Even with the experience I'd gained, I started at the very beginning of the book (skipping the exercises/practice when I knew that I knew how to do them) and worked through it chapter by chapter. I have had to skip ahead now and then to complete specific assignments at work, but skipping didn't leave me confused, as there are plenty of references to earlier material when needed.
My only complaint is the editing between the sample code and the text. Sometimes, the text refers to something in the sample code, but the code doesn't match what the text says it is. (For example, Listing 3.4 on page 77, and the steps that follow it don't match up completely.) I'm a technical editor who is branching out into VBA, so it's clear this is an artifact of revising the earlier edition, and no important information is lost. This also might not bother someone who isn't an editor by trade.
