The tutorial sequence guides you in studying the course materials - an on-line PDF - and provides exercises for you to practise and consolidate what you learn. The exercises do not cover all the material in the manual and while you study you should use Dreamweaver and follow the explanations as you go.
If you wish you can also print all the exercises for reference.
We also provide links to supporting material from other sources both text and multimedia. This is supplementary material and you do not need to view it to complete the course successfully.
