We're not big fans of Dreamweaver (Dw), even though we use it 365 days a year.

We've been designing websites for seventeen years. Our first client was NBC News. That means we have seen many web design tools come and go. We did not feel as if we had really arrived in the web design world until Adobe acquired GoLive (GL) and incorporated it into its first Creative Suite offering in September 2003. The only way we managed to master GoLive was by carefully studying Classroom in a Book. It was not only educational but the lessons were inspirational. We hung onto GoLive for as long as possible after Adobe discontinued it in favor of the Dreamweaver they acquired from Macromedia. With time GL could no longer create the pages a modern-day web designer needs. We struggled through making the jump to Dreamweaver CS4 by watching many videos but the intricacies of the app were not sinking in. We studied Dw CS4 Classroom in a Book (CIB). It all started to fall in place. We have a long history with CIB and though we were grateful the Dw CS4 volume kick-started our daily reliance on that app, but the book lacked the inspirational lessons that we've come to expect from the CIB series. If you've been around website creation, maintenance, and management for as long as we have, Dw is not that tough to get started on, for simple tasks. If you are new to the world of website development Dw, can be a daunting, steep mountain to climb because you are tossed, head first, into the foreign land of internet technology.

We go back to Adobe's PageMill. It was very designer friendly. PageMill was something of a PageMaker, the publishing app of the day, but for the web. Adobe has yet to make Dw into an app for designers.

While this book might be ok for someone just getting into Dreamweaver, it's very disappointing for me. I have been waiting for Dreamweaver CS6 and some of it's great new features. One of those features is the new Fluid Grid Layout feature which allows you to design for different screen sizes and mobile devices. Maybe I missed something but this book does not even mention it! It's nowhere in the table of contents and when I do a search of the contents it still does not come up. Shame on Peach Pit for leaving something so important as this out! I'll be very cautious if I even buy a book from them again.

I used dreamweaver once or twice about 10 years ago... so I consider myself a beginner to the application. I did have a little HTML and CSS understanding before starting with this book but from what I saw in the book, it didn't really make that big of a difference. Hopefully the insight I bring as a beginner will help other beginners.

The book uses a fictional company that you are designing a site for. You do not need to have a server to run the site (but it helps). All of the image files and media you need to fill in the blanks are available on the CD that comes with the physical copy (I am not sure how or if this media is available to the e-text versions - something to look into before you buy).

The book takes you from the beginning planning of the site all the way to putting finishing touches and publishing it. If there is a chapter that you want to skip, you can. Each chapter assumes you have completed the previous steps exactly the way it was described up to that point... but never fear, you don't have to agonize over the minor missteps you may have made along the way - simply go to the folder for the specific chapter you are starting, and you will find all files and folders with content exactly the way it should be up to that chapter in the book (this is also explained in the text).

There were some very minor differences between the illustrations in the book and what I actually saw on my screen (most likely due to updates in the software since the book was published). It may also be worth noting that this book is for CS6 and not for the creative cloud version of dreamweaver (they are quite a bit different). This book was assigned for a web design class I took online. I believe I only asked the instructor one or two questions at most.

I am a beginner and am using this resource as my only aid to learn the program and I am finding it easy to follow and very educational. The additional rsources on the DVD-Rom are great.

Adobe Classroom in a Book series are the best books to learn their software. I have been using Adobe software since the beginning, have looked at lots of other manuals and the CIB books are the best. I also like the Visual Quickstart Guides. When I upgraded from CS2 to CS6, I bought almost all the CIB books for it. There is such a huge difference between CS2 to CS6 that I needed them. The InDesign book was perfect in getting me up to speed. However, I didn't like this Dreamweaver book. Even after reading it, I still took a $100 ed2go class to learn Dreamweaver (which I found more helpful than the book). The book starts with building a site right off the bat but doesn't explain to the reader what he is doing and why so I felt lost. The author did not start at the beginning to give me an understanding of the environment and how Dreamweaver operates before jumping into tutorials. I was very frustrated with this book. I had more questions than answers. At least with the ed2go class, I had a teacher to answer my questions. I did not find the other Dreamweaver books out there to be any better. Adobe now has training and downloadable tutorials for free. I have found these to be the most helpful. Save your money and learn at Adobe instead.
