I really enjoy the practices that goes along with what you're learning. There's no better way to learn that actually doing it!
The "Dummies" web site doesn't show this edition only a very old (2007 I think) one with no indication a newer edition exists.
Don't mistake the beginning for the end: this book points you in the right direction, but it can't help you MASTER VBA. If you follow the directions, you will learn how to start exploring the world of VBA and how to teach yourself--this book is only meant to give you the framework to hang later learnings upon.
Overall, very clear, a well-thought-out sequence, and I LOVED the intro to "object oriented programming."
Ignore reviews complaining that the book didn't tell them how to do this or that particular thing. The purpose is to get you oriented, and to empower you to start looking for other resources to solve this or that particular problem. The book does a marvelous job in outlining the main points of what Excel VBA is all aobut.
