I'm sorry but I thought I was buying a complete textbook but it is missing several files. These files allow you to complete the exercises in the book. Without them you will have to buy an access code ($25) to complete them.Just a heads up for those who might be buying this as a textbook.
I took a beginning web design class that required this book. After reading the reviews for the book I was worried that the class would be a dud, but I needed the class as a prerequisite to take another class.My class was an online class that relied on the book and the projects contained in it 100%.I really liked the book and the class and the projects. There's a web site where you download the project files to complete the projects in the book. Sometimes the project instructions are a little vague, but it makes you think and really apply what you learn.I would recommend this book for beginners.
This is ridiculous. It is missing the activity pages so I can't do the homework. They should say it doesn't include all of the text. The last page of every chapter is left blank.
Most of this book is easy to follow and does give many good examples how to code correctly. There are areas which could be improved to give example codings for those who have trouble conceptualization or mentally visualizing what is needed to be done.For CSS, it could be mentioned if certain coding needs to be place in a specific area, or if each coding is stand-alone. This can be confusing for beginner web designers.The reason for 4 stars is for the areas in which are not defined enough to understand where coding is supposed to be set, especially in the .html file.
I'm taking a Web Dev class and I bought this book for the value and was great on my Kindle app but about 1/2 way through my course I started to need student files to use for homework that was assigned. Digging into it, I realized that this digital book did not come with student files I needed! Very unhappy and not sure where to go from here but to the publisher where I assume will cost something. The book also doesn't do a very good job at describing how important it is to use comments in HTML and CSS. On a good note, the Kindle book is very easy to use and navigate and is also very handy to have.
Pretty good book it simplified everything to me and I didn't know any html and it allowed me to create a website for school. What also helped me was looking at html code at w3schools.com and seeing how it worked
The coding they use in the text versus the examples is very different and doesn't always validate on the W3C. So...just make sure you try the other way when it doesn't validate and don't give up! A specific example I can remember is when you are doing the image mapping. On one page it shows spaces in-between the numbers, but that doesn't validate, but in another example it shows them all together without spaces, and that will validate. It was very confusing and frustrating at times! lol
Any beginning web developer should own this book!!! I rented it but will now be buying it, I liked it that much. Easy to navigate structure, incredibly informative, and able to portray complex instructions as elementary concepts for the beginners. This is a great book to use as a reference!
