The best book on Access
To teach an intermediate course on Access I had to read most of the Access books in the market. By far this is the best one as it takes the reader from the very basics to advanced programming in Visual Basic for Applications. Too bad that Mr. Viescas did not write the Access 2000 version.

The worst book I have ever purchased.....
Let me start by saying that I have bought and read no less than about 50 technical books in my lifetime and I have never written a review good or bad about any of them. With this one I feel like I have to write a review so that no one else makes the same mistake I made.
I have been in the computer field for over 10 years now and I recently decided that I want to learn Access. I am already quite familiar with most of the concepts and want to learn how to write a small Access program. I started with Access Step by Step and it was great. The next step in Microsoft's plan is to read this book.
What a completely terrible book. It is all over the place. It goes on and on about stupid stuff like using a keyboard and mouse and never, not once in all 1,000 pages, show you how to create forms to manipulate data. He says look at my bad examples on the cd but never once talks you through designing your own form. Terrible, terrible book!

Too many words
The problem I see with this book is the author takes too much time explaining a thing, you can probably write the same content in half the number of pages (500) without losing any content.
