2.0 out of 5 stars CSS review 8 Sep 2011
By Lennart
I was expecting a book explaining the CSS on a different way than it is described on the W3Schools webbpages, but instead it is the webb pages on paper. On the webb one can try out some examples, and this same concept occure in the book also, but there is no way this can be done in the book, so the concept of putting the webb pages on a book is failing. On the W3Schools webb page it says "new books" giving me the impression that this really was new and not the webb pages on paper.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not worth buying as a book ... 6 Feb 2012
A friend of mine wanted to pick up webdesign so I tracked down some sites with free tutorials for him to read. He liked the W3Schools website the most and eagerly bought the book off Amazon without consulting with me, expecting it to go more into detail. Turns out it doesn't which is very disappointing. It has to be said that while the W3Schools website is an excellent source for beginners, it doesn't go into detail and glances over some very important elements. CSS is indeed not that hard to use nor that complex but that leaves all the more room for going into detail and if you pay this much for a book which doesn't even have the advantage that the site has to offer (a nice menu on the left and interactive exercises) you would expect there to be a little more information that the website doesn't offer.

Still, we have to applaud W3Schools for offering their content for free so you could consider this book a "donation" towards the site with the actual book as a bonus and for that I still gave this 2 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Quality Very Helpfull. 1 Oct 2010
By Camera Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I purchased the three book set and they must have improved the paper quality the cover is a nice 80# gloss cover and the inside pages are 6o# text the quality is not a factor anymore the books are about 1/2 inch thick each. The content does contain a lot of the content avaiable online but it is nice to be able read it when I am not online and it makes a great reference. I am fine with the price for what I recieved I find the w3c schools site is very helpfull and figure even if I pay an extra dollar or two I am supporting a group the helps a lot of people learn web development. I wish it was avaiable on the kindle.

1.0 out of 5 stars Manuals made of toilet paper 7 Jun 2010
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I am extremely displeased by this series.

There is nothing to say about the content. it is the free tutorial you can browse and print for free on the W3School web site (there is no added content, but the books are good companions to brush up the on-line topics).

However, the book quality is a shame (for the price). It is made of toilet paper (or the like). You can't expect to keep it and use it as a book reference, or do wear white gloves and use caution when you turn the pages.

One can expect some paper quality for a manual. A manual is not a "read & trash" novel you buy at an airport stand; well yes, these manuals are... That's a cheap trick (as in cheap paper) from w3school and Wiley to make more bucks over the customers.

I don't recommend anybody buying these books until w3school/Wiley improve the paper quality & reduce the price. If you want complete manuals for web development, you can look elsewhere for more complete, cheaper and better books.
5.0 out of 5 stars Very good investment in learning CSS 27 Oct 2013
By Richard Carter - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
View (if any) developers of apps, code or web technology appear to be able to write prose. Personally, I don't think universities require Computer Science grads to take any English or Composition classes. The end-user most times is left to trial-and-error for the learning process. (Maybe the developers just don't want to complete their work.....)

Anyway, I found this text very, very useful in aiding in the fulfillment of the missing link of documentation. I found it well-structured, understandable; and for me, well worth the price.

I recommend it.
4.0 out of 5 stars W3Schools does a Great Job 6 Sep 2013
By D. Thompson - Published on Amazon.com

I also have the book "Learn HTML and CSS" by W3Schools. Both are well written and easy to understand. I like the examples, the organization, and the way W3Schools breaks down the subject matter. Style sheets seems an excellent tool in website projects.
5.0 out of 5 stars It was a great way of Learning on HTML created by Tim-Berner Lee Thanks to him 2 May 2013
By Ricardo B. Autida Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
It was very great that I find out who is the creator of HTML that was Tim-Berner Lee. The W3C(World Wide Web Consursium) the spelling might not be correct but it was close thanks also to them because Websites are created because of them using HTML(Hyper Text Markup Language) combine with CSS(Cascading Style Sheets) and PHP. I don't know what is the meaning of it. Including the used of Javascript to give notification to users and including the Errors that which gives me idea on problems between application. I learn again the important basics of HTML and including the sign up form.
