The Book that MUST be in the Box,
This review is from: Dreamweaver CS4: The Missing Manual (Missing Manuals) (Paperback)
This book is essential for any prospective 'Dreamweaver'. While I appreciate the highly contextual 'Classroom in the Book' series Adobe authorises and promotes, I really would urge all those intersted in the CS4 (whether for 'Associate/Expert/Trained or purely non-certification purposes) to go through this book FIRST (in fact, you might not need another text or multimedia form) It's 'low' context and highly accessible language explains each and every aspect of an application that is quite daunting even for those with Macromedia experience. Those new to web design will learn 'hands-on', making learning much easier, and once you pick -up the techniques, you'll just want to carry on. Those with experience will find this text enlightening as it has separate boxes for 'power - users'. As the author suggests, the Dreamweaver CS4 application should be downloaded and the tutorials that complement the book and ones essential for buliding your site while you work through the book can be downloaded free. I wouldn't want any to think I have any vested interest in providing such a positive feedback - I do not know the authors or publishers but I'd like to think I know a good book.
