4.0 out of 5 stars It's Just What It Says... And It Does What it Says... 25 Mar. 2011
By David Kirk - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book title specifies that it uses visual techniques to teach you Dreamweaver; it doesn't state that it teaches you about the Internet or the fundamentals of HTML. To fully appreciate the strength of the book, you should have first created a simple HTML page, preferably with a text editor so that you grasp the concepts of the HTML meta language. From that basic knowledge, you are better prepared to appreciate what this book offers. And the book offers a lot. No, it will not make you a webpage guru; that comes from lots of experience and studying more complex texts. And, you need to understand how you learn. If you learn by seeing a task performed, then this is the best alternative to having an instructor by your side, stepping you through the keystrokes.

The book is not a primer; the early parts of the book do explain the workings of HTML and the makings of a webpage, but the strength of the book is that the chapters are built around answers to questions you will be asking as you build a page. Need a form? The instructions are there. Want to build with frames? The instructions are there. The same goes for building tables, creating links, setting colors and many other topics. However, YOU are the one who must have decided on what you want to do. This book helps by showing how to do it. And isn't that what you want the book for? I have not read my copy cover to cover and see no point in that. Instead, I use the book when I'm wanting to do something and need some visual examples on the doing of it. For that, I find the book priceless.

Although I find the book useful, I also have a copy of the same book that was developed for Dreamweaver MX 2004 - and the two are fundamentally the same except that chapter 13 has been renamed and somewhat reworked. For the minor differences, if you already have the MX 2004 book you may not find the CS4 book necessary. Remember, the book isn't to teach you everything, but to help you take quick advantage of Dreamweaver's features.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still Dreaming in Dreamweaver 3 Mar. 2012
By Robert Sanabria - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Like in so many self-help books and tutorials, this one also lacks an insight into what a beginner really needs: a step by step approach to successful mastery of the subject. For example, the chapter on setting up a web page skips from the blank page to manipulating an image and text without explaining how to get the image onto the blank page. Hence, I'm still looking for a way through the fog.

2.0 out of 5 stars Confused 10 Dec. 2009
By R. Stanley - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This would have been more helpful if it had presented the steps to creating a web site a little more linear. Too much detail about advanced topics thrown out too soon. This was bewildering to me, a complete beginner. I have given up on it for now in favor of a for the Dreamweaver For Dummies web creation book.

This book is definitely easy to follow and understand. Doesn't confuse you with coding and a lot of unecessary info. Great for beginners.
