I think this is a great book for beginner using Dreamweaver.
Micael Montesdeoca
As for the actual book... it seems very basic and you could probably pick up everything in the book from the dreamweaver tutorial's on adobe's website.
MK
I have used many of the classroom in a book training manuals to teach myself, but this one isn't very good for a beginner.

The CS4 Classroom in a book sucked eggs. I would hand it out as a parting gift to my students.

This CS5 version has been completely re-written. I will actually use this book when I teach my Dreamweaver classes from now on. I'm an Adobe Certified Instructor. The lessons in this book cover all the basics beginners need to know. It covers lots of basic questions about HTML and CSS. There are better books out there for intermediate users, but for someone just getting started with no clue about HTML, CSS and Dreamweaver, I highly recommend this book.

This book is just 'okay' for Dreamweaver. Keep in mind the book is not necessarily for web building novices. If you already are familiar with the process of building a website, but new to Dreamweaver, then this book covers the basics for you. The examples used in the book are mediocre at best and the beef I have with it is that it forgoes explanations and just gives you instructions to do this or do that. Why something is done in a certain way is mostly missing.

I agree with another reviewer who said there were errors in the book. You'll find them mostly in the later chapters, however, I don't have much issues with those. By the time you get to those, you should have enough of a knowledge to correct them by yourself.

Bottom line is, I am neither overly satisfied nor disappointed in this book. But, for those who want something comprehensive, there are definitely better choices out there.

I bought this book and Flash-CIB from Adobe and while the Flash book was error free, this book was not! Two totally different directions in each book. If I could do it again, I'd try another DW book before getting this one! Lesson 14 is a disaster!

Book Errors:

1. A bunch of typos - including a section that starts off explaining how important being precise is in coding and then they make a typo in the coding themselves 3 steps later!!! And alot of the typos are in the coding (That alone should be a warning sign!!) And there's even a section that repeats the same sentence twice back to back.

2. Wrong URLs - towards the second half of the book, the book gives several URLs for more reference - about 80% of them did NOT work! So you're left in the dark.

3. Wrong images - some images dont match what is being said or seen on screen

4. Lesson 14 is totally screwed up in several ways - they should have titled it "Hey rookie - troubleshoot this section on your own!" -- the kicker is that its not a troubleshooting section, its about working with online data. Even the final sample preview page on the disk was wrong!!! Good Luck!

Some other problems I had with this book

-- You set up a styled list, delete it several chapters later, do it again a different style, delete that version chapters later, and create a new style of list - so you spend about a 1/4 of the book working on how to make a list look 3 different ways! Waste of time! Would have preferred to learn a better trick!

This book works out well, but Chapter 14: Working with Online Data doesn't work. The sample finished file doesn't display the tables correctly, and when you're finished, yours won't either!

In theory, I'm a fan of the Adobe Classroom in a Book series. I used the CS4 books (all of them), and while there were a few errors here and there, overall it was a pleasant experience.

I wish I could say the same for Dreamweaver CS5 Classroom in a Book.

Things were good until Chapter 14, then the whole process just fell apart. I wasted probably four hours trying to realize what I was doing wrong, and then I went online and saw similar issues with other users. There are similar problems with the remaining chapters (15 - 17).

It's too late to get my money back, since I've had it a couple of months and marked up the text extensively. The first thirteen chapters are pretty helpful, but I cannot recommend the book because of errors in the last few chapters. I would look elsewhere for an introduction to Dreamweaver CS5.

My first impression is that there are a number of typos and missing/changed references that should have been caught by someone at the publisher in review. However, if the reader is really paying attention they will be able to fix them on their own. Other than perhaps the HTML based Spry data set example in Chapter 14, which didn't work at all, though I'm not sure that is a problem with the example in the book or with Dreamweaver CS5 itself.

Despite the poor QA review by Peachpit/Adobe Press (the publishers of the book), the book does what it sets out to do, which is teach you to use Dreamweaver CS5. There is a lot of content and it is presented well, though I found it odd that it didn't cover some of the basics like use of rulers and guides to help with design. It is not as detailed as the DW CS5 missing manual, but it is meant more as a tutorial than a reference, and as such, it is a good launching point for new Dreamweaver users.
