Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
On page 48 there is Example 6 that demonstrates how to insert five records into a table. However, the author doesn't mention that you cannot use the example as it is written in the book, and that you have to run the five statement separately. Frustrating!
On page 57 you are instructed to update a Sales table that you have not created (I know, it's in the "Companion Resources". I'll get to that.)
On page 71 you get instructions to order another non-existent table (another companion resource).
On page 73, Example 7 shows you how to order a table by selecting rows. However, the output shown on the page is wrong. It is supposed to put the last names in alphabetical order, but there is no discernible order to the table shown.
Now, about the Companion Resource files. I tried to download them but I got an email saying that they are available only to "qualified instructors"- not just us schleps who shelled out $36 for the book!
Maybe have someone test this book before the next edition!
Each chapter has a series of self-test questions to make sure you have mastered the necessary concepts for that chapter. (and the answers are in the back)
There's also quite a bit of good quick reference material in the back for frequently used SQL keywords (for Access) and general database terminology.
I've found it to be a great book and I highly recommend it.
Good start for beginners in Access SQL. This book is easy to follow and contain enough content to start with. Although it lack content such as CrossTab Query, SWITCH, IIF functions, the other contents are good enough to award 5 stars for beginning to learn Access SQL.
