If you are looking for a guide book that will let you build a web site from scratch in Dreamweaver CS3 this book is probably not for you. On the other hand., If what you are looking for is a straight forward easy to follow guide to creating a web site using the templates provided in Dreamweaver CS3 this book might just be what you are looking for. It could have done with more information on editing and inserting text I feel,but otherwise covers the basics pretty well . The book also includes a weblink to a site where you can download the complete set of example files for the book and also provides updates and corrections to the instructions provided in the book.
The "Visual QuickProject" range is very good, much better than average. The text is a really quite sloppy in parts. Despite this fact the communication value remains strong and retains it clarity . I would recommend this book. A better version of the this series is the "Creating a Web Site in Flash CS3". Worth buying plenty of diagrams for both OS X & Windows.
