I have used many video training packages to learn PS, DW and Flash software and Video2Brain is the best of all. I started learning PS to improve my digital photography and I couldn't stop there and started learning the rest of Adobe.

The trainers of this package are must be two of the best in the field. Their understanding of CS4 and teaching methods are excellent. Examples are also excellent and you will never feel board. At the end I have improved my understanding in DW so much now I have started HTLM and CSS in the intermediate level.

The price of the video is only a fraction of the other packages in the market and and the quality is superior.

I advise any one interested in DW to start with this training and you will never lose interest in DW.

This video is highly accessible, user-friendly and more importantly, highly pertinent to the curriculum requirements of the ACA Web Design examination. The presenters have a soft and personable touch not often found in technical training videos and their level of communication is just right for those who might find the many features of Dreamweaver daunting. As suggested by an earlier reviewer, the video should be researched in tandem with the "Classroom in a Book" text (I used he video after this text) and the Test Items in the video prepare you for the exam( Adobe do not appear to offer practice tests off-the-shelf). I strongly recommend this video.

Presenters pace their content well and make it appear straightforward. After 2 or 3 days we felt competent to write our own web site using Dreamweaver. Good support too.

HASH(0x97b1faa4) out of 5 stars The Only Way to Learn Dreamweaver CS4 18 Mar. 2010
By Frank Stepanski - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have been using Dreamweaver off and on for a number of years. I know the basics but havent really had the time to really sit down and learn it. A number of books I have purchased cover the material decently, but take too long to get to the point. Being a teacher, I feel that is important to explain the relevant points in an easy to understand manner but as quickly as possible otherwise you will lose your audience. Since I am a student in learning new technologies I try to look for tools that teach me in that manner as well. Of course there are not many tools that do that.

I have also looked at many other video tutorials on Dreamweaver CS4, I still they are not complete in all the topics to be covered in the subject.

This DVD personally, is the best of both worlds in learning Dreamweaver CS4. It covers all the beginning to intermediate topics of Dreamweaver CS4 with a book and excellent videos in an amazing looking interface. I use the Flash CS4 DVD for my class, and if I taught Dreamweaver CS4 (I may in the future), I would definitely use this DVD as my only course material.

Each topic is covered in the book and had multiple video topics (organized beautifully) that supplement each one. Along with quizzes and reference material too. I wish these DVDs came out years earlier, it would have saved me so much wasted effort trying to use inferior books/videos. I hope more Adobe and web-based topics are covered in future DVDs as I will use them for any class I teach.

A must buy for anybody wanting to learn (or teach) Dreamweaver CS4.

HASH(0x97bbe378) out of 5 stars Best Training Material for Dreamweaver Cs4 26 Mar. 2010
By hurricane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is the best video/class I have yet to experience. Very hands on with grading and awesome video quality. Ms. Stryker is a great personality. The other instructor you wonder if she is really breathing but she too gets the job done. You get a sound understanding of main features. I would have love some more info on spry & widgets. This allowed me to be way ahead of the class I was taking. Dare I say ahead of the teacher who was not yet up to date on features in cs4. If you are making a choice DONT BUY THE the other ONE By TOTAL TRAINING. JANINE WARNER SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF PUTTING OUT SUCH AN ELEMENTARY PRODUCT THAT TEACHES ONLY CHILD LIKE/UNPROFESSIONAL sites. You will be so irritated by what she calls the chocolate game. I liked it so much I am looking for a video by same company for flash and photoshop. Good Luck.
HASH(0x97b9cf78) out of 5 stars quick easy lessons 28 July 2009
By W Boudville - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The video and accompanying booklet are a nifty way to quickly pick up the basics of the latest Dreamweaver version CS4. En route, you also learn in a straightforward way the most common HTML tags, and how to use CSS to factor out styles from your HTML files. At the highest level, you get to see how to define a common look for many of the files in a website.

The lessons drill down from there into the using of Dreamweaver for a particular file [=web page]. Each lesson is short; rather bite sized, as opposed to the typical massive chapters of a book on an entire programming language. (Take a look at many books on C++, C# and java, for example.) What you find is that Dreamweaver provides a rich user interface that makes it easy (and maybe even fun!) to layout HTML elements in a page.

Adobe being Adobe, they wrote Dreamweaver to incorporate image editing abilities typically found in pure programs dedicated to that subject. (Think Photoshop.) So one lesson gives simple image tweaks that you can do; without having to go fully into Photoshop.

Ditto for editing Flash animation files.

Please keep in mind that the video (and its booklet) really only touch on the main points of Dreamweaver. If your budget can stretch for it, consider getting the authoritative text by Adobe on Dreamweaver, Adobe Dreamweaver CS4 Classroom in a Book. When you have assimilated the video lessons and are comfortable with more details, the latter book may prove helpful.

Book Review by Pasha Parvaneh

I am a college professor and teach and write curriculum for IT courses into Print and Digital programs using Adobe Design Applications such as InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver and Flash. In such a changing field I need to keep updated at all times to be at least one step ahead of my students.

Recently I have been updating my Dreamweaver CS3 and writing a new curriculum for Dreamweaver CS4 for a post secondary college into Graphic and Web Design 2 year Diploma Program and used Adobe Dreamweaver CS4, Learn by Video to see "what's new!" I honestly enjoyed the video and the instruction booklet that came with it. I found it very well organized and easy to understand even with having no prior knowledge about web designing. However, I have two comments that might be useful:

First One: To make the lessons more understandable especially for the new users, it would be nice to have the first lesson to explain what the application is for and the lingo used in the instructions.

Second One: I like to store my learning CD in the original package along with the book that comes with it so they don't get lost in my library. I found it too difficult to take the CD out of the package and insert it back in after using if I did not want to damage the package.

This video covers most of Dreamweaver, it's a good start in learning the program. One should also know HTML and CSS when creating websites which you'll have to research and learn with other teaching devices.
