Title: VB and VBA in a Nutshell: The Languages
Publisher: O'Reilly
Authors: Paul Lomax

Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
Good for beginners too!!

I am very new to programming. I ignored the previous recommendations mentioning that this book was not for begginers and I ordered it anyway. I have read the first three chapters straight through and used much of the book as a reference which I beleive it was meant to be. I found this book together with Access 2002 Desktop Developer's Handbook and Access 97 Macro and VBA Handbook gives me a better understanding of the VBA language. The book is informative and is a fairly easy read. I would recommend this book to any beginner that is serious about learning VBA.

Keep this on your desk

Although a little dry, it *is* a reference you know. And as far as references go, this is a good, dependable one. This is one of those books that I keep going back to, whenever I need help with my DHTML and even CSS. It offers a clear and concise explanation of the DOM, and everything you need to manipulate it.

The book covers a lot more ground than what the title says

First of all, this book is probably one of the most current ones (at the time of this writing) to dive into the waters of Web Design from a Project Management perspective. It has to be noted that its focus is heavily on design, but always tying things to dealing with the client, timelines, cost, etc. I thought the title didn't do the book much of a favor: in fact, if you're expecting to find content focused exclusively on re-designing your Web site, you're probably bound for dissapointment, since there's only one chapter (the first one) that touches on this topic that has turned into a very commonplace nightmare situation for Web people to be caught in these days.
However the book IS packed with a wealth of content about WEB DESIGN at large, following what the authors call the "Core Process" which consists of 5 phases, all the way from defining the project to launching it an beyond. Two things that I found the book incredible about were: the space devoted to the first two phases of their methodology (planning and developing site structure) clearly overwhelms the rest of the book, which we all (should) know to be in line with the way things should be done -"measure twice, cut once." Also I loved the fact that the book is packed with illustrations in full color, as opposed to other publications out there, which limit those to "centerfolds" or B&W graphics. So, like I told you some time ago to go get the book on "Web Project Management" by Ashley Friedlein (published in 2000), I now advise you to get a copy of this book. As a Web designer, Webmaster or Web Project Manager, you will thank me for it.
