Please don't buy this book; I have (after I bought) seen several VBA books which seem better

The author's first example has a lot of code in it which is redundant and it is also a NOT a good introductory example. I didn't know VBA a lot and even I managed to halve the lines by 50%!!!!!! Then, on top of that, he doesn't follow up to explain what the lines of code mean. You would think that a dummies book would do this. This is why I got it. It IS A DUMMIES BOOK JOHN. Hello World would have been a better example.

Then, a lot of repetition on the next few pages; people want something new, some meat and not a book with a few light-hearted jokes.

Walkenbach sometime later advises on declaring variables. Why is this then not mentioned at the beginning of the book

He re-introduces the macro recorder. This is fine, but why introduce it at the very beginning of the book (1st chapter) when a simple example should have been

Honestly, this book does have 2 stars and not one, because it does have some good usable code. What a waste of money. Would be nice if Amazon would let us view more of the book rather than just the contents and the index

Cost: 17 quid. You can get ones for 7.93, 8.90. The more expensive ones are 16.89 and 25 quid and do you know what they give me to trade this book in? 1 pound. Ha ha ha ha ha.

The book is easy to follow at the beginning. Once it goes into more complicated things it lacks clear examples so it gets more difficult to grasp for somebody with no previous knowledge

Yes amusing but very informative and I used it as a tool to instruct excel users on how VBA simple programs could be utilised using the "developer "tab in Microsoft Office Suites. The way the author introduces you to each program was amusing and contained useful tips. It's not the auricle as you do need some experience in basic VB programming to understand it fully.

As soon as I started to read the book, I immediately idenfied myself with the excel user this book is aimed at. So easy to read and simple to follow, the explanations are kept at a level any "dummy" can understand, I thourougly recommend this book to any budding VBA programmer.

Most dummies guides are generally good at what they aim to achieve, this one is no exception. Shame about VBA itself though, and it has returned as a disease vector, lots of spam now contains malicious VBA code. See [...]

A good book to get you on the road to VBA programming if you already use excel. Not too technical.

It does what it says on the cover but it does make unnecessarily hard work to digest in such tiny, unrelated portions. However it will, eventually, resolve my problem and at a price that was extremely attractive compared to recommended selling price. Delivery from Amazon was, as is usual, excellent and free.
