I bought this book as a companion reference book to the Adobe Dreamweaver CC Classroom in a Book which I have just worked through. This Dummies book has a comprehensive index at the back and is therefore useful for checking some detail that you may have forgotten. Being printed on semi-gloss paper, the colour illustrations are superlative. The author herself writes "You don't have to read through this book cover to cover ... [it is] a quick study guide and a reference you can return to", and she has got this exactly right.

As a beginner to Dreamweaver, I do not think I could have learnt Dreamweaver from this book alone, nor do I think the author intended this. However, having finished and set aside my Classroom in a Book, I have been referring to this book and the Adobe web site every time I need to check some detailed point.

Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Pretty Good Source of Information. 5 Aug. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you are a complete beginner, I would imagine learning Dreamweaver CC could be a fairly daunting prospect. You really would not have a clue where to start.

The majority of the web design industry seems to have the hump with Adobe since it switched from the "buy-our-software" model to the new "rent-our-software" scheme. I don't know if this is the reason but if you search YouTube for Dreamweaver CC tutorials there are very few indeed. Compare this to the older Dreamweaver CS6, their last DVD-ROM-in-a-box release. There are scores of tutorials for that.

In fact, the only video available for a while was one promoting this Dummies book. Consequently, lacking any other cheap means of learning the software I bought the Kindle version.

I should declare an interest, I am quite a fan of the Dummies series. This must be about my 10th purchase, including books about previous versions of Dreamweaver. I am writing this short review therefore from the perspective of somebody who wanted detailed instructions on anything which is new or has changed from the last version. I am not wet behind the ears with Dreamweaver.

With a fair bit of searching, in the last 3 weeks or so, I have successfully managed to find all the information I need. The explanations were fairly clear to me but, as mentioned, I am not a beginner.

My main criticism is that the assumption is made that every reader is a total novice. It would have been nice to have a short chapter for designers who know previous versions inside out. People who just want to know where the old buttons and favourite tools are located in the new version.

Having listened to my husband's frustration with getting round the new Dreamweaver, I ordered this book & he is absolutely delighted so far. It's a powerful programme & this book should help to explain how to use it.
