I needed this book for my Database 1 Class at College and I think it's a great way to learn how to use Microsoft's Access program. The book shows every procedure step by step making learning very easy.

Clear, Concise, and Thorough July 30 2010
By Big Blue - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A lot of people complain that the Shelley Cashman series are too step-by-step and are boring, but I think it is precisely the step-by-step nature of the series that sets it apart from other computer texts. Everybody learns differently and some people don't have an intuitive nature with computers, which is why the Shelley Cashman series is perfect for a wide range of people. Access 2007 is no different. It has very clear and thorough projects for the student to work through, so they can learn every aspect of the program as well as online testing and additional projects for the student. The comprehensive concepts and techniques version is worth every penny, because the other version only cover part of the topics, but this book covers everything. After completing this book, you will truly be competent at Access 2007, and you can even take a test to be certified in it. I couldn't be happier with this book, unless they changed it to a spiral-bound version or something more durable, because it can take a beating just by using it frequently.

Not the best book. Feb. 8 2009
By T. R. SCHAEFER - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have never found the Shelly Cashman series to be very good. But I needed some additional Access 2007 problems, and so I purchased this book. The approach to topics is rather haphazard, and they are not presented in a systematic way that would aid you in retaining the information. Much better is the Access 2007 text by Joseph J. Adamski and Kathleen T. Finnegan.

Good reference April 21 2013

A very basic book with lots of illustrations. Would be very good for someone just out of high school learning Access. A bit rudimentary for someone with some database knowledge.
MS ACCESS 2007 GREAT BOOK Jan. 22 2012
By FRIEND4LIFE - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am using this book Ms Office for Tutorial and must say it is a Excellent Book to use also with the use of the data files that you are able to download with the book. That makes it easy to get a better understanding of the lessons. Ms Access 2007 helps to give a better understanding of the Database. There are different types of Ms Access 2007 and I like this one of the Comprehensive Concept, due to it gives more Details of the explanation of the database. This book gives alot of pictures and gives you visual of how your work is suppose to look like after you have completed the lessons. The lessons are easy to understand. The Ms Office Access 2007: Comprehensive Concepts and Techniques is a Great Book to chose, This Book is Very Detailed, and before I ordered this book I had no experience using Access and this book has given me a better understanding of using the database, with the use of all the lessons in the book.

bought 2 of these to take a crash course in Access 2007 to make database files to collect research data, it has very nice glossy color pages, clear and easy to read, and although the condition was "used" it did not detract from their utility.
