Not for the beginner,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: VBA and Macros: Microsoft Excel 2010 (MrExcel Library) (Paperback)
While I am getting some good information out of this book, I have to say it is not for the beginner. Unless you are naturally intuitive, logical, persistant, and have a good understanding of Excel and programming, you will find this book frustrating. The problem is that a lot is left "un-said". Luckily, I have some of the previously mentioned qualities and I was a whiz at the old Lotus macros (soooo much easier) so this isn't completely new to me.
I have since bought the John Walkenbach book, "Excel 2010 Power Programming with VBA" and hightly recommend that for someone just starting out or not very intuitive. Walkenbach fills in a lot more of the gaps and really explains the whole VBA experience from the beginning in good, concise detail. After I get through more of the Walkenbach book, I'll return to this book because it does have a lot of useful information, I'm just not prepared for it yet.

Did as you suggested in this review and happy that I did it. I am now about to finish Walkenbach book ''VBA for Dummies'' and will jump to the next book and buy Bill Jelen's book. Thanks a lot.
