I have been somewhat coding my own websites for several years. What I do is start out with some sort of template or other site and then figure out how to code the changes I want to make them unique. This can be frustrating at best when you aren't familiar enough with CSS so I finally bit the bullet and bought a book. I'm glad that I bought the right one because this one rocks! I don't think that I got through the entire book in one day but this made learning CSS so much easier than I thought it would be. There are numerous examples and illustrations included, which is how I learn the best. Also, there are end-of-chapter exercises and a bonus project included in the book. A great resource for CSS.
If you're looking for simplicity, yet precise and to the point, this is it. I've bought a number of detailed books on CSS and still found some knowledge I didn't find in learning CSS. One example is the difference between DIV and SPAN. I never knew one was a dividing element and one was inline. You'd think I'd have learned that but for some reason in the HTML and CSS AND Dreamweaver books I've read, none ever told me that. The book is very well planned out with chapters which makes it a great reference book for most of the CSS things you'll use if you forget. Further, the Exercises to download and play with, in Dreamweaver, makes it a useful hands-on how-to to truly understand. The book actually helped me to move on to the greater areas of CSS I needed to know in moving to building responsive websites. You need a good grasp on CSS to truly understand the responsive movement the web is headed to with mobile applications.
Very clear. It doesn't support even looking at the exercises on my tablet, which was frustrating; though I can see the point in trying to make someone do them on a computer. But I would have liked to LOOK at them at least.
This book provides very good explanations and exercises to help you really learn how to write CSS code. I am a complete beginner and I have no problem following the book. Great buy! Highly recommended!!
As a new entrant within the field of coding I was referred to this manual by a coworker of mine. Given that I’m very impatient and don’t have the time for a lot of chatter, this book was a perfect fit for me. The author is definitely an authority on the subject and the material is dense yet succinct. A huge help for me as I progressed through the pages were the end chapter exercises; they were very well designed. Also, I found that the concepts were well explained and perfectly suited for beginners like me, especially the explanations on float and position.In summation, if you’re looking for a book on CSS that will instruct you clearly and swiftly, you can’t do better than this one.
I have been doing a lot of HTML and CSS coding for a long time. All of it was self taught by viewing source code from html pages. I really wish I would have had a book like this. I am sure that my trial and error (mostly error) coding experience would have been less stressful. Everything you need to know about creating eye-catching Cascading Style Sheets is included in this quick and easy guide. The hands on coding exercises wonderfully compliment each chapter and make make learning so much easier. The first three chapters are dedicated to HTML and the rest to CSS. If you are new to programming or, like me, have forgotten more than you remember, this guide is fantastic and I could not recommend it any higher.
Good beginners book. Am trying to learn how to build myself a better website. In my journey, have discovered this is one of many moving parts involved in website builds. This book gave me the basic information needed. It definitely isn't a comprehensive reference but then I didn't feel I needed one, just the basics
In a concise way, it was great. It served as a refresher for me, it's been several years since I've used CSS and it brought the basic's back to me quickly. I was most impressed with the instructions as it applies to order of precedence.
