5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for power users / non-technical admins
This is the first proper SPD2010 book and I'm pleased to say it's been worth the wait. I knew of a couple of the authors from other blogs, tutorials and the like from working with Sharepoint 2010 from the past couple of months. Its great to finally have a book out to help the non .NET developers amongst us.

1.0 out of 5 stars Incorrect step-by-step instructions
Purchased Wrox "Beginning Sharepoint Designer 2010"

There are a few errors in the book especially Chapter 6 which relies on step-by-step instructions to be correct for each additional step to work

Just wasted a morning on this Chapter as it doesn't work - im not going to waste any time pointing out the problems

This is the first proper SPD2010 book and I'm pleased to say it's been worth the wait. I knew of a couple of the authors from other blogs, tutorials and the like from working with Sharepoint 2010 from the past couple of months. Its great to finally have a book out to help the non .NET developers amongst us.

This book covers the 'no-code' type stuff that non-programmers will need in order to be able to actually do stuff with SPD2010 such as customize page layouts, UI elements and work and manipulate with webparts (including the data view web part). It does assume general web knowledge of course - HTML, CSS, Sharepoint generally, and a smattering of Javascript. But it doesn't assume you know how to write or understand XLM, CAML or XSLT which are Sharepoint's main front-end languages.

In short this book is ideal for those non-programmers actually administering and creating Sharepoint sites and content in organisations. I'd say an essential purchase for the Sharepoint power-end (but not for the technical developer so much).

Purchased Wrox "Beginning Sharepoint Designer 2010"

Just wasted a morning on this Chapter as it doesn't work - im not going to waste any time pointing out the problems

Im completely sick of buying `coding/admin' type books that are incorrect - the whole point in buying the book is so that you learn the correct techniques to employ to have a website that works `correctly'

How is this possible if the information in your books are incorrect?

Its common in a lot of programming/admin book, so this book is not alone.

If I program a website with incorrect code it doesn't work - if I then continue to program incorrect code I get the sack

Does anyone actually check the step-by-step processes in these books before wrox publishes them?

Anyway - my complaints will go on deaf ears - but ive lost count of the number of errors in books over the years, and im sick of being redirected to websites that contain the error corrections

If i buy a electronic device and it doesnt work i take it back to the shop and they give me a new one that works correctly - it should be the same with books - just make them work!!!!

Dont buy this book - spend your money elsewhere
