    Self learn is good. But if you want to accelerate your learning, get some experts to teach you.

    I recommend you learn how to hand code though.

    Learn the basic DreamWeaver interface so you can use it as a code editor and for it's things such as FTP however don't focus to much on the code view. Learn hand coding so you can easily edit code which goes wrong.

    My experience says yes, you can do it I mean you can mange your work (but technical learning is always good).

    it may seem complicated at first but it becomes easy when you get used to it. And yes learn how to code by hand and not let the program automate the codes for you (design mode)

    Yes and no, some stuff you'll learn through screwing around with the software. But eventually you have to turn to Youtube videos to get the hang of it.

    I believe you can teach yourself just about anything on your own.

    It just requires a willingness to learn and some dedication.

    You can learn a bit. But as every one else has pretty much said learn to code as well it makes designing web sites a lot easier. As if you don't like something you can quickly change it with a few snippets of code.but really it would be a good idea to get a good ebook and a few youtube vids or Tutvid.com is a really good site with video tutorials once you've got the basics nailed down.

    Good luck!!!
