REVISED EDITION update!!,
This review is from: Adobe GoLive CS Classroom in a Book, Revised Edition (Paperback)
I have never used the original version of this book/CD, but I purchased the Revised
Edition (printed in late August 2004) and everything has been perfectly clear so far. It appears that many changes were made between printings, because the consistency between the book and the included CD has so far been faultless, typo-free, and error-free. I'm through 5 of 13 lessons, and every step of every lesson so far has occurred exactly as indicated in the text, and all files on the CD have been found in exactly where the book says they should be. Looks like Adobe read all of the bad press here and did something about it by giving us this revised edition in which all the errata seems to have been corrected (so far).
I have prior experience with HTML design and with computer programming, but neither before in an Adobe environment. I find the text to be VERY easy-to-follow, and I am impressed enough with how it has helped me that I have ordered Photoshop CS CIB and Illustrator CS CIB. I'm no Go-Live whiz-kid yet, but the book has made me completely functional within just a couple of days. I definitely recommend it.
Beware if you buy this book- make CERTAIN that you buy/receive the "Revised Edition", or you may encounter the problems all these other reviewers have encountered.
