CSS book or not?


some people recommended me to have a book for CSS some thought the courses here are enough. What do you think? Are the courses here enough for learning CSS?

2 Answers

Treehouse has a very extensive library on CSS, so I think it should be enough for most people :) A book isn't necessary, since the internet has almost infinite resources on CSS (and almost every other language) freely available.

Not that a good book would hurt, of course :)

Thank you for your reply. I just wanted to understand which level the css course will lead to? as I'm not sure if I there will be other issues not covered in the course that I have to look for in books or online!

Some great CSS resources:

CSS Tricks - Chris Coyer - Website Mozilla Developer Network - Website CSS3 - The Missing Manual - A book

Hope that helps...best thing to do is just build your own site....that will test the skills.

There's of course always more to learn.

The real test to see if you are ready is if you can create:

  • menus
  • buttons
  • ribbons
  • tool tips
  • pricing tables
  • forms

Here's a great test to know if you proficient in CSS is if you can re-create this entire page

If you don't know how to make those in CSS, I'd suggest you check out the relevant videos from this CSS course
