Hi nasemabdullaa,
take a look at http://www.bu.edu/webcentral/learning/dreamweaver1/index.html
this has some quite good tips.
I also found some free DW CBT CD's at my local library which i borrowed, might be worth you asking at your library?

Regards
Gav

Hi

Adobe has a number of free tutorials and flash movies to help you all the way from beginner to advanced dynamic database stuff in their DevNet area:

http://www.adobe.com/devnet/dreamweaver/

If you are truly just starting, I recommend watching the video tutorials:

http://www.adobe.com/devnet/dreamweaver/video_tutorials.html

Those are the probably the best ones to start with.

Hi nasemabdullaa,

Just one quick point to add to the above suggestion.  Although Dreamweaver in most cases will achieve a lot for you, there are many other instances where it simply does not do things in the best way.  Examples include code formatting (dreamweaver randomly creates new styles at page level, in multiple different <style> blocks).

What I'm trying to say is that I personally recommend learning XHTML and CSS first before you use dreamweaver.  By doing this, you will see how dreamweaver acts as a platform that you can take full control over.  When it doesn't give you precisely what you need (or makes a complete mess of things), you will have the ability to switch to Code View and fix the problem yourself.

I know you didn't want to hear that answer but trust me, from experience it will save you many hours fixing things in the future!

Rouchie,

Good advice.  Just one minor point:

"dreamweaver randomly creates new styles at page level, in multiple different <style> blocks"

You can turn that off and force DW to not do it.
