Format: Paperback
This is a great introductory manual for Access 2010, going through basic features systematically, and at the same time introducing intermediate concepts in an easy to understand manner of presentation; however, if you are looking for something a little more advanced eg to prepare for the MOS examination in Access, then perhaps something a little more advanced might serve the purpose better.

The paper is good (not too flimsy, and without glare), with good colour pictures to make pleasurable reading. I would strongly recommend it to those needing a start in this very powerful piece of software.

Format: Paperback
The format of the "Teach yourself visually" series is perfect for people who learn best by seeing and doing. It is practically rather than theoretically based. If you want to know the technical details about of how things work in Access, then you need a more advanced and/or a more detailed book.

For me and my own particular learning style, I have to say that this guide was just perfect. Microsoft Access is a daunting piece of software for the beginner, and I felt that this book tamed it for me. The guide's format provides different coloured pointers superimposed upon screen shots of the software, with a calm narration "talking you through" each process.

My only slight criticism is that the examples are all based on US culture and geography, and I found some of these confusing or simply off-putting. I appreciate that the US is a far bigger book market, but a UK "tweak" would certainly have been appreciated.

Simple to understand and follow. Great for those not familiar with Microsoft Access. Would recommend if you are wanting to learn how to set up a database.

Teach Yourself Visually, Access 2010 1 Feb. 2011
By dclaro - Published on Amazon.com

Teach Yourself VISUALLY Access 2010 (Teach Yourself VISUALLY (Tech))
I have average computer skills and I've used the "Visual" books before--and this one is a great one. And here's the reason why. It's like having a tutor over your shoulder guiding you every step of the way. Each step is numbered and marked on a picture of your screen--in color. Every chapter is clear and concise and very easy to follow. Like I said, the tutor is with you all the way. The Microsoft Press books are also very good and I also use these, but I prefer the "Visual" books. They just seem easier for me to understand at my skill level. I've been using computers since 1985 at the corporate and personal level, so I do have some experience.

Visually Access 2010 4 April 2011
By Marion E. Fitzpatrick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I learn faster when someone can show me how to do something and answer my questions only when I need to know it, if you are anything like me, then you will appreciate this book. It is a great book; it is exactly what it says. A visual teacher, it offers lots of examples.

crud 4 Feb. 2012
By Caraculiambro - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is awful.

There are programs where the extreme visual approach is best, but Access is not one of them. Come on. This book is ridiculous: an entire page of a screenshot to show you how to x-out of a window, and so forth.

I was put upon at work to get good at Access this year. Unable to get classroom instruction, I perused the books available quite thoroughly. Finally I went with Access 2010 for Dummies, and have been very happy with it. A few months in, I look back at this book and, while it was slick enough to induce me to purchase it, I see now that I could never actually have learned with it.

Making it Easy 11 July 2012
By yonder - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased several books trying to learn Access beginning in the year 2000, and attended two seminars and did not learn how to use Access, now after all that time and expense that problem is over; I started using Visually Access 2010 and after only a couple of weeks of study I was able to use my software. After all I am a senior person, and that for me is a great lesson in, " An old dog can learn new tricks".

Access offers a great method of keeping a list of contacts and keeping a record of personal or business information. The information is able to be sorted in a variety of catagories.It is a must for personal or business record keeping because it is right at the computer without having to look through a paper file. There are many uses for Access and it makes life so easy. I like Access because it is not a standarize program but one that will adapt to the user.

Teach Yourself Visually Access 2010 18 Dec. 2011
By Jo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I found this book to be very useful-- I purchased it to accompany the college workbook I had. It gave a little more information and some useful tricks to use that the workbook didn't. Would recommend it to anyone who needs that extra hand so to speak.
