4.0 out of 5 stars QuickStart Guides Dreamweaver 19 Mar. 2009
By JEFF SMITH - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
These QuickStart Guides look like a great idea. Was told about them by a friend who said they start you off just like you don't know anything about the product and walk you through the whole product bit by bit.

Wonderful idea. Will buy more of these to get myself caught up on Adobe's line.

4.0 out of 5 stars So far, so good.... 4 Mar. 2010
By WoMANtic - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I ordered this book for a class. I assumed that my instructor would reference it during class time, but he has not thus far (and we've passed mid-term). HOWEVER, because he seems more interested in design aspects and NOT application/technical aspects, THIS BOOK has been an invaluable resource. I have many books like this as it relates to the application itself -- I own the books but don't read them; this is the first time a publication has been easy enough for me digest. I am not a connoisseur of technical publications so I can't rate it in that regard, but I can say for someone who learns best when they SEE the steps, this book has helped me get over that hump in learning an application through using a written resource.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great resource for those new to web development 3 April 2010
By M. Wolf - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm far from a Geek. I fall more into the geek wana-be category. This book has a wonderful balance of in-depth knowledge / how to and this is the basics of what you need to know.

That being the case of course I want my own web site. This is an excellent reference book on how to build your own web site using Dreamweaver CS4.

Why I find this book so helpful:
1. the instructions are clear
2. contains lots of 'screen shots' to illustrate exactly what they are talking about
3. well organized
4. easy to read and understand (explains jargon but typically in side boxes so I only have to reference the info when I need it)
5. does not assume I know everything yet does not treat me like a dummy either

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the Visual I Expected 29 Mar. 2009
By R. Sherrod - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book speaks of being a visual guide for beginners and intermediate users with the promise of learning Dreamweaver CS4 "the quick and easy way". For the little the book teaches there is a lot more effective verbiage than "visual". What convinced me to buy the book was the free access to the online edition of this book (thinking there would be video lessons and such), but all that is provided is 45 days access to the same book? If you really want visual, buy a good Dreamweaver reference book(most have as many or more illustrations as this book but cover much more) and go to [...] for tons of VISUAL tutorials. I am not saying you cannot learn the basics of Dreamweaver with this book, but it is nothing visually special or quick and easy.
