4.0 out of 5 stars Useful for kinesthetic learners 18 Feb 2006
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There's lots for people who are new to dreamweaver to learn in nice colourful pages. I use this book with my year 8 and 9 classes in school and it works well. However those who already have experience of dreamweaver will struggle to get their money worth. Only chapters on CSS and data-base websites are for more advanced learning.

The book arrived from Revival2 promptly and in very good condition. I had to pay postage but it was a lot cheaper than buying it new. Excellent Service.

5.0 out of 5 stars Learn Dreamweaver quickly without the "fluff" 8 Feb 2007
By Matthew Keefe - Published on Amazon.com
Teach Yourself VISUALLY Macromedia Dreamweaver 8 offers a little something for all skill levels. You will benefit greatly from the hands-on approach this book has to offer. Janine (the author) starts off by walking you through the basics of starting Dreamweaver and quickly moves right into how the interface is set up. After you get a primer on the interface she explains how the HTML is constructed which is split up across a few of the chapters. Each chapter focuses on a specific point, such as: Image, Links, Formatting, etc. The fact this book focuses on tables is odd for my development, but that doesn't mean it isn't valuable and it certainly is a good idea to understand the basic concepts of building a site.

The book ends off with 3 very important topics. Publishing, Maintaining and Database usage all of which will assist you in keeping your site up to date and your visitors coming back.

Overall I was very pleased with this books content and would recommend it to anyone looking to get started or for a refresher in all that Dreamweaver has to offer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to read, good starting guide 26 Jun 2008
By A. Khan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The best thing about this book is the friendly pictures and easy to read layout. All the charts and how to instructions are in color and go step by step. This is a great guide for someone just starting out to medium Dreamweaver ability. You can create a pretty decent website with this book. If you want to do more with images or other complex things, I would suggest getting a complex guide.
