Amazon.com Review

Macromedia Dreamweaver is one of the most empowering Web development tools on the market. Using it, even folks with no HTML coding experience can become productive Web designers. Dreamweaver 3 Hands-On Training is a fine companion to this application, presented in a style that dovetails nicely with Dreamweaver's user-friendly nature.

The book is a great jumping-off guide for users new to Dreamweaver. Authors Lynda Weinman and Garo Green skillfully weave hands-on exercises into general topical introductions. This means you'll learn right away about subjects like layers, for example; and, as you go, you'll find out about relevant browser compatibility issues. Its style makes the book both fast-paced and engaging--it won't bore you with what markup languages are, and the various flavors of HTML.

The accompanying CD-ROM is key. In addition to trial versions of Dreamweaver, Fireworks, Netscape, and Microsoft browsers, plus a few crucial plug-ins, it contains example files organized by book chapter. Fortunately, the exercises move along quickly, demonstrating various techniques for performing operations. In one chapter, for example, you might be asked to open Web pages individually into the program, while in another you'll be shown how to attach a "site" to the folder that contains the files and work from there.

Dreamweaver is a fun program with which to work, and this tutorial is right on the mark. Even if you're just finding your Web legs in site design and want to give Dreamweaver a whirl, this book is worth purchasing. --Stephen W. Plain

Dreamweaver 3 is the industrial strength tool to easily build web sites - period. Lynda Weinman and Garo Green have developed a wonderfully crafted tool that will teach beginners how to build and manage websites using Dreamweaver 3. Dreamweaver 3 H.O.T. is straightforward, packed with knowledge and learn-by-example exercises in a well thought out design. The supplemental materials on the CD-ROM include demos of Macromedia Dreamweaver 3, Fireworks 3, and, more importantly, QuickTime movie clips of Garo demonstrating Dreamweaver concepts. The book addresses the key methods of learning: auditory, visual and learn-by-example.
This is definitely one of the best "self-training" books I have ever purchased and I highly recommend it for the beginner who wants to learn how to build web sites with Dreamweaver 3.
It is important to note that the fundamentals of web site design, graphics design, web application development and web animation are not addressed in this book. To get these - study books on web design (Lynda Weinman as a highly rated book available on Amazon for web design) and books on Fireworks, Flash, XML, ASP, JAVA, and SQL databases.

This will be the benchmark by which I compare all other software tutorials. I first bought the Dreamweaver 3 Bible and struggled with it for about a week. It is a very in-depth reference work, and I'll keep it for that purpose, but it's not a beginner's tutorial. This one is. Most software books that I've bought with CD-ROM's should have left them out because you can usually download the most up to date demos from the web. But this book's CD has over 100M of very good Quicktime movies, and tutorial files for every chapter. I hope they write another book like this for Fireworks 3.

Lynda puts out the best books on web graphics, hands down. I muddled through on my own learning Dreamweaver and found the manual cumbersome at best. When I got this book, I learned easily all of the features I never bothered to figure out on my own. I appreciate Dreamweaver much more now that I've read her book and done the exercises in it. The QuickTime movies in the CD are also an excellent addition. I can't wait to what she does with Flash 4.0/5.0.

While recently searching for a good textbook to use in the practicum class I'm teaching this Spring at American University, I looked through almost all of current offerings on the market and finally decided on using Dreamweaver 3 Hands-on-Training.
The book offers a logical trek through the essentials of using Dreamweaver for web design. I particularly enjoyed its lengthy discussion of the site manager and how it is central to using Dreamweaver effectively (something I found lacking in most other books.) The structure of the book happened to coincide with what I believe is the best route to take when learning Dreamweaver and web design issues and fit in perfectly with the way I had planned my course. I've actually gone through the book, chapter-by-chapter and worked out all the examples and exercises and everything works as it should. Perhaps at times the instructions are overly repetitive but this is something that the more advanced students can skip over while those struggling with the material will no doubt appreciate.
I have read in other reviews that the book has at times been deemed "for beginners". I would have to disagree and say rather that designers of all levels have something to gain from this book. I'm sure that web designers working with version 2.0 of Dreamweaver will love it for the version 3.0 tips alone. I, for one, found out that I wasn't making use of the History function as well as the custom commands -- two things that have helped to speed up my development time enormously.
Highly recommended!

Format: Paperback
I got a lot out of this book. It's comprehensive, easy to understand, and the authors do a good job accommodating both Windows and Mac users.
The one drawback I had with it is that it would have been nice to have exercises/files at the end of each chapter (or possibly a mini-project at the end of every few chapters) to reinforce what was covered. Don't get me wrong, the exercises that are provided while working through each chapter are great in introducing the learning objectives, but it's difficult to know if you understand it when a recipe type format of "click here/select this" is given that walks you through it. For example, by the end of Chapter 5 the authors could provide a few basic "completed" web pages along with the corresponding files that were used to create them. The reader could then attempt to re-create the pages from scratch by using the files with the goal of ending up with a similar page. Having taught for 5 years I think these types of open-ended exercises are important for reinforcing the learning process. Otherwise it's difficult to gauge if the reader understands the objectives of each chapter.

I took a look at this book, at the request of one of my students, to determine whether or not this was a good book for a new web designer.
After looking through this book I feel you get exactly what the title says, a book on how to use Dreamweaver 3, that's it. If you are a new web designer and you are absolutely sure you will be using Dreamweaver 3.0, then buy this book. It will teach you what you need to know in order to do basic web design with Dreamweaver.
This book is not a good HTML reference book. If you are looking for a book to teach you HTML, keep looking. Dreamweaver concept is built around designing web pages by typing minimal code. If you want to design web pages without knowing what is happening in the background Dreamweaver and this book are for you.
