2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 21 Aug 2010
I was very disappointed in this book. I had specific points on which I needed clarification, beginners questions, and this did not provide the answers. The book is beautifully presented but written by an author who is so expert she has forgotten the questions novices ask. Screen shots show pages full of content but without telling how they got there. I think this type of book needs to clarify why you should do something rather than just telling you how to.

One side bar asked, "How do I....." and told you it was a good idea but without telling you how. Dreamweaver for Dummies, by the same author, is not so pretty but covers the same ground, with nearly the same criticisms, but is better value for money.

I actually found more help on the 'free' Adobe web site.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dreamweaver made simple 3 April 2011
By Kate Go Brightly - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has step-by-step instructions with a corresponding visual example. I find this book to be an excellent primer and resource book for Dreamweaver. Of course, just like with Photoshop, the real learning takes place when you actually use Dreamweaver and put into action what you have learned in the book.

Cons: The visual examples are on the small side, so I needed to use a magnifying glass to get a better look. Despite this negative, I stick to my 5 Star rating.

For additional free Dreamweaver teaching videos, I use Adobe TV, Lynda, and Peachpit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great beginner books 1 Nov 2011
By Jenniferguson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought the Teach yourself Visually books for both Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Dreamweaver.

These book are great at teaching you how to use these programs. If you just follow the diagrams, you will be using the features the software offers in no time. They are easy to understand, and there is very liitle text, making it easy to follow along. I definately reccomend these books to anyone looking to learn the basics about Adobe Software.

By MerryJoy - Published on Amazon.com

I am a visual learner; therefore, this book was a lifesaver for someone like me. It tells you step-by-step what to do and also has colorful pictures to correspond to the steps. I can do this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Higher Version 20 April 2012
By Geoffrey Edwards - Published on Amazon.com
This book would be pretty good if it weren't for a lower version of Dreamweaver. The problem is that there isn't anything telling you that it doesn't cover CS5.
