By Andre Lawrence TOP 1000 REVIEWER
The "Teach-Yourself-Series," by Wiley Publishing is a visual-learning type of instruction book. This type which could be considered a kind of classroom-in-a-book" more than the more widely available, basic tutorials or an instruction/ glossary book (i.e., The Dummies) whose purpose is to tell what tools are available and their function as opposed to one which is geared toward application and participation.

The benefit of this kind is that it's easy to follow along in the chapter because you have hundreds of full-color snapshots and diagrams that reveal just how a screen should look. Also, these kinds are visually, pardon me, VERY visually appealing.

The drawback, and it should be pointed out, is that all too often more detailed information is sacrificed. A thorough understanding of the application is critical if a problem were to arise. Because everything is taught by diagrams and pictures and there's very little text (explanation), the learner doesn't have the foundation in the intimate experience with the text to backtrack and problem-solve.

Having said all of that, this is the purpose of visual-learning aids to assist in rote/memory learning. And, concerning the most important aspect of Dreamweaver-- coding/ CSS-CSS2-- this is priceless.

There's a discussion on coding and the corresponding placement of items in a sheet but there are no chapters specifically for learning the various codes. For that I'd suggest the free "W3Schools dot com" that is a great resource and one that benefits with printed materials (like this book) and vice-versa.

The Breakdown--
* beautiful, 300-page, 15-chapter book
* chapter and color-tabbed
* each "lesson" is only a 2-page layout.
* sidebars, highlights key points.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is simply the best book for a beginner 5 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a beginner to DW I can't really fault this book. The structure is excellent and the step by step examples are just great as well. I've come on leaps and bounds by following the step by step examples within the book, which are compiled with clear screen shots and clear steps for you to follow, as well as loads of great tips. This simply has to be the best book out there for a beginner to DW CS6.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Non Intimidating Introduction 21 Sep 2012
By A. D. Lum - Published on
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Dreamweaver, especially the latest and greatest, is a very powerful and potentially intimidating tool. If you're pretty much a newbie at website creation and you want to slowly go from there to "pretty good", then this is the start you need to avoid quitting in frustration.

If you have dabbled with websites before, you can probably leapfrog this book.

OK, if you're still with me, you're a beginner and I recommend this book for you. This book has three great "features". It covers the full gamut of web site creation. It does not go into great detail in any one area, but it allows you to get a taste and get your toes wet across the full spectrum of what it takes to bring up a website using Dreamweaver CS6. The second "feature" is that it walks you through things step by numbered step. The last thing is that it is in color. For me anyway, color graphics are much easier to follow than black and white shots.

Here's a weird analogy which I hope you will understand. Some video games are REALLY complicated. So much so in fact, that in a few minutes, you might quit in frustration. Then along comes a simple manual. It teaches a full range of things and does so in a very simple way, but doesn't go into much depth. You learn how to make the character walk forward, turn to the left, then turn to the right. It shows you how to make the character fire his weapon (never mind that his weapon has 58 different settings). It teaches how to get around simple obstacles, etc.. After a while, you can get along on your own. You know enough to get around and after that you learn on your own and/or pick up a more detailed manual.

That's the kind of niche this book fills. It gets you going and covers a wide range (just not in great detail relative to the product's full capabilities). It gets you past the frustration point - to the point where you can swim on your own and are ready and eager to learn more. You're not ready for the Olympics yet, but you're doing laps all by yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Guiding Your Way Through Adobe's Web Design 10 Sep 2012
By Nash Black - Published on
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Janine Warner's DREAMWEAVER CS6 is an excellent pictorial tour through Adobe's complex program for creating your own website. A basic knowledge of design principals and HTML should give you an understanding of the steps involved for website construction.
Plan your site on paper, gather all the components before you begin, secure your domain name, have a fundamental understanding of Adobe's InDesign & Photoshop programs, then shut off the TV & unplug your cell-phone for at least a week.
There is no short cut unless you have someone else do it for you, there again you must be able to explain yourself to your designer.
Give yourself time to explore each exercise and the illustrations. Dreamweaver is not an overnight sucess program, but Ms. Warner's volume will hold your hand with the basics.
Save your work in several places and make a hard copy of each page. Make a couple, cut them up and move them around for a well-balanced look. Understand the value of white space and how it affects your audience.
Now if publishers would create spiral bindings where the pages lie flat and do not glare, but those problems are not the author's responsibility.
Good Luck, we're still working on our websites.
Nash Black, author of SANDPRINTS OF DEATH.

1.0 out of 5 stars Teach simple topics in complex way 30 Nov 2013
By jack - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book based on the great reviews from others. But this book is not good for a beginner who wants a step-by-step guide.
The book organized not by steps of how to do something. Instead it just post a finished page with pictures and many texts, and what you do cannot match the pictures. The book is also not a good reference because it did not teach you advanced topics. So what does this book teach? It teaches simple topics with complex/confusing writing and pictures. This is not helpful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very basic introduction 6 May 2013
By Dave Schwartz - Published on
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I've been using Dreamweaver for a while, so I'm not really the target audience for this book, which is a very basic introduction to the web-editing software.

TEACH YOURSELF starts at the beginning by explaining exactly what the "world wide web" is. Then it's time to start the program, so the book tells you how to do that in three steps"

1. Click Start

2. Click All Programs

3. Click Adobe Dreamweaver CS6

And so on, TEACH YOURSELF walks you through every step of creating a website using Dreamweaver. By the middle of the book, you'll be into more complicated stuff like CSS.

It's a very good, very basic introduction to using the program that will certainly help novice users; intermediate users may want to use the book for a reference or just a reminder of what the program can do.

I liked this for a quick read, but it doesn't have enough detail to make it really useful for learning Dreamweaver, HTML, or CSS
