    Difficult To Follow....No Help

    I'm very familiar with Dreamweaver, Fireworks, and Flash. This book did not help me what so ever in furthering my knowledge with these products. It's hard to follow and it refers more to apple computers and MS Access things I don't need to know about. I recommend not getting this book. I sent mine back.

    A very difficult book to follow

    I bought this book with out having any prior knowledge about Macromedia. Even though I have experience in HTML, XHTML, CSS, JavaScript, I was lost in this book. The book lacked visual aid, and most of the chapters spent more time talking about methods to use in order to develop dynamic web pages, than how to use Macromedia Studio. I would have loved to see the authors develop a web page from scratch and take the reader step by step than all this talk about teamwork, and document sharing among teams. I would not recommend this book especially to beginners.

    A Definite Must Read!!!

    ¿Building Dynamic Web Sites with Macromedia Studio MX 2004¿ is by far the best book I¿ve read on building dynamic websites to date. Only one other book I know of goes into so much detail regarding the overall process of developing a website, ¿Building Web Sites with Macromedia Studio MX¿, which is also written by the remarkable trio who wrote this book. I really appreciated how the books focus on teaching its readers how to integrate Macromedia¿s latest tools with one another melded seamlessly into the dynamic workflow being presented throughout the book; As well as how it not only showed you ¿how¿ to do certain tasks related to the project (step-by- step), but goes that extra step and tells you ¿why¿ you should do it that way. Throughout the book the authors took a ¿let the software do the work¿ approach to their instruction, which made the whole development process seem a lot less daunting and quite efficient. Although I¿m usually quite thick skinned when I read a book, I really found it refreshing the way the authors talked straight to you as an equal, and by the use of illustrations really helped get across the concepts that may have been over the less technical minded readers head. Overall the tone of the book was one that made you feel good about what you were learning and that it wasn¿t beyond your reach. At this time it should be noted that this book is not intended for the novice but is written with the web professional/development team in mind. The real meat of this book came in the form of the topics that were covered during the course of the project. Some of the more exciting topics covered included the use of Flash Remoting, incorporating the Flash Communication Server through the use of Flash MX 2004 components, dynamic templates, and putting Dreamweaver¿s new CSS capabilities to the test. Add this to the great coverage of the dynamic development process and you¿ll find that you¿re hard pressed to find anything you don¿t like about the book¿ Overall the bottom line is if you are looking for a book that fully explains the process of building dynamic web site/applications, and how to use Macromedia's latest and greatest tools seamlessly together, this book is the book you are going to want to get.

    Take your site up a notch

    This book is an excellent guide for the site producer who wants to take their website to the next level. The dynamic website is becoming more and more common, but putting one together can be a daunting task. The authors of this book take the reader through the necessary steps, from site planning and navigation structure, to implementation by the use of a fictional but realistic client website project. The liberal use of graphics and screenshots aids the reader in understanding how dynamic sites are built, along with how the various Macromedia software applications work together as a suite of tools. This book is not for the novice site builder, nor is it meant to be. The ideal reader of this book is the site producer, author, artist, manager, programmer - whomever is responsible for porting over their static website into a dynamic, more easily-maintained site. This book will not make you into an artist, a database administrator, or a Flash programmer, but it will teach you how to integrate the tools - perhaps integrate your team - into a more efficient organization with better workflow. You'll be able to offer your site visitors more reasons to stay and look around. I can recommend this book to anyone who uses the software regularly. The writing style is accessible and instructive without being condescending. The reasoning behind the exercises is explained, and all exercises have real-world application. The database section covers the most common types of database applications. The graphics section explains the advantages of using Fireworks as the primary graphics editing tool, and throughout, the authors look to giving you the knowledge to create a living, dynamic website. This book deserves a place on all serious site creators who use the Macromedia set of software tools.
