Written by three of the creators of the "Certified Dreamweaver Developer" exam, this book is designed specifically to simplify exam preparation, and follows the same subject division as the test itself. The book does not teach Dreamweaer, rather, it is a review guide and provides helpful pointers for examinees. The book's coverage is thorough, and is highly readable in small bite-sized chunks. Each subject is presented in clear and direct lanaguage, with useful and well explained code examples. Sample questions accompany each subject, as do references to recommended reading (documentation, course work, and existing Macromedia Press books).
