Pros:
Easy to read.
Great for beginners.
Easy to navigate (table of contents/index easy to understand).
Cons:
It is good for beginners, for the more advanced processes it is not all that helpful.
Dumbs it down alot and makes it seem somewhat childish for people who already understand how excel/VBA work.

Overall, it is a good product. I was hoping it would be more in depth but it will get the job done. It gives you the basic tools you need to code in excel VBA, and helps the user understand how it all works.

This book is very easy to understand ... I am about a 1/3 of the way through. I wanted a book for beginners, so this worked. I plan to get another book that is more advanced when I am finished with this one so I can continue to learn.

Over the years I have tried many books to help me to learn how to write VBA programs. I have made the most progress with this book. After reading only a few Chapters, I was able to write a few basic programs that solved a few longstanding problems in some of my spreadsheets.

I know this was supposed to be more conceptual but I didn't leave this book feeling like I could code up solutions to my problems, I left it feeling like I needed to buy another book to learn how to apply the concepts explored here.

I was a beginner and wanted to know more about VBA, this was well worth the money and would recommend it to anyone who wants to get more familiar with VBA! Even if you are "self-taught" in VBA, this one is good because it teaches you the correct form to write your code with the correct syntax.
