4.0 out of 5 stars Access 2010 24-Hour Trainer Nov. 7 2011
By VirgilB - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The chief redeeming factor for this book is the DVD which presents each lesson in a way which clarifies and instructs very nicely. However, this book assumes to much on the part of the beginner to easily use the printed page. In chapters that speak of SQL statements, I found no prerequisite instruction to explain what SQL is, or how to find it in design view.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars good for beginners Dec 16 2011
By Ted - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book and DVD is a good starting point for those that have little or no experience with Microsoft Access. Each lesson (62 in all), describes/explains the basic features and concepts of Access along with the creation and modification of those features. Each lesson in the book does not take a long time to read. The DVD includes visual step-by-step examples of each lesson and takes no more than 15 minutes or so; many are less than 10 minutes.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Book For Begginers! July 21 2011
By AgadorSpartacus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is great if you are a beginner and have little or no experience with access. Each lesson has simple steps that even I can follow. There are 62 lessons total and each one is about 30 minutes long to read. The dvd has video examples of each lesson. The sound from the dvd is not the best sometimes.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good supplement to other references Aug. 10 2012
By Warhawks2012 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book contains useful information and illustrations. The video tutorials are a big plus as it helps to see Access in action, especially if you are new to Access and or database management. However, I would not recommend purchasing this book as an all-in-one reference to Access. The authors focus on performing specific tasks throughout this book, and, while this helps familiarize the reader with those particular tasks, it leaves many questions unanswered - "Why would I need to do this?" or "What if I need to perform this task but slightly different?" for example. This book focuses on specific tasks done a specific way, but Access is a complex database system with a vast number of applications and options. After 20 chapters of this book, I could still not even begin the project I set out to complete in Access because it did not line up with the authors' specific examples; however, after purchasing another reference, I was able to hit the ground running.

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.
