1. The book enables "New to VBA and even new to Excel" users to ramp up to proficiency quickly.
2. The book is laid out in a reference book manner so that if you need to go after a specific item you can do so quickly.
3. Despite serving as a primer at several levels, the book serves as an in depth explanation text as well; e.g. , events, user forms, etc.
I got this for a VBA coding class a couple years ago and let me tell you that both this and the Excel 2013 Bible, link below, saved my grade that semester. It really helped me understand how to use VBA for various applications and went through step by step on how to code. I am not a coder and by the end of the semester I was writing hundreds of lines of code for not only the class but for my own personal use. Would absolutely recommend for any novice in excel VBA.

Using this reference I was able to construct my first VBA macros and from there design and implement now daily used VBA applications that automate our processes. Using what I learned from Excel VBA I was able to dive into PowerPoint VBA which, while different, shares many similarities with Excel VBA. Our level of effort for daily reporting has dropped from three hours to less than an hour using these programs and it all started with this reference book.
1) Yes, you should read each chapter at least skimming the material. I am a certified Microsoft 2013 Expert and I still found new details that I wasn't aware of during my initial read. The book covers the Excel program's features - not just the VBA aspect. Again making this a great reference for anyone looking to take advantage of all that Excel can offer.
2) I have had minimal experience as a programmer. I had eight months of C++ programming training last used 13 years ago when I was a Senior in High School. I also tried out some Java programming for a few months but never went anywhere with it. The point: Anyone can learn this as long as you put in the time to understand the material. It helps to have a program in mind and then try to build it. My first editions of my now daily used programs were terrible. They crashed all the time, had unexpected results, but I learned to handle all of these a little bit at a time.
3) Get the hard copy. You can take a hard copy with you anywhere and make notes on the pages if need be. Or place bookmarks easily. I have a reference manual on Kindle for KML Programming and I really didn't like it at all.
This is exceptionally well written and clearly explains the changes in VBA in Excel 2013 (there are some extensive differences in the new version of Excel 2013), for which I needed a reference to help explain them (which this book does) (Please note that I use VBA a lot for my work, especially in Excel so take my statement as easy to read and explain based on my experience!)
There are numerous examples found on the book website, thus explaining the lack of CD (or DVD) that accompanied the past books in this series. Don't hesitate to partake of the offerings... it is helpful in a lot of the examples to actually see the spreadsheet being discussed while reading about it.
