4.0 out of 5 stars a Good buy 24 Feb 2006
I recently bought the studio 8 package and since I haven’t ever used any of the programs I needed a book to guide me. First I bought how to use Dreamweaver 8 and Fireworks 8, which is very colourful book but was too messy for me. So I had to buy an another book so I bought this book. The only thing I don’t like about this book is that it’s black and white. Well at least my colourful pens standout from the text. I have been now working with this book and it’s so much better. I have so far read 4 chapters and like the book very much. Of course I’m a bit slow as I read and do my www-site at the same time. But my verdict: good buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Has some Gems in it 19 Oct 2007
Has easy to use advice. Can be used by sections and no need to read from cover to cover. No need for deeper understanding of dreamweaver functions. Good for beginners.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Guide to Getting Started in Dreamweaver 1 Jan 2006
By Keith E. Webb - Published on
A few weeks ago I switched from Adobe GoLive to Dreamweaver 8 and bought this manual to help me make the transition. I've been working with the book (and Dreamweaver 8) for two weeks now. There isn't anything that I expected to be able to do that I couldn't find instructions for in "How to Do Everything".

When I began I literally has never even seen Dreamweaver in action. I looked up how to create a site - there it was. I looked up how to create new pages, found instructions and ran into some template pages Dreamweaver included. Easy. It was a bit scant on creating the functioning of forms, but most consumers will ask for help with forms anyway. Next, I want to dive into adjusting the CSS (what MS Word calls "styles"). I see the chapter in "How do Do..." and will tackle that next week!

I should also note that I'm using Mac OS X and not MS Windows. There's a disclaimer at the beginning of the manual stating that all the illustrations are for Windows, but so far I haven't found anything that didn't line up exactly with the Mac version.

Overall, it's a helpful book with enough information to guide me through building and publishing my first Dreamweaver site in only a few days, but not too much information that I'm lost looking for anything.

Buy this book if you're looking for an easy guide to producing and publishing your web pages in the industry standard: Dreamweaver.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Work 2 Dec 2005
By SoftwareTech - Published on
The author has hit his mark with this work. Targeted to the beginner through intermediate, this is an excellent work. The problem with most technical writings is that one needs to know the material in order to use the reference. Not this one. The content, sequence, style, and illustrations employed in the presentation of Dreamweaver should speed comprehension of the material. Shortcuts and tips help shorten the time to real work.

Once proficient, save the book for later reference.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Reference 5 Dec 2005
By A. Boesch - Published on
This is a great reference guide for new and experienced users of Dreamweaver. Being familiar with HTML and other web design applications, such as Frontpage and GoLive, I found the transition to Dreamweaver much easier with the help of this reference. The book includes all the steps needed to walk through a beginner, as well as great coverage of the tools that help to expedite the advanced production (templates, style sheets, multimedia). The tips throughout for best practices on good web design and the knowledge gained throughout each section will go a long way in minimizing the burdens associated with changing the look of a website, collaborating changes with others and publishing/maintaining the live site.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bit disappointed 18 Jan 2007
By R. Peterson - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is probably a decent book for someone without any web skills or has never used an interface similiar as this (as I have). I purchased this book along with the DW Bible and found as this is perhaps a good getting started book, it was light on overall material. The author presented the archaic method to HTML pages first (I thought this was odd) before presenting the newer CSS style.

Its a decent book but the bible is much better.
5.0 out of 5 stars Good Beginner Book 2 Jan 2008
By D-Weave - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I had never used dreamweaver 8 or any other similar program prior to getting this book. It was very helpful when used as a reference while completing some of the Macromedia/user's guide tutorials. CSS and layers explained well.
