Creating dynamic, database-driven Web sites used to be too cumbersome for anyone but serious hand-coding programmers. Now, thanks to Dreamweaver's improved code generation tools, you can use Dreamweaver MX and ColdFusion MX to bypass the hurdles formerly involved with creating dynamic Web applications. ColdFusion MX Development with Dreamweaver MX: Visual QuickPro Guide, written by Macromedia's own certified instructors and developers, eases you into creating complex Web applications using these improved code generation tools. The book relies on the Visual QuickPro Guide's trademark task-based format with plenty of screenshots to show you how to use Dreamweaver's built-in wizards and behaviors before moving on to tackle more complex tasks such as creating and assigning variables and performing more advanced coding in the Code View.
If you've hit a wall with your site and want to quickly and easily transform it into a full-fledged Web application through the addition of dynamic elements and database connectivity, no other book will help you reach your goal faster. Easy-to-follow step-by-step tasks let you get to work from the very first chapter, and in no time, you'll be creating database-driven Web applications that can process forms, display data from databases, prompt for logins, send email, and more.

I have read other books written by Ben Forta and too many steps are missing in his books! I am on Chapter 8 of this book. So far there are not many missed steps, but in Chapter 8 you will find yourself lost. I will be looking for books of this kind that does not have Ben Forta's name on it!!
The authors, Marc and Sue, have taken their time and obviously performed their research on their target market as well. I can say that because this has to be the best beginner book for making ColdFusion MX web sites with Dreamweaver MX that I have read to date. I found the book to be very well organized, easy to read, thorough in it's discussion and the included exercises of the task at hand. Not only do they cover the basics in the first segment of the book, but they get into hand coding and advanced features of ColdFusion MX in the second section of the book. For a little book (312 pages), it certainly is packed with punch! If you want to get started making ColdFusion MX Web sites with Dreamweaver MX, then I highly recommend this as your first educational resource for the project you have been craving to make.
