Guest More than 1 year ago
This book is for EXTREMELY novice computer useres, I couldn't believe how much of a novice people can be until I read this book. It actually tells you with pictures and words how to Open and Close the Dreamweaver program! If you don't know how to do that on your own, you shouldn't even be trying to make a website. The only reason I'm writing this review, is because I feel I got ripped off, and I wouldn't want this to happen to anyone else. You might want to buy this book only if you don't know what a mouse is, or how to turn on your monitor. Save your money for the books put out by Macromedia.
