Adobe Dreamweaver CS5 Classroom in a Book is probably the best way of learning Dreamweaver CS5 without taking a class or purchasing expensive DVD’s. The book is broken down into several step-by-step lessons with color pictures throughout. It comes with a DVD that has all the lesson files you’ll need to work along, and a couple bonus video tutorials.
I had no previous experience in web design. Dreamweaver is bundled with the CS5 Master Suite, so I thought it would be a good idea to learn it and revamp my webpage. This book is by no means an exhaustive reference, but it will bring you from point A (being daunted by all of Dreamweaver’s menus and buttons) to point B (able to comfortably navigate the Dreamweaver workspace and create a website from scratch). You’ll even develop an understanding of HTML and CSS along the way.
There are a few typos throughout the book, but I think most people will notice and correct them on their own. Despite that, Dreamweaver CS5 Classroom in a Book taught me exactly what I’d hoped it would, and I’ll definitely use the Classroom in a Book series again for any other Adobe software I need to learn.
