Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
In some of the chapters, the accompanying sample file is incorrect, such as the one dealing with query parameters in chapter 25. Some understanding of VBA code is necessary to know why the code snippet is failing. (The table name is different). Other chapters, such as 27 on update queries show or reference database objects that are missing from the example.
As an Access Database refresher course, the book is excellant - but for the beginner, there is simply too much errata and inferential leaps to be very helpful, and is rather confusing. Yet, as I stated at the beginning, the DVD will overcome these obstacles for the most part.
In summary, if you have specific tasks that you need to learn and you see those tasks in the chapter contents, this book is for you. Otherwise, make sure you have another thorough reference handy, but this book (with the cd) is still worth the price.
