5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Guide for FrontPage 2002 23 Aug 2001
By "pkrajan" - Published on Amazon.com
The book FrontPage 2002: A Beginner's Guide by Kirupa Chinnathambi will be a boon for both beginners as well as experienced persons. Integrated throughout the book are many learning tools that facilitate easy learning of the concepts as well as techniques. Goals at the beginning of the chapters, Hints, Notes, 1-minute drills, Ask the Expert items, Mastery Checks and Cautions are all well thoughtout techniques that will assist any one interested in mastering the FrontPage 2002. At the end of each chapter is a project which provides a comprehensive training in the use of the techniques learned in the chapter.
The book has been written in a very easily readable style. At the same time, it contains almost everything about FrontPage 2002; nothing important is left out. The author's experience on designing webpages clearly shows in the chapter on webpage design. It is an excellent way to teach the techniques of building a good webpage by comparing two sites and bringing out the good features of each. As a long time educator of technical subjects, I can easily see the effectiveness of this superb writing.
The discussions on such advanced topics as animation, web components and interactive forms make this book suitable not only for beginners but also for experienced persons. Overall, this is a comprehensive book, excellently written with the reader in mind. It should be in the hands of any one who wants to learn FrontPage 2002.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great FrontPage book for All Users 6 Dec 2001
By DHTML Dude - Published on Amazon.com
Mr. Chinnathambi wrote an excellent book regarding Microsoft's FrontPage 2002. I bought this book upon reading the excellent reviews, and I could not be more happy that I did. As long-time fan of HTML and Web programming, I was amazed at how much FrontPage 2002 can accomplish quickly. This book helped me greatly in conquering all of FP's features.
Upon reading Mr. Chinnathambi's book, FrontPage 2002: ABG, I learned about many features, tips, and techniques that I never knew FrontPage even had supported such as server side includes, asp database queries, and more. This book does a wondeful job at presenting information concisely. I had a question and e-mailed the author himself, and he was more than kind enough to respond back with a thorough reply that solved my problem.
If you are looking for a great book that combines great information and top-notch help, I highly recommend this book for anyone. Beginners will enjoy the step-by-step information, intermediate users will enjoy the editing information, and advanced users will enjoy the information on databases, external css files, and more!

5.0 out of 5 stars FrontPage2002: A Beginner's Guide by Kirupa Chinnathambi 14 Aug 2001
By Gowrishankar - Published on Amazon.com
Kirupa Chinnathambi has written a wonderful book on FrontPage 2002. This book, aimed clearly at beginner/intermediate Web developers, covers all the features of FrontPage thoroghly. Unlike many of the books I have seen about FrontPage 2002, this book guides the reader by helping them master FrontPage by following step by step examples. Within two days, I was able to learn how to use FrontPage to create a Web site.
The question and answers and mini-quizzes ensure that you have gained all that the author wanted you to know from that chapter. I highly recommend anybody interested in learning about FrontPage to give this book a shot. It will really help you to learn FrontPage 2002.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy way to learn FrontPage 16 Sep 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I have read many books about the Internet and Web development, but this book was one of the best. The examples are easy to understand, and many of the questions that I had about features in FrontPage 2002 were answered clearly. The chapter (module) that contained information about all of the FrontPage Web Components alone is worth buying this book. The entire book nicely combines design and information with source files and colorful examples created by the author himself! This will be one of the best books aimed at teaching beginners like me FrontPage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Examples, Great Content, Great Book! 9 Mar 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I don't normally post reviews on items, but this was the first time a book that I read actually fulfilled its purpose of teaching me FrontPage. I have had no prior experience in creating a Web site with the exception of a free site I maintained in my spare time. I was looking into improving my skills in design, and this book really helped me out by teaching the program we call FrontPage! If you are looking for a great book to get started in Web design using FrontPage, this book written by Kirupa Chinathambi is an excellent addition.
What I liked about this book is the varied examples. A lot of the beginner guide books use the same or similar mundane examples and force people to learn from them. FrontPage 2002 A Beginner's Guide uses a variety of examples, color schemes, and more beyond the repetitive default MS provided themes. Best of all, Kirupa teaches you how to create the examples in a "recipe" like format with clear step-by-step instructions.
In short, this book was interesting to read. The author has a bright sense of humor , and some of the examples in the book reflect that. Complementing the humor is the rock-solid content and examples. The author is very familiar with FrontPage, and one look at this book's Web site shows the author's deep understanding in design and FrontPage. Interspersed throughout the book are the Author's comments and Tips and Notes that teach you new methods of doing old tricks, explain unclear features, and tell you why things work the way they work.
Get this book! It is the best book on FrontPage 2002 for newbies that I have read.
