Many of the exercises assume you know what to do or leave much to speculate as to what steps to take (this is supposed to be a step by step) and often do not come out as shown or described which is extremely frustrating.
If you need, as you will, to contact their e-mail address for support or a question, forget it. You don't want to wake them up.
What you get is typical of MS's arrogance and couldn't care less.
If you really want to learn FrontPage 2002, there are much better sources.
There are also several instances where the book descriptions and examples do not match the results from the shipping Frontpage 2002 product I received - and the results you get for an exercise may be somewhat different than shown in the book. Likely, at least part of the book was written using a pre-release of Frontpage 2002.
I would have preferred at least a simulation for the exercises in the last four chapters to make this book truly valuable to me to understand the full capabilities of Frontpage 2002. To achieve this, I will have to either sign up for the web services with a contract, or buy and install Windows XP Pro to finish the last four chapters of the book. Buyer Beware!
First let me say that I am a web designer, and have been building sites for several years. I've used Frontpage before, but have been using Dreamweaver for the past 3 years.
Anyway, I'm teaching a class on Frontpage, and was looking for a book to use for the class. This isn't it.
Chapter 11 on publishing your site covers everything except publishing to a remote server from your local machine (which is the most common way to publish). It finally covers publishing on the next chapter entitled "Managing Your Site", but unfortunately the instructions aren't even close to what is available in FrontPage 2002. Evidently they were using a pre-release version of the software. Try going through the instructions on p.279 ????? "Views Bar" "ServerAdmin" "Web Folders" icon?????? I had to glance at the cover of the book to make sure I hadn't accidently picked up a book on FP 2000 by mistake.
I haven't really explored the book very thoroughly, so it might be a decent book, but just from looking at a few different topics I'm ready to toss it already.
In just over 325 pages I found a wealth of information that not only shows me how to use the program but also prepares me for the MOUS exam for Front Page 2002. The easy to follow along guidelines make learning a breeze and for those who can't afford formal classroom training this may be the answer.
Within the 12 chapters you'll cover topics like creating the web site, lists, tables, graphics, building a web site from the ground up, web layouts and links. Also there is coverage of auto updating the web site, working with databases, management and publishing of the web site.
Use of color photos enhanced the learning process because you can see the actual finished product before you get started. Along with tips and tricks the step by step instructions make building and creating web pages very easy.
Built for the beginner this book is an excellent tool for web designer in all of us. The author has also included HTML coding examples to show the underlying world of web design. Overall this book is well worth the price.
