An Excellent Reference


I needed a reference for work, one that was easy enough for a my co-worker, a non-programmer, to use and yet detailed enough to be useful for me. I browsed through most of the current versions of Access references, checking the details, coverage and examples for something that might meet my requirements. While it is impossible for any book to be everything to everyone, this one comes very close to meeting my needs with regard to Access.
Note, this is not a manual for learning SQL, or VBA. Both essential if you want to really step beyond the basic elements of Access usage. However, this book addresses the essential usage elements of working with Access - tables, queries, forms and reports - as well as several less `basic' elements like security, environment customization, and multi-user environments. The material is extensive, the examples are well explained, and the topics are well organized. If I were to teach a class on Access, I'd use this as the text.
I have not been disappointed with this book. P-)

Necessary Reading for Any .NET Developer


This book deserves all the praise given by other reviewers. All I can add is a run down of some of the answers this book provides to questions that should be asked by all .NET developers: (1) in-depth understanding of versions, versioning, and AssemblyInfo.cs, (2) thorough understanding of the GAC, public/private keys, etc., (3) excellent, low level coverage of Attributes, (intra-language) data-types, delegates, events, exceptions, etc.
All the examples are provided in C#, which I'm happy for, but VB developers need this knowledge too. Perhaps more than C# developers because it differs from what they've known. It seems C# is becomming Microsoft's language of choice, so VB developers should take advantage of this opportunity to jump in head first ... before Microsoft pushes you in.

Great for Beginners!


I bought this book as a beginner, wanting to learn the basics of Dynamic HTML and mission accomplished! The examples are great and I know I'll be able to keep this book around as a reference for a long time.
