Best Learning Materials - Macromedia Dreamweaver

How new am I? Green Green Green... I took a semester course at a local community college last semester on Dreamweaver MX. We used the book H.O.T. by Lynda.com. It was OK in the beginning but soon became a crutch as we began to adjust to the "getting it done as quickly as possible" routine.

Now that I can consider myself a "beginner" what transitional material can I study or purchase to help me become an "intermediate" designer? I have searched...purchased and some I have wasted my money. I have gone back to the H.O.T. training CD Rom for their "intermediate" 15 hour course...sitting in front of the computer for 15 hours watching the "movies" ... OK...I haven't done that long ... yet...I am a visual learner...but I also need that Hardcopy so that underline phrases...bend the corners of the pages...that sort of thing. Any suggestions out there? Thanks in advance.

    You really can't go past the tutorials from [url]http://www.projectseven.com[/url]

    Lots of free tutorials, how to build menus / dropdowns/ use of CSS/ loads of
    other stuff :)
    They also have design packs (not free) that are a teaching tool in
    themselves. You can use them as a basis for a website, but by tearing them
    apart, you will learn a ton !!

    Also, a very useful tutorial is for building flexible pages:
    [url]http://www.dwfaq.com/Tutorials/Tables/flexible_tables.asp[/url]
    [url]http://www.projectseven.com/tutorials/css_t/index.htm[/url]

    Just print of the tutorials, make yourself a folder and get out your
    coloured marker or "dog ear" as much as you like :)

    You may not be ready for Project VII yet. Foundations is really tough to get
    through!!! Try The Missing Manual by David Sawyer McFarland next after the
    Lynda.com material.
