This video was fantastic. I had learned how to do web design while I was in school some years ago using GoLive but hadn't used much of it since. This program not only showed me how to use Dreamweaver, but it also helped make certain I am employing the best practices available today.
There is a lot of content packed into the lessons that will help even intermediate users, but it is presented in such a way that it would be easy for even a novice to understand. If you've never done web programming/design before, just take it slowly and don't try to absorb everything in 1 day. It is helpful when using Dreamweaver to have some basic knowledge of html, but it isn't required in order to get a lot out of the video. The instructor goes over the most important things you need to know.
Because I had a basic understanding already, I was able to watch all the videos over 2 days without feeling overwhelmed. I would highly recommend this video. It was very helpful and well done and a much better way for me to learn the program than by reading a book. A picture is worth a thousand words! Robert West, Seattle Washington
