I was so happy when I saw I am able to purchase an ebook version and not just rent it (no huge book cluttering up your apartment).
Anyway, I can't recommend it.
1.) The writing is so little that I had to constantly zoom the pages. Another review mentioned that you can see only half of the page and I confirm this statement. You only see a little part of the page.
2.) You can't read it on your Kindle. Only on the kindle fire (not that big of an issue, but thought worth mentioning it).
3.) The big bummer is, you can't search the book for a keyword. What works well on the kindle with every novel I have read, doesn't work on a book where you actually need it badly. And I tried and tried.
I tried on the ipad, Kindle Fire, on my laptop with cloud reader using Chrome, Safari, and Firefox, on a Windows box with Internet Explorer. No option to search in the Cloud reader and Ctrl F is not working. It doesn't jump to the keyword you are searching for if it is not on the page your are currently viewing.
4.) At 78% in the book (around Location 15698 of 20224) the formatting is badly screwed up. From that point on EVERY word is formatted as a link. No possibility to make Highlights or Notes. And trust me reading through a blue underlined text is not funny. And this goes on for rest of the 22% of the book.
The book I think is not bad for learning Access. I liked it quite a bit, but I used it not as a self study. I was attending a class in which we used this book. My instructor recommended to rather buy the book than rent it as it is a good reference. Anyway, you may want to check out another ebook version of this book if you want to buy it.
P.S. If anybody reads this and knows how to search for a keyword, please let me know. I'd highly appreciate it.
