    Question ColdFusion beginners books


    Hi

    I've just started to learn coldfusion and was wondering what you think about the books that are around, and which you think is best for a complete beginner?

    Also, is Homesite the best editor to use with ColdFusion, I have Dreamweaver MX but have heard that this is not the best application to use?

    Thanks

    The best beginner CF book is Ben Forta's book, just get the normal one and not the "advanced" one.

    Dreamweaver is OK to do CF coding with, but ColdFusion Studio / HomeSite+ is generally preferred as it is totally optimized for CF.

    Thanks

    I had a look at one those books, it was ColdFusion Mx: web application construction kit. Would this be a good example?
