This book keeps crashing... it makes it incredibly hard while in class or doing homework...
I have the kindle fire HDX, the newest one and I am so annoyed right now, but I don't have a choice, I'm a student on a very tight budget and couldn't afford the physical copy of the book or I would have that instead.

Shame on whoever coded this junk book.

This was required for a course. I didn't use it. The material in the course was a paraphrasing of the material in this book and others. You'll learn a lot about Access, that's for sure.

This is a great text if you are trying to learn Access for work or to manage personal information. First, the book is so easy to follow. Second, the book gives a website address where you can download .zip files that are shown as practice through the sections of the book. So, you get lots of examples and step-by-step how-tos. Makes Access finally make sense. I used it to advance place out of a semester university course business majors have to take (I used the New Perspectives Excel detailed book for the Excel part.) I passed the advanced placement test and got 3 semester hours (1 full class) worth of credit when friends from my other classes did not pass and had to sit through the whole semester class of Computer Information Systems (CIS). The New Perspectives series of texts is the one my university uses for the actual credit class too. That tells you how good this series is and that is kept in the library as the reference book.

I has to purchase this book for a class business introductions to technology class I am taking at the University of Michigan and found it a great book in teaching me the basics of microsoft access. The book is set up in a series of "cases" where they apply the uses of access to real world functions, which plays out fairly nice. There are files used in the book that my professor provides to us, if you are simply purchasing this book for your own use, I don't know how you would find these files...

Pictures are aplenty and there are descriptions of EVERYYYY step that you may encounter as you walk through the step by step guide. BUT, if you want to simply have a list and learn of different functions of Access, this book may not be for you. There is a great glossary that would give you this info and page numbers of where to find a single use of it in the book, but outside of that there is no "here are multiple examples and uses of this single function".

Its a basics and introductory book, keep that in mind, and if you are purchasing this for your school use, you will not be disappointed in the ease of use and ability to follow and understand what you are doing in access, but you may find that you fly through the book fairly quickly.

It was a good book, but if you already have a basic understanding of access and need help with certain functions, I think the internet would be of better assistance to you. This is a guide to start someone out from scratch, telling them everything necessary to use a computer, and this software.

Good value and savings for college students. This is a reasonable price for the item which is more expensive elsewhere
