    Used book sold as new

    This review is about Barnes & Noble, not the book. I ordered this book online as a new book. The copy I received looks like it spent several months inside someones backpack. If I didn't need the book now for a class I would return it. New means New, do not send TRASH as NEW.

    REQUIRED FOR SCHOOL - WILL KEEP ON HAND TO REFERENCE

    This book was a good start. It had some good tutorials and information, however I felt that I needed to search online for alot of the information like making different types of navigation menus. I think it could be more detailed, but a good starter book.

    The tutorial graphics and such are found online, which I really liked.

    Good for beginners but exercises have typos

    This is a good introduction to HTML for those without previous experience. However, many of the exercises contain typos, which makes for some frustrating experiences. Best followed up with a book on javascript so as to make your webpages more dynamic.

    Not the best book to learn HTML, XHTML, or CSS

    I purchased this book for an online class and was very disappointed with it. I found it hard to understand. What was most annoying was that I followed along through the chapter and practice tutorial just fine, but when it came to the tests, I was lost. Didn't seem right and I am a rather technical person as well. I would recommend using a different book to learn this material.
