Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Terry's book will save you a lot of trips to the college classrooms. Amazing work that does not need a teacher in front of you, but just her book.
We use this book in a community college course for both online and face-to-face classes. The full-color book is engaging for students. The two-page topics are geared towards students who may be more visually oriented and who don't want to read a lot. The hands-on practice exercises encourage students to apply what they've just learned. The students really like the hands-on approach with examples, practice exercises, and case studies. This textbook focuses on how to use HTML5 and CSS3 today and while introducing new elements and techniques that will be utilized in the future. Where appropriate, both XHTML and HTML5 syntax are discussed. There is also excellent coverage of web standards, web design best practices, accessibility, usability, and search engine optimization techniques. A bonus is the textbook's companion website at webdevbasics dot net that has a page for each chapter with chapter links, additional information, flash review puzzles,and chapter updates. I highly recommend this book!
