    Well I am fairly biased as this is the method I chose to use but I think books are a great way to learn, firstly you know that the information should be good quality as generally speaking, only experts and professionals get to publish (due to publishers wanting to keep their reputation) and the content as by a single or few authors means that the writing style should be consistant

    thanks for this positive response.
    i would like to ask another question that what is more important from getting just practical knowledge or theoratical knowledge is more important.

    Practice matters the most. Even if some standard says browsers should render stuff this way, it doesn't mean browsers really render it this way. So it's much more useful to make real pages and see how they act in real browsers.

    While practice is the most important kind of knowledge you can get (web design and development is hands on, not back seat) you can't gain practical experience without the groundwork covered in the theoretical aspects

    I would advise using books and video tutorials as a start!
    You should start with well known and good quality books and tutorials like the ones you can find here and here on sitepoint!
    After, once you can tell what's good or bad you can read more resources like blog posts/tutorials...

    Slightly contradictory here, your against using books but you recommend good quality books?

    Either way, theres plenty of good titles out there, not just those made by SitePoint!

    I learned purely by going to forums. Just reading other pepoles knowledgable posts really help. It's better then any book could ever do. Human talking is what I really like.
    Always looking for web design/development work. Willing to do it cheap to build portfolio!
