3.0 out of 5 stars Too many typos, January 22, 2008
This review is from: JavaScript (Paperback)
Although the content is for the most part good, I have found after just two chapters that there are so many typos (tags not closed properly, etc.) and left out content (such as CDATA statements,) the lessons end up generating JavaScript errors and don't validate, so you have to go back and modify the script on your own - not an easy task when you are just learning, since you have to research the issue using alternate resources. It appears that the author copy-and-pasted his errors into further examples. In addition, you are asked to type comments that are not explained, so you don't know why you are including them. Also, in one of the Case Projects in chapter 1, you are asked to try to fix a problem that is not addressed until Chapter 2. I am taking JavaScript as a college course, and our class is a little frustrated.
