About the Author
Laurie Ulrich Fuller has been writing about and teachingpeople to use Microsoft Office since the 1980’s. Her teachingcareer goes back to the time before Microsoft Windows – whichmeans she also remembers the first time she taught people to use aWindows-based application, and a student picked up the mouse andaimed it at the computer screen as though using a TV remote. Nobodylaughed (except Laurie, after class), because everyone was new tothe mouse back then. As new as the mouse was, so was the idea ofkeeping a database on a computer that could fit on your desk— and Laurie’s been there through every new version ofAccess — as Office has evolved to meet the needs of usersfrom all walks of life — from individuals to hugecorporations, from growing business to non-profitorganizations.
Since those early days of Office and Windows, Laurie has personallytrained more than 10,000 people to make better, more creativeuse of their computers, has written and co-written more than 25nationally-published books on computers and software —including several titles on Microsoft Office. In the last fewyears, she’s also created two video training courses —one on Word 2003, and the other on the entire Office 2003 suite.She runs her own company, Limehat & Company, offering training,educational materials, and web development services. She invitesyou to contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org, and to visit her personalwebsite, www.planetlaurie.com, for more information.
Laurie would also like you to know that despite being able toremember the world before Windows, she does not remember a timebefore cars, television, or fire.

The first third of the book is devoted to explaining what controls are and the simplest, most basic concepts that only a person who had never run a Windows program would find to be educational. I mean, do we really need to know what buttons and pick lists are and how they function? ... how drag and drop works? Give me a break!
We'd like to know how to create and use these controls within Access, of course. But that's not really addressed. Most of what you can learn from this book you could figure out easily by inspection. The online help is decent and available if you get stuck.
After buying way too many books on this subject, the ones I found most useful were: "Access 2007 Bible - Groh et. al." Access 2007 Bible This is a monster tome and at least half of it is dedicated to VBA programming. But it's clear and well written and covers every topic.
The second is "MS Access 2007 Forms, Reports and Queries - McFedries." Microsoft Office Access 2007 Forms, Reports, and Queries I bought the Kindle edition and have mixed emotions about the implementation on Kindle, at least the Kindle App on the iPad. The information is exactly what most people will need to know knocking out a useful application. But, the illustrations are very hard to see and do not expand. However, the links to different parts of the book are quite useful. I wish I also had it in paper back.
Unless this is the first time you've used a computer, Dummies is way too simplistic. And, the jokey approach is really lame, not informal, just dumb. I know it's the format, but this comes off like sixth grade humor. It's a matter of taste, but I find it distracting and irritating.
My opinion is that there is about an hour's worth of skimming that might be helpful for the truly uninformed but to create any kind of working application you will need to read other, more informative books.
However, the next sentence is "Whether you've used one of the older versions or
this is your first exposure to Access, here's where you'll find the essentials
you need to make this database system work for you." Agreed only after the
The problem is that it is really very difficult to write a book in the "For
Dummies" format without making the flow of information assume no previous
knowledge. A special marginal icon flagging points that are new to 2007 would
help the "old pros", but probably just confuse the newcomers.
There are better ways to bring yourself up to speed on Access 2007.
I highly recommend it, if you're looking to learn Access 2007 with a minimum of time and effort. Had me completing my first real database with forms and drop-down lists within an hour.
