I read all of the reviews provided by Amazon's system prior to making my purchases for Expression Studio 4 training materials. After reading all of the reviews I decided to purchase "Microsoft Expression Web 4 LiveLessons" and "Introducing Microsoft Expression Studio" in addition to Morten Rand-Hendriksen's book. Some of the reviews were critical about "Vocabulary Consistency". Having both Morten Rand-Hendriksen's book (Sams Teach Yourself Microsoft Expression Web 4) and training videos (Microsoft Expression Web 4 LiveLessons) eliminates most of the "Vocabulary Consistency" problems. One of my major reasons for using the Expression Web 4 "Help" is to be sure that I understand the correct "Vocabulary" of the program so that I can comprehend the training material and master the specific Expression Web 4 topic.
There are differences between Morten Rand-Hendriksen's book and "Microsoft Expression Web 4 LiveLessons" DVD; one example is the topic on how to use the "Interactive Buttons" function on the "Insert Menu". The book includes step by step instructions while this topic it is not included in the video. The video focuses on the most difficult concepts to understand and master, both the book and video have example Website files. Another example is the "Panels" training in both the book and videos. The training on the "Compatibility" panel (which checks for "HTML" and "CSS" code errors) and technique for its effective use is invaluable.
There were also criticisms in some reviews about Morten Rand-Hendriksen's book and training videos lack of "Ease of Use" and "speed of learning", those criticisms are valid based on the reviewer's perspective. Expression Web 4 is a very sophisticated and comprehensive website development program which can meet a wide range of user requirements from build a website with the "Website Templates" included with the program to build a custom website from "Scratch". I believe Morten Rand-Hendriksen's book and training videos are a must have for any situation. If you simply want to use the "Templates" you will encounter a problem at some point where you will need to understand the program plus HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) and CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) concepts to correct the problem with your website or get outside help.
I'm a self-employed consulting engineer who provides plans services for both commercial building and residential dwelling construction. My two experiences with "Website Development" service providers didn't produce the website I wanted and were an endless money pit. My experience with "intuit/Homestead Build Your Website" calibrated me on having to learn "Website Software Upgrades" that meet the service provider's needs vs. my needs. I have the need to both develop my business (website) and meet my commitments to my customers on time without having to do unscheduled "Website Software Upgrade" training prior to being able update and develop of my website. My solution for both the money pit and website software upgrade control problems is Expression Studio 4. Morten Rand-Hendriksen's book and "Microsoft Expression Web 4 LiveLessons" are the solution for how to learn the basics of Expression Web 4.
I only maintain a personal site and am not a professional. I designed my page with Frontpage and have been wanting to update it for a long time, but knew it would be major overhaul if I didn't get another program. This book has taught me that it's not going to be as big of a job as I had thought, but I am going to take the time to change to cascading style sheets because of this book.
The book starts out very simply and gets complex toward the end. Take it a chapter at a time and you'll make it through just fine. Great for a beginner, but best for someone like me - someone who has tinkered around an knows just a little bit, but is looking to expand the knowledge.
Definitely worth the price and if you're switching to Expression Web 3 from an older program, I'd highly recommend this book.
