There are typos and some of the code is bad. That being said, I like that the book uses a narrative-like structure to teach HTML/CSS. So often technical books can be boring and hard to follow. Each tutorial/chapter leads you through progressively more complicated lessons. Each one uses a "potential client would like you to work on his/her website" story-line. It definitely makes slogging through the technical language easier.Going into this book knowing that there are typos and that some of the code is bad, I've still found it very useful. I almost feel like the typos/bad code make you learn the correct code better because you have to search for it. I highly suggest using this book with devdocs.io and w3schools.com to find the correct code.This was the book that we HAD to use for an HTML/CSS class. But I will keep it for future reference.
There's plenty of cheap HTML books that are very well reviewed. This is for teachers that want to assign homework. It assumes the teacher will do most the teaching, while the teacher assumes the book will do the teaching. Using this book assures no one learns anything.
I have an online class and we basically do as the book instructs with the coding and such. While I will say the class instructor isn't too clear about the work he wants you to do, but this isn't rate my prof. so I won't dive into that.The book however is easy to follow, and while will have some bad codes at times, it seems not to be too often. You could practical teach yourself on HTML and CSS with this book and online resources. You will use this book and learn alot from it, and the ebook is exactly like real life text, and will be easier to reference for things while you are coding.I would give it 5 stars if not for some codes not being right,'s kindle app not running on Linux, and it not being available on the Kindle cloud.
I loved using this book for my online CSS class, it was easy to read and follow while working on my own.but tons of typos! i am new to CSS but not HTML but i know when missing tags or repeated text should not be repeated. keep an eye out you will get errors in your code if you don't watch out!!
Covered everything you need in an introductory course. Good lesson examples, but some exercises need files available only if you are taking a class. You could however code it all yourself.
Excellent & easy to follow layout, good resource for beginner CSS/HTML. Sure there are some typos, but if you use common sense when coding you'll miss them. (HTML/CSS is very consistent syntax)
Standard text for HTML/CSS classes. Pretty good presentation; should be able to work/learn from text without too much additional input, but be patient and read very thoroughly as you work.
Must have intermediate accounting book before 2/23. I need it as soon as possible. Please advise.Thank you, sandra
