    Recommend a good beginners book for Dreamweaver MX

    I've looked around at Amazon and B&N, and none of the online reviewers seem to agree on which book might be great for beginners. And when I say beginner I mean both with web design in general and Dreamweaver MX. So does anyone have one they'd suggest?

    I know there is pretty good info included with DMX, and plenty of tutorials out there. I'll be working on it from home thought where I only have one monitor and was thinking a book might be helpful.

    Thanks

    If you want to learn Dreamweaver, pick up the book that is made by Macromedia. I had their book for Flash 5 and the "training from the source" (their tagline) was very helpful.

    I don't recommend only getting a DW book though. Find a good book on HTML and XHTML so you know how to correct Dreamweaver's mistakes (because it does make some).

    Also inlcude an ASP book for good measure. In building dynamic sites not only is DW very very helpful at that but you will also need an above average understanding of ASP scripting (VBScript in particular, and SQL logic/syntax)

    If you want a book that will help you with the beginning steps - I would go with this book:

    Macromedia Dreamweaver MX Hands-On Training
    by Garo Green, Abigail Rudner

    but that is for a step 1 beginner. If you have an idea of what you are doing then I would go with a Macromedia book.
