I bought this book because I had stumbled around writing VBA for Access "by feel" for too long and I wanted something to fill in the gaps. Go into any bookshop or search this Amazon site and you will find little on VBA, even less now that Visual Basic is moving to .NET. Yet VBA is the underlying language for many Microsoft applications - Outlook, Office, Visio - as well as many other non Microsoft products. Steve Cummings explains why and what the standard is. It is this very diversity that makes it difficult to write any comprehensive book about VBA; explain the Outlook object model and Excel users will scream, "What about us?"
Let me continue by saying what I think this book is not. It is not a "Teach Yourself Programming" book; I would recommend that readers have some experience and/or appreciation of programming in some other environment. It is not an in-depth treatise on any of the applications that comply with the VBA (or COM) standard. How can it? Such a book would be 24 inches thick and out-of-date the moment it was published.
So what did this book do for me? It first gave me an understanding of the commonality and differences in the VBA applications family. I now like to think of VBA as the mortar that holds the different object model 'bricks' together.Read more ›
The author just seemed to get too cute with the subject matter. Also, the lack of real world examples really hurts this book. You can't step into object-oriented programming when you decide to invent your own objects for everything.
The explanation of how loops work is okay and the constants information is not bad. Overall, however, get a real technical book and try to learn it that way. It will be harder, but you will be better for it.
The chapters I needed the most were only on the CD, in poorly converted PDF files.
