    Great series of Books!

    Being a beginner to Dreamweaver and all Adobe products, the "Classroom in a Book" series of textbooks are great. This book and the rest of the CIB's give you hands on examples with their CD and they give you step by step instructions that show the ins and outs of the products as you go along with each exercise. I highly recommend this book for the people who learn by hands on experiences.
