Reviews - What do customers think about Dreamweaver 4 f/x and Design?
Don't waste your time! Oct 6, 2003
Another reviewer said it best: "The directions and files provided for the sample projects are THE WRONG FILES! Also, they confusing and inadequate. This is -- by far -- the worst computer book I have ever read. I only wish I could get a refund. Buyer beware!" DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY! I WON'T BUY ANYTHING FROM THIS AUTHOR (or so-called author) EVER AGAIN!
Excellent Reference Feb 26, 2003
This is a excellent source for either novice or intemediate Dreamweaver users. This book not only describes how to do certain steps, but it demonstrates it to you also. Great job Ms. Ulrich!!!
My favorite Christmas present! Feb 14, 2002
I received a copy of this book from my employer for Christmas. I had been putting our web site together and even though I had a basic sense of how Dreamweaver works, I was struggling to do things that I knew had to be easier to do. This book and its projects were just "what the doctor ordered" and the site's been falling together quite nicely now that I know the more effective ways to make Dreamweaver do its job. I even felt brave enough to try using Flash, just from the comfort-level this book gave me with Dreamweaver. I feel very empowered, and I have Ms. Ulrich to thank for it! If you need to learn Dreamweaver and want to do more than just basic stuff, you need this book. And don't wait for Christmas or your birthday and hope someone gives it to you!!
A very good book for new and experienced designers Jan 15, 2002
Laurie Ulrich's book was just what I personally needed, and professionally, I recommend it to my students (I teach web design) and have used it successfully in class. Most Dreamweaver books show you how to use the features and then leave it up to you to find good ways to put the software to work. This book takes a better approach, and shows you how to use Dreamweaver from a designer's perspective. Each feature of the software is demonstrated with practical and attractive examples of how the feature can be used to create good looking and functional web content.
The book's color pages (a group of glossy full color pages in the middle of the book)shows that the author is really an artist and designer, not just someone who happens to know how to use Dreamweaver. As a teacher, this appeals to me, because I know the value of real experience in the classroom, and it's just as valuable in books!
I use the book in Intro-level web design classes, and in advanced classes as well, so I recommend it to people who are new to Dreamweaver as well as to people who know the software pretty well but need help in how to take what they know and use it to make attractive web sites.
If more people read this book, the web would be a much better looking place!
disappointing in all respects Jan 10, 2002
The front cover of the book says this is a "Guide to Advanced Design Features" and the back cover rates the book as "User Level: Intermediate to Advanced. I don't believe that is an accurate description at all. The examples have designs that may have looked okay 6 or 7 years ago, but I think they are just terrible. The directions and files provided for the sample projects are confusing and inadequate. This is -- by far -- the worst computer book I have ever read. I only wish I could get a refund. Buyer beware!
