4.0 out of 5 stars From Zero to almost Hero 18 Nov 2004
This was my first 'In Easy Steps' book bought to help in my engineering career, and it was a great help. I knew very little about VBA before, however after going through the examples and reading about the syntax, I had some cool little programs running. The book is colourful, well written and easy to understand; it is general and so covers a lot of different areas. For a complete beginner like me, it took me to a good level of understanding. Its not a big book, which is of great appeal for someone just starting out, although a seasonal pro in VBA might find it too basic for his needs. I can thoroughly recommend it to a first-timer and will definitely be buying more books from this series.

3.0 out of 5 stars Definitely for Beginners 7 Feb 2007
By Davey
I have done some VBA programming before (years ago) which was self-taught and I bought this book as I need to do some VBA again, but I wanted to make sure I learnt the language properly this time. Unfortunatley I didn't really find this book all that useful as I found it to be far too simplified. The book does give you all of the basic concepts and syntax etc. of the the language, but it doesn't exapnd on any of this to give more details.

The book is very colourful and clear - fairly large print and lots of screenshot graphics. But that for me was the biggest problem. The graphics and large text take up so much room which is why there is so little detail. It also gives the whole book an almost childish feel. I read throught the whole book (including doing most of the examples myself) in a couple of days.

If you're a complete beginner and want to get started quickly and aren't bothered about the details then this book will be good for you. If you're a beginner and you want to know the details then this book may OK to start with, but you'll soon be looking for other books to fill in the missing information. If you're not a beginner then I'd say don't bother with this book at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for beginners 18 Sep 2011
By Bigz
Gives a step by step guide to all functions and teaches in absolute layman terms. Jargon is minimal and always explained; the more you learn the further you wish proceed. Ideal start for any one wishing to discover the basics of VBA.
