    The book is a good basic introduction but does not cover all the tools in Creative Cloud. It does not cover the lesser known programs like Edge and Muse. If you want an introduction to the major programs like Photoshop and Illustrator it is fine. Just do not expect too much detailed, in depth information.

    I received this book as a gift and it has been extremely helpful to me. It is written very clearly and takes me step-by-step through fundamentals and shortcuts that would be hard to learn on my own. Even though this book covers multiple programs, I was able to get the information I need to work with the new creative cloud programs.

    This is a very thick book, filled with a lot of information. Not something to sit and read, but a terrific reference book.

    The Best Single Learning Resource for Dreamweaver, December 22, 2012

    This review is from: Adobe Dreamweaver CS6 Classroom in a Book (Paperback)

    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. Some will argue that Adobe has Muse for that, but the code, which Muse generates, is lousy. On the other side of the world from Muse is Adobe’s Brackets, a strictly code-base app. This leaves Dw in the middle of the two offering clunky tools for Design View and great ones for Code View.

    For CS5 the team at Adobe Press recruited Jim Maivald to completely rewrite their CIB on Dreamweaver. It was the most inspiring book about Dw we’ve ever seen. So, Jim set the bar pretty high for the Dw CS6 edition.

    In comparing the two editions, side-by-side, it’s clear in just the first two chapters that the latest edition has nice improvements in both content and layout. The first chapter gets the reader comfortable with the workspace. This is important. If you have been working in apps like Illustrator, InDesign, and Photoshop, you need to rethink how much of the Dw workspace operates.

    In the second chapter, there’s no effort to hide the reader from the HTML coding. If anything, the chapter is a primer on HTML5 which has been expanded in this edition to include some of the other technologies the reader may encounter.

    Through much of Dw’s history it has been oriented to CSS, cascading style sheets. The third chapter has been dramatically expanded to help the reader gain a great understanding of CSS3. Both chapters two and three are extremely easy to follow if someone is completely new to this. If all of this is foreign, we suggest the reader allocates as much as 2.5 hours for them and maybe take a break to be sure it’s all sinking in. Let us also caution that these chapters are attempting to help you understand the technology behind what Dw does when it generates code from what you do in Design View. You may work with Dw and rarely, if ever, use Code View. So, don’t complete chapter three and think, “This isn’t for me.”

    This edition has been admirably reorganized as to next introduce you to the elements of designed and planning web pages and sites. Don’t let this concern you if you feel you are not inclined toward creating freehand layouts with pencil and paper or creating comps at a drafting table. The focus is all in the planning. By the time you complete this chapter, you will have created a page in Dw. This is an empowering experience. At this point in your CIB lessons, you may have only invested three to three and a half hours. If a book and it’s lessons can take you from knowing next to nothing about Dw to creating your first page, in such a short period of time, for only $32, we think that’s impressive. Even if the concepts are a little difficult to grasp and it takes you more like four hours, you should feel very good about your progress.

    Though chapter 3 introduces the CSS concepts, it’s not until the fifth chapter that you get to be hands on. This chapter has also been expanded since the previous edition and the additional learning experiences make it all well worth it.

    Some web professionals scoff at templates and all the related child pages. We disagree. The sixth chapter in itself proves how valuable and time efficient they can be to a complete website. Additionally, templates make a great deal of sense to anyone coming into…

    Very disappointed!, August 14, 2012

    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 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.
