts and mobile site development. There were two chapters total - and not nearly as much "meat" as there should have been.

One issue that continues throughout the book is the constant reference on how to Copy and Paste in both Windows & Mac. Honestly, if you're doing anything with Dreamweaver CS should know how to copy & paste on your OS platform of choice. Don't waste space explaining how to do something that could have been mentioned once - at the start of the book.

There were a lot of spots in the book where, instead of providing additional information, I was directed to purchase another book or two. Really? Why isn't that information here? Especially when it pertains directly to the information being presented in the book.

One other point. When the authors are explaining where to go and open, close or select items - there is scant use of alternative fonts. This is really a big problem when there are several references in the same paragraph - but no change in font style to call your attention to a specific word - like 'menu' or 'ID'.

This book will more than likely whet your appetite for more information. However, just as the authors state themselves - you need to buy another book for that information.

5.0 out of 5 stars SO helpful! 22 Oct 2010
By Kelly B - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I just finished an internship that required me to use MACROMEDIA Dreamweaver, which is ancient. I was required to use Dreamweaver CS5 as part of a web development class. Using this book, I was able to catch up on all the new features. It was very easy to read.
