There is also a free iPhone app available to help you with chapter quizzes and exams. If you read the material, do the hands-on, and practice test with the iPhone quiz engine then you should have no problem getting an A in your class. (I did!)
However, the book is still great if it is not being used as a textbook. I'll use it as a reference in the future.
Also, because this book was written at a time where XHTML and HTML5 are both rather popular, the how-to portions are a bit split between the format of both.
There are a lot of exercises which provide great practice, and the case studies at the back of each chapter are a great review. The book also provides numerous links to other sites where you can get more information.
Overall it is a great book but it has its rough spots.
If you are already well versed in the two areas then don't bother buying this book.
This really is a book for the basics. You can easily find the same information online amongst the tutorials. Having said that, if this is a required text for your class then don't hesitate to purchase this as its a very good resource.
