    Good book if you already are familar with the program, December 26, 2008

    Gwenley (Sunny and not-so-sunny California) –

    This review is from: Adobe Dreamweaver CS4 Classroom in a Book (Paperback)
    This is one of those books that can be very useful for some readers and over the heads of others. I had a little (very little) knowledge of HTML, nothing of CSS and some experience with amateur-level web design programs when I got this book.
    While the lessons were well-planned and informative, they did not feature the depth of information that a beginner like me needed. I learned features and techniques but not what made them work. Also, many of the more basic program features are vaguely mentioned in passing. Other information was simply over my head as a newcomer to the program.

    I can see that this book would be extremely valuable to someone who has used Dreamweaver before and wants to get up to date on the latest changes in the program. I think that someone with HTML and CSS experience under his or her belt could also get a lot of good information.

    As for me, I bought Head First HTML with CSS & XHTML and Dreamweaver CS4 For Dummies (For Dummies (Computer/Tech)). The former filled some gaps in my coding knowledge and the latter provided a rather thorough tour through the program designed with the newbie in mind. (It should be noted that knowing how to code is not essential for using Dreamweaver but it sure makes things easier.) Once I finish these titles, I will probably return to Classroom in a Book.

    This title is good for: People with HTML and CSS experience or with Dreamweaver experience.

    This title is not good for: Complete newcomers to web design. Try one of the books listed above instead.

    This review is from: Adobe Dreamweaver CS4 Classroom in a Book (Paperback)
    This book teaches a lot, but if you are coming into dreamweaver with no background in web design, or dreamweaver’s specific tools, it is very hard to use. He teaches you HOW to use things but not WHY and what they are. Its very hard to apply the lessons elsewhere. On the other hand, I used the CS4 Dummies book which explained why of everything, and then went back into this book to go further.

    Assumes too much knowledge for begginer, January 5, 2009

    This review is from: Adobe Dreamweaver CS4 Classroom in a Book (Paperback)
    I have a background in design for print and thought it was time to venture out and learn web design. I purchased Dreamweaver CS4 and was ready to go! I excitedly opened this book, anticipating some great revelation to the secrets of Dreamweaver CS4, CSS and HTML. I am very disappointed. I can easily follow along the book and click the buttons requested. But there is little or no explanation as to why. If you are looking for a book to tell you to “click here, change this, click OK” then you have it. If you want a book that tells you why you are doing each step, or a book that explains CSS or HTML this is not it! Look elsewhere.
