I'm using this book for a class and I'm finding it incredibly frustrating. It shares a common flaw with a lot of computer books in my opinion which is bascially that it is full of step by step instructions but little to no explanation of how or why these steps work. You can mindlessly follow the exercises but you don't come away with any understanding of how to deviate from those steps if you want your page to look different from the example. Each chapter is 1-2 pages of "big picture" overview, which isn't helpful because it's so general & vague, and then a set of exercises, which are good for referring back to if the skill you need happens to be one of the ones they covered in the exercises. The most helpful parts are the sidebar paragraphs, which tell you more generally what to do but keep it specific to this program. Otherwise, I hate it.

As an intermediate user of Dreamweaver and other Adobe products I find the Revealed series to be very insightful. With lots of graphics and picture walk-throughs, they do an outstanding job of logically explaining the features and usage of the Adobe products. I use these books and its almost like having an instructor right there with you.

My only gripe is that my experiences using them in college classes have been confusing because the book really does a great job in and of itself but most professors are not willing to play the role of supporter, they feel like they have to do more. That has screwed up my classes because even though following the book is adequate for Certification, teachers rarely trust the textbooks they issue.

I honestly believe that if you know anything about web design and you simply follow this books instruction you will be at the intermediate to expert level in under a month.

I also had to do some exercises out of this book for a class, and I got very frustrated as well. The layout of the book is very clumsy. For one thing, there are no page numbers. Just numbers related to the chapter. I find my self getting very frustrated just trying to find the right page. It feels like it jumps around a lot, and I don't see the continuity. This book does explain a little more of why the hell you are doing something than the Adobe books, but at least the Adobe books aren't too clever for their own good.

This is the required textbook for a class at UW. I like it. I like the shape and binding; it is the right size to be flopped open in front of my keyboard. I like the diagrams and figures; it is very colorful and cheerful. (Though my copy does have printing issue for some of the images - the colors are not aligned - it should have failed QA at the plant, but got shipped anyway. Shame on the publisher.) The book gives step by step instructions on using the software. Sure, you can muscle through the exercises without learning them. However, if you follow the exercises and think about the exercises, while switching back and forth into code view to see what the software is doing, you can learn HTML at the same time you are learning to use this highly complex piece of software. The book follows a logical building block approach. Be warned, you cannot bounce about based on topic. For example, you cannot go to chapter 9 on collecting data with forms unless you are completely comfortable with chapters 1-8. In each chapter, there is some reinforcement of the previous chapters, but each chapter is not a stand alone. You must use the book chapter by chapter. I like this about the book. It is logical. I don't care for the "For Dummies" series, which makes each chapter a standalone. They have too much repetition for me. This book is just right if you want to learn the DREAMWEAVER SOFTWARE. If you want to just poke about learning html, try Head First HTML with CSS & XHTML.

FYI.

textbooks.com is awesome, I received my order in a timely manner and it was very well packaged.

This book, on the other hand, is rubbish. The entire CS5 Revealed series is just poorly made. The formatting is sloppy, but the real problem is that most of the examples skip some important steps; I guess they assume you already know stuff despite the fact that you are reading a book to learn it in the first place... Only buy these books if you are taking a course that requires them, otherwise you can use a plethora of online tutorials to sharpen your CS5 (or 6) skills; most of which are provided by adobe.

Usually, I never have problems with buying used books. However, this one wasn't that banged up. That's not the problem here -- the problem is that it didn't come with a disc and I wasn't made aware that it wouldn't. The book got here a little later than expected, which is fine, but I will have to do all my work due this Monday ON the day itself (I don't own Dreamweaver at home, so I do all of my work at school). Without the disc, I've been put into a slight panic. Hopefully I can ask a classmate without attracting his attention (he frowns upon book/disc sharing - no idea why).
