Good Beginner Book
Seeing that you can get a used copy of this book for as little as $3.20 I would say that it is definitely worth that. It is a beginner book, but I still found it to be useful. I have been programming for several years and a friend wanted me to take at this book. There were several things the book explained very well and helped me to better understand even after using Access for years. It brings lots of things down to layman terms. If you are not wanting to be a power user, it is probably a decent book to purchase.

Really basic, weak for $
The other dummies books I have read have been much more informative than this one. I was brand spanking new to access and it helped a little, but as soon as I needed to really do things with any power to them, the book stopped short. It is a brief intro into a wide variety of topics, it barely scratches the surface, I admit I am disappointed. Maybe not a bad place to start if you can pick it up fropm a used book store, and definitely don't plan on it being the only book you use for access, no matter how basic your work with access is.

I love the jokes
I love the jokes and I found the book very informative. In case you're not aware, ALL the "For Dummies" books have jokes. That's part of the reason I buy and use them. When everything else is going wrong, all I have to do is look at one of these books and my whole attitude goes from glum to giggly. If you can't understand that, then don't buy this book.
