When you are buying SPD, buy this book as well - you will thank me later!
W. S. Jones
For example in several places it says that CSS styles should be contained in a <script> tag, when it should have been a <style> tag.
Matthew Hawes
I recommend the book to any aspiring SharePoint designer but, would equally recommend some grounding in WSS architecture beforehand.

I purchased this book because it was the only one on this topic available at the time. I am a beginner when it comes to SharePoint, but I am also an experienced web designer. This book is written at my level exactly, and I found it easy to learn from. However, there are some errors in it. For example in several places it says that CSS styles should be contained in a <script> tag, when it should have been a <style> tag. There are little problems like this throughout the book.

Because I am experienced with web development already, it was easy for me to see and account for the mistakes in the book.

There are grammar problems, and even I caught some misspelled words. Additionally, the practice and example files that come with the book are not very helpful.

This book was the first one available, and perhaps in a rush to have it published, it was not carefully edited. If there are other books available now, I would recommend looking into them instead of this one.

Like many tech book series, Microsoft's "Step by Step series has had its hits - and not infrequent misses. On the whole, I have found the Step By Step books to run toward the superficial, which sometimes is acceptable and sometimes not. "Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer 2007 Step by Step", however, is one of the best I've seen in this series to date.

Microsoft SharePoint is a complex platform. Newcomers get confused between the various incarnations of SharePoint. Further complicating matters are the interplay between SharePoint Designer and Microsoft's Visual Studio. Bottom line is the SharePoint universe is complex. Author Penny Coventry deals here with Office SharePoint Designer 2007 and what it does. She warns at the outset that the reader must have access to a server running Windows SharePoint Services or SharePoint Server 2007. I have seen reviews of this book criticizing the lack of a sample site on the accompanying CD. The author is clear that she does not provide the commercial software for this: if you want it, you have to buy it or otherwise have access to a running site.

Another issue is that this book is intended for the novice user of SharePoint Designer 2007, a product that has its roots in Microsoft's now discontinued Front Page 2003 product, which was intended exclusively for website design. SharePoint Designer is, in the final analysis, a programming tool with web design capabilities. Thus, the user with a programming background, especially in Visual Studio, who is looking for an introduction to SharePoint web design will be much more at home with the content of this book than will a web designer with no programming experience who is trying to learn about SharePoint itself.

This is not a bad read for novice instruction. This book does not get into as much detail as our group would have liked seeing in the first book release for this product, but it still provided some good examples and a platform to build upon.
I would definitely suggest it for new site owners that need to be able to make custom changes and do not have much of experience with this kind of product. Experienced web designers will not get much of a benefit from this book.

Fantastic instructional materials on how to use SharePoint Designer 2007 effectively! I made the mistake early on of buying SharePoint books that focused on infrastructure-related topics on SharePoint. This book provides practical and powerful insights on how to exploit the user-facing capabilities of SharePoint. I was cautious about purchasing a Step-by-Step series book due to my past experiences reading books in the series that had what I believed to be superficial content. This instance broke that mold in style. It was evident that the author not only has book knowledge of the subject, she also has practitioner knowledge. It seemed like she anticipated every question that I had as I read through the book. Excellent work!

There are different levels of publications. Many publishers print beginner-, intermediate-, and advanced-level books. The Step-by-Step series is for beginners and should be rated accordingly.

An ignorant intermediate-level reader picks up a Step-by-Step publication and rates it four stars because it was good, but beginner. Then an ignorant advanced-level reader picks up the same Step-by-Step book and rates it three stars because it was good, but too beginner. Pick on your own size and rate according to the target audience. What the hell?

OK, now a word about the content - this is a good introductory book, but requires a focused learner who has access to SharePoint Designer software and a SharePoint site. Good book, but this is not a baby topic and so a hands-on reader would gain more from it than a passive reader.

I'm a novice to SharePoint Designer so I wanted to find a book that would walk me "step by step" through the process. The content was good but what was frustrating was that the author kept referring to a fictitious company, "Consolidated Messenger..." but the files or links were not available. If a book references files that will enable you to work through scenarios, with accompanying images in the book, the reader should be able to access them.
