I did encounter some issues with this book, however. I found that the author tried very heavily to force feed the coding; assuming those who were reading had no experience with the languages. It became slightly annoying when I reached the point where I could no longer keep up with the pages of new code that I had to program to make the sites work. By the end of the book I was so frustrated I just copied the code down just to get through the last few pages. I would DEFINATELY recommend going through this book, deciding which server technology you would like to work with, and pursue that through other books. Regardless of what server technology you decide, a good SQL book is a must. After I finish some other books I believe I will appreciate the knowledge this book gave me (perhaps to a 5 star level), but for now it gets 4 stars.
Like earlier versions of this book, it conctrates your learning by going through the steps of a project. The accompaning cd has all the tutorial files as well as a trail version of DW8 - so no excuses.
Depending on how long you have used DW, you might not find much in the first few chapters, but the lessons get intense quickly with lesson 3 having you set up a local server (note you best have Windows XP Pro to do this) and delving into dynamic web sites.
The book does a good job at explaining the CSS features of Dreamweaver, however if you do not know CSS, best you get a book on that first before getting into this one. This book is for those ready to hit the ground running... no standing still on this one.
Great trainging manual for introductory classes and intermediate and below users, though more advanced users could use it from the staff library to brush up skills or find an answer to the odd probelem associated with new releases.
