First off let me say that the book arrived on time (I chose 24hr shipping) and was in excellent condition. Props to the seller!

As far as the contents of the book itself, I will say that it is one of the better computer books I've read.

So why only 3 stars?

Well, most computer books are downright awful. This one isn't, but at the same time it's hard for me to recommend it highly on it's own merits (other than the fact that it's better than most out there.)

The main complaint I have about the book is that it tries to make it's target audience novice computer users. Let's be frank, if you are a complete computer novice the odds of you needing to work in Microsoft Access are fairly slim and probably doomed to fail. And by computer novice I mean people who don't understand that clicking a button will bring up a dialogue box, or that "hold down the Shift key, press the F2 key, and then release the Shift key" can be reduced to "Press Shift+F2." This would be the equivalent of writing a book on how to restore a classic car for someone who's never even changed their own oil.

The premise of the book is very good. You have a tutorial section for each chapter where you are the "database professional" for a fictitious company. You set up their database for them and teach them about it. A great idea since teaching something is a sure way to understand it. This method is broken up into two sections.

You have the "story section" (as I like to call it) and your "Directions section" (where you are working on the database.) The story section generally explains why you are doing something. The directions tell you how to do it.

This book in my opinion is the go-to for Microsoft Access 2010. I needed it for a course this semester and having never touched the program before this book has been great explaining the different points and features of the program and how to use them. Its paced really well, honestly you can't go wrong with the purchase, it makes a great addition to a resources library.

Product was ordered for a college introduction to database course. Book arrived in mint condition and very quickly. Highly recommend for anyone looking to learn more about database structure, specifically Microsoft Access.

The book is what was required for the class and it was beyond being reasonably priced. I saved a 100 dollars on this purchase, you go Amazon! I buy the majority of my class texts from Amazon and experience similar results every time!
