This is actually a pretty good book once you get around its conceit: that the author is in the classroom talking with his students. Had he refrained from the classroom conceit, he would have required only half the paper for the information that was in the book.
But okay, assume you can get past that. How is the book? Well, in terms of content, it's excellent. The author takes you through the phases of building a database, showing you each step and explaining each aspect. He starts with database theory and then takes the reader through the design of an Access database. Then he teaches how to connect to and manipulate the database using the Visual Basic programming language objects. He talks about the data control explaining its main methods, events, and properties and then spends 3 chapters on creating and updating recordsets. The book doesn't give you enough information to make you an expert (you would need books on DAO and ADO for that). What it does is step methodically through each of the basic sequences of building a database, giving you a good foundation to continue learning.
