This is actually a CD of sample projects with which you can follow along to see how they were created, in case you want to do something similar. The book is commentary on those sample projects. But if you want to learn how to do something specific, or look up how to use a certain feature, this book is useless.

Update Location

Many of the software features aren't even listed in the index. Shortly after my purchase I had a long chat with an Adobe rep about my concerns regarding this product and he promised "I will go ahead and escalate the case to our relevant team who would be able to review this chat and get back to you with an appropriate resolution.

And while I was waiting to hear back from them, the return window expired, so now I have a very expensive paperweight. I am extremely disappointed in Adobe.

Paul S. Remington Top Contributor: This is a self-directed course that has me working independently along with a primary mentor, so there are no other students or formal classes.

I was instructed in the learning contract to complete this book along with eight projects and a paper. I ordered this book on Amazon and have been working my way through it one chapter at a time.

There are no outside influences to sway my learning abilities. No professor to guide me, no students to correct me, no other resources, just me and this book. With all that said, I will state that this book is well written. It has been carefully thought out and edited. It is extremely powerful software that can be an enormous asset to both a layperson and a seasoned professional.

It is not without its faults. There were many times I labored over some of the chapters because the authors make certain assumptions about the knowledge base of the reader.

A few times menu selections or features were not available at all, which I learned later is because certain plugins had not been installed on my computer Zoomify, Flash, etc. On more than one occasion, menu selections were named something a little different, which leads me to believe the book may have been written from an earlier release of CS6. I was able to work around this by digging into other menu drop downs to locate it elsewhere.

The beginning of each chapter provides a time estimate for the chapter. I found these estimates to be very inaccurate. Add the frustrations described above, and this amounted to more time.

In my experience, their estimates were not well determined for those inexperienced with the software, carefully trying to work through each lesson. The book comes with a supplied disk that contains lessons for each chapter. These are extremely helpful and offer excellent opportunities for the user to learn and practice the lessons in the book. Each lesson provides a start and end file.

The end file is the completed project. The start file is what you start with. Each chapter instructs you to save and rename this file to a working copy that you use as your sandbox for learning. You follow the chapter to complete the lesson and create exactly what you see in the end file. If you follow it faithfully, you will learn a wealth of features, tips, and tricks about CS6.

A previous reviewer criticized this book by stating it is really just the CS5 book renamed as CS6. I kept this in mind while working through the book. This is incorrect. I found a number of CS6-specific features discussed.


Adobe Photoshop is an extremely rich and powerful product that can be used to do much more than this book instructs. The intent of this book is to acquaint a user with a broad cross section of its most powerful features. Adobe Classroom in a Book series are the best books to learn their software. I have been using Adobe software since the beginning, have looked at lots of other manuals and the CIB books are the best. I also like the Visual Quickstart Guides.

The InDesign book was perfect in getting me up to speed.

However, I didn't like this Dreamweaver book. The book starts with building a site right off the bat but doesn't explain to the reader what he is doing and why so I felt lost. The author did not start at the beginning to give me an understanding of the environment and how Dreamweaver operates before jumping into tutorials. I was very frustrated with this book. I had more questions than answers. At least with the ed2go class, I had a teacher to answer my questions. The tutorials were fairly straight-forward and easy-to-follow, though sometimes the directions asked you to access a menu or option that wasn't immediately evident on the screen.

A few of the chapters seem outdated - particularly Lesson 13 about "Preparing Files for the Web". The lesson walks the user through the process of creating web slices, whic I needed a good book to gain a formal understanding of PhotoShop basics, and for the most part, this book did a pretty good job fulfilling that need.

The lesson walks the user through the process of creating web slices, which then generates HTML to mimic the page layout in the form of tables. Tables have long fallen out of favor as a practice for developing web page layouts and have been replaced by CSS and responsive techniques.

Also within this lesson, the reader is instructed to create a web gallery that's generated in Adobe Flash.

Understandably, Adobe has created this product, but even they have to be aware just how much developers have minimized their usage of Flash in recent years. This lesson in particular could benefit from a significant refresh.
