Format: Paperback
This book is a great book for someone who is attempting to learn Web development technologies. There is so much to learn, and the flow of this book provides a great way to get started. I bought a Microsoft book because I am very much interested in learning to develop Web applications using Microsoft tools as my company is moving away from PHP and is using Visual Studio 2012. I have no plans to take the 70-480 exam but I feel that I could pass this exam after reading this book.
To help you understand the contents of this book, the following is a list of the chapters, each having a brief comment.

Chapter 1 Getting Started with Visual Studio 2012 and Blend This chapter is presented as an attempt to help the user create a working environment. Funny thing, although Blend is introduced, it isn't used. I can only guess that the author was trying to be complete about the setup of the environment because Blend installs with Visual Studio Express 2012 for Windows 8.

Chapter 2 Getting Started with HTML5
This chapter covers very basic HTML for the beginner. If you already have some HTML experience, you may choose to skip this chapter.

Chapter 3 Getting Started with JavaScript This is also a beginner chapter, but since my JavaScript skills are not too strong, I was happy to read this chapter end-to-end. This chapter also provides an introduction into Test Driven Development (TDD) using QUnit. Our company is planning on using TDD for all future projects, so I was glad I didn't skip this chapter.

Chapter 4 Getting Started with CSS3
I found that this chapter was enlightening. I simply didn't understand CSS until I read this chapter.

This book is for developers who have some experience using HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript. The book does not assume you have an experienced knowledge of the aforementioned languages, however it does assume you have some knowledge building basic web applications. If you are completely new to JavaScript, you will need to get another book to supplement your studies. I recommend "Object-Oriented JavaScript" by Stoyan Stefanov (this book is incredible!).

This book on HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript is easy-to-read, exciting, and well written. Not only did I take in a lot of useful, real-world information, I enjoyed reading the book. I second the reviewer that says being self-taught leaves some gaps in your knowledge; this book fills those gaps and then some!

I believe this book covers just about everything you need to know for the Microsoft 70-480 exam.

EDIT: I got 98% on the 70-480 exam. A word for the wise: You definitely have to know EVERYTHING in this book!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Having been working on web development projects about two years, I'm certainly not a beginner to web development. I bought this book for two reasons: (1) to help me pass the 70-480 exam and (2) to tie up all the loose ends of web development. Being self-taught, there's a lot of ground you miss, but with this book it has put together all the loose ends for me, and has really made things "click".

The pace of the book is good, there are quite a bit of details, but I've never thought to myself that I would rather stab myself with a number 2 pencil. By no means is this considered light reading, but if you want a solid foundation then this book is for you.

Being geared around the Microsoft 70-480 exam, this book uses Microsoft products for developing HTML5, CSS3, and Javascript application.

There seems to be two aspects of this book that are its strengths or weaknesses, depending on your focus.

First, the book uses Microsoft products. If you work in a Microsoft environment, then this is a strength. Visual Studio is used almost exclusively throughout the book. Although there is one small exercise using Blend, the decision to use Visual Studio seems most appropriate as this is what would be used in a real world situation. If you don't work in a Microsoft environment and don't want to download the tools, then this book is not for you. The book recommends that you have Windows 8 installed in order to create Modern UI style applications, which are now known as Windows Store applications, and at one time were known as Metro-style applications because that is a Visual Studio requirement. As it turns out, there are only a couple of exercises that require Windows 8. Most of the exercises use Visual Studio and are based around building Web applications.

Second, this book is taylored to help the user pass the 70-480 exam. Although the exam contents are covered throughly this book, the exam and this book are intended to prepare you for a real world environment.

I especially liked the exercises in the book. They were bite-size and easy to understand. The exercises also help me to understand the concepts that were covered.

I find myself asking how HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript can be covered effectivly in a single book. Why not get a book for each subject?
