(Product Review) HTML & JavaScript QuickStart Guides by ClydeBank Technology (paperback)

I created my first webpage a very long time ago, but it has been years since I did much with HTML and decided to order this HTML: and JavaScript QuickStart Guides - HTML QuickStart Guide and JavaScript QuickStart Guide (HTML 5, JavaScript, HTML and CSS) as a refresher course to help me build my new webpage.

I got the paperback edition of the book and when my order first arrived I thought there had been a mistake. I was expecting two separate books; one for HTML and one for JavaScript, but it appear that the books have been combined into one book. Considering the thickness of the book, this is probably for the best. The book is divided into two parts with the JavaScript QuickStart Guide beginning on page 75.

I must admit that I was a bit concerned when I saw the size of the book, thinking that it probably wouldn't contain a lot of information, but I was pleasantly surprised. I have mostly worked only with the HTML in the past, and starting with this section gave me a really good refresher on many of the things I had learned and forgotten over the years.

It gave some good basic information and even a bit of history on the HTML and some of the variations. It even taught me a few things I hadn't known before. Everything was well laid out and easy to follow, with clear examples. As for the JavaScript, much of this is new to me since I haven't really worked with it much before. I have looked it over, but am still going through it since this is a whole new subject for me. So far I am liking what I am seeing, and will continue working with this book in my efforts to get my new website set up.

Although I got this product at a discount or received a complimentary sample in exchange for my honest review, all thoughts and opinions on the products I review are always my own and have not been influenced by any discounts or samples which may have been provided to me for testing purposes.
