Top customer reviews
It was not as orderly as I expected and though it says on the back that the user level is 'Beginner - Advanced', it does not show you how to make a database and says as much on the inside.
It is too advanced for me and I wont be able to use it until I have mastered Acces by which time I probably wont need to use it.
Although the front cover states 'The only access book you need', I would suggest that unless you are already accomplished at acces this is not the book for you.
I will perservere and I know I will get my monies worth from it, but that will be a while in coming.
Would I recommend it? yes if you have a basic knowledge before you open the cover and can alaready build a database, otherwise I would suggest something that starts with how to build a database first.

The lang used in the book is pro form the start, but does give a definition. Just got to remember them all. Once the have the book is easy to work which. Some users made find they know a lot of the stuff at the start and just pick up on tips, but the database you make in the book has all the stages on the disk so you dont have to spend time going thought the whole book just to get to were you want.
It is clearly laid out with good examples and the language used was precise and simple to follow
It is a publication one dips into when necessary and I use it in conjunction with internet look ups

The author ask you to open a finished database that is in the CD and explain you general things about it.
In the first chapters the author talks about some advanced topics, like if you were already in the middle of the book, I really don't understand what the author was thinking in doing it this way,
Don't buy this book if you expect a tutorial and don't have enough time (as most of people) to read a huge book, you will learn too little practical information.
Please don't waste your money (as I did).
Too much time looking through information I do not want
Too much time searching for things that I need
Lack of personal progress
Very heavy and bulky book
Seriously though, my main complaint, as in previous editions is the index. Individual commands are not listed or referenced as such, you have to know where they are used as a group and maybe then you can find them. I have to add a separate index of my own when I finally find what I'm looking for. (Try to find IIf sometime.)
