This is a very good book if we look to the content: good tutorials on VBA, very useful examples, clear explanations.
But, unfortunately, it is a bad product. There is no access to the codes, as promissed in the preface:
"The companion Web site for this book can be accessed at www.cengagebrain.com. There you will have access to all of the Excel (.xlsx and .xlsm) and other files mentioned in the chapters, including those in the exercises."
At such site there is a box for product registering, but the access code (should be similar to PP8XLP3XD528HC, as informed there) was never provided.
Also, if we spend a time trying to obtain any support, we only find FAQ technical support and sales support. By trying to register a question, after filling a series of boxes, we must inform the educational institution. As a common customer isn't linked to any institution, in practical terms, it is impossible to register the customer or the book in this site.
So, if you like to read extreme small letters (all the codes are small images which size is always the same small, independent of text size you set), if you like to type large codes and if you like to support yourself, then this book is for you.
If you are a student then read on. This book is for non-programming business professionals and is intended as a rough and limited introduction to Visual Basic for Applications as it applies to Microsoft Excel in context of business modeling. Most of the book discusses business models for which the author assumes prior knowledge of business management and for which the author suggests his book "Practical Management Science". If you are a professional developer, this book is not for you and will provide limited value. If on the other hand, your a business manager with minimal programming experience and want to enhance your skills and decision making tools, this book will be very helpful to you.
The biggest problem it that the index is lacking. If you want to find how to format a specific command, you'll be searching through the body of the book for a while because, chances are, what you want isn't in the index.
The explanations also need some work. If you've had some programming experience before you can generally figure it out, but sometimes that doesn't help. When the author references that we covered something in a previous chapter, it would help if we were given a page number or section heading. So again, you'll spend a good chunk of time searching for what the writer is referring to rather than coding.
