Format: Paperback
I bought this book looking to understand the programme itself and found that in conjunction with other titles in the series it was a great way to explore many aspects of web design and development. I would expect though that if you were purely interested in Dreamweaver and were prepared to lay out the money for the software, you're probably already beyond the level of this book. 30 day free trial is good though for beginners to explore.

Weaving a dream in 24hrs! 4 Aug. 2009
By rbhatta - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
What I learnt is that Betsy Bruce is an Adobe-certified instructor for Dreamweaver, Flash, Captivate, and Authorware and John Ray is a senior business analyst and developer for the Ohio State University Research Foundation.

With these two great minds working together to teach us Dreamweaver CS4 in 24hrs is what this book all about.

The book is in full color and the layout is pleasing, The hints are clear and so are the tips for a successful learning experience. End of Every chapter has workshop associated with that and also a quiz to rate yourself.

This book is not for dummies!!! But, it does help you in understanding the complexities in Dreamweaver CS4 in clear step by step process which one can learn at their own pace

While I have not finished or mastered the full 520 pages, I am taking baby steps to learn Dreamweaver CS4 using this book.

FYI, Learning Dreamweaver CS4 in 24hrs is not completely possible that is just a marketing blurb to get people's attention, But Sam's Teach Yourself Dreamweaver CS4 does a pretty good job in attempting that.

misleading title, maybe 24 days?? 5 April 2010
By SouthernBelle - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Book is overwhelming. Full of information, but the flow and order makes understanding this topic confusing for beginners. It swaps needlessly back and forth between coding and Dreamweaver. Title is misleading in itself. Took me days just to get through the first few chapters.

from beginner to expert 13 Feb. 2010
By David Corner - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I have worked professionally with adobe dreamweaver but never took the effort to really dive into the program and learn all of its features (behaviors, sprys, etc.). It covered all of the basics and filled in all of the holes in my knowledge. Besides learning a lot of really useful time saving features it also reinforced the basics of css design within the dreamweaver environment.

I really don't understand how this book can be described as confusing as it is in my opinion one of the most systematic and modular books on the topics to get anybody up to real hands on proficiency in the least amount of time possible. This is the book which I would recommend to anybody looking to not only get their basic markup knowledge but using adobe dreamweaver as well. Highly recommended.

mediocre book at best 17 Jun. 2009
By Lani Clough - Published on
Format: Paperback
The book is missing a number of steps and is fairly confusing. I would rate it as mediocre at best. I would also recommend buying a different book to learn Dreamweaver.
