Let me make this clear. DO NOT BUY THIS book. There are so many options online to learn how to use Access. Especially in this day in age, there are so many free alternatives. The publishers of the book should be utterly ashamed for pricing this book this high.I had to buy this book for a college class, fortunately I got it used, but I still grimace on how much I had to pay for it.1. for a 90+ dollar book, you would expect to see the publishers use binding.... not rings. This book could have been 3 hole punched and I wouldn't be surprised.2. This may not apply for all, but the ink in this book smears bad. Like a 4 year old attempting to use a pencil but smearing the lead all over the paper bad. I noticed a lot of smudges just after a few minutes of using the book. My professor's book smeared but not nearly as bad as mine. I do want to point out that my book was NOT a counterfeit because the code in the book works for online materials.3. Mistakes everywhere. Typos, confusing sentences, the author clearly has no idea on how to make a viable database. Author uses questionable naming schemes when creating primary keys, and makes 101 mistakes on database design.4. The homework/exercise activities are a joke. They are incredibly easy and you will not get anything out of it. This book only dives into the very basics of database design and is impractical outside of a lab testing environmentPLEASE stay away from this book. If the professor is making you buy this book, drop the class. There are so many better ways to learn about using Access.
This book poses many problems for the instructor, particularly in regard to the teaching resources such as PowerPoint presentations and tests. The presentations are visually poor. Depictions of screen-shots are too blurry to be discernable by most students in a classroom. Homework problems and even test problems must be scrutinized to ferret out mistakes. Starting with Chapter 5, all test questions have the same answer, A. It is very time-consuming for a professor to overcome these shortcomings. The previous edition of this book did not suffer the shame that this edition spews onto the unsuspecting.
I had to come back to college to finish it and I was required to get access, word, and excel books. Books are written in very confusing way, its is very difficult to follow an understand. Worst instruction book i have ever read. I use PC computer since 1994, i build my two last pc so I am not a new user. I ended up using FREE videos on a YT to prepare to my exam.
This textbook provides all you need to know about using Access 2013 and then some. It is easy to understand, provides step-by-step instructions, and easy-to- follow hands-on exercises. Buying it through was a lot cheaper than buying it at my campus bookstore. It was a great buy!
Waste of money - code sis not work, my daughter had tl retake the class due to confusion with classwork(several versions in same class).Really angry when we found out later that most could be found online - if you knew where to look.
Was needed for school, to expensive but it's a text book what do you expect, gouge the students all you can.
Not worth the paper it's printed on.
Exactly what was needed. Was able to follow along in class assignments no problem. Nice step by step instructions that carry you on to being able to use access very proficiently.
