Says 9 books in 1 and that is probably its downfall. It tries to do too much and be all things to everyone. The chapter on VBA is very basic and appears not to cover Temporary Variables at all in VBA (although it is touched upon in Macros

Probably too big. I like my "dummies" book small enough to slip in my pocket. Ah well, it's a big subject!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's great for it's targeted adiance. 6 Jun 2014
By owns - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I enjoy the 'For Dummies' books. They're simply and (in my experience) dummy proof.
Access 2013 For Dummies is no different. They take things slow and explain for these who may not even know a thing about databases.
The only down side is it doesn't go very in depth - though no one should expect this from a 'For Dummies' book.
But I covers the basics perfectly.
I taught myself Access and VBA already understand databases and programming fairly well. I bought this book to make sure there were no holes in my understanding and has a reference.
I'd recommend this book for anyone looking to learn Access and may not have a great understanding of databases design or Microsoft's office programs.
However, for someone trying to expand beyond that of moderate, look elsewhere.
Still, a nice read.
5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal Learning Tool for DB Newbie 15 April 2014
By JWP - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I highly recommend this book (or Kindle e-book in my case) for anyone new to the database world. The majority of users of computers should have access to this dynamic technology even if it's only during a limited-time trial period of MS Office. During that trial-period you can easily read this book while also experimenting with and following the exercises/code listed in the book. I agree with others that it would be helpful to include a link to an existing DB but you can also take the accountability and responsibility approach as well and just enter the code and create/develop your own database which will help seat your new-found knowledge and capability. Database experience is opening a whole new level/dimension of IT computing for users such as myself and this is a great place to start!

There are no sample databases, that I can find, which makes it pretty much useless. There are three authors, only one of which ssupplied his Email. I contacted him, said where's the data, he said, which chapter.
