Don't Make Me Read!

That was the nick-name I gave this book -- I got so much value without having to read a densely written text. It's one of the most usable, practical, and well designed books I've ever read.
Bottom line: I learned how to conduct beautifully effective user testing with minimal investment, time, and reading!

Definitely a Database Starter's companion

As a complete layman in the subject, I can confirm that this book is a good Guide to learn this application. Unfortunately it teaches little on the Foundations of Database Programming, and many of its examples have to be followed closely along with a Database Starter Manual. Complete Examples enlighten the reader advancing through each of its features. There is little reference to VBA, for which it cannot be judged.I gave it four out of five because of its Huge size, that makes reading a bit unconfortable at times. Definitely worth the price.

Exceptional Book

This book is a MUST HAVE for your collection. Even the most advanced user will be amazed at the abundance of information to tune and 'turbocharge' the Visual Studio IDE. James Avery did an excellent job of choosing and organizing the content - very highly recommended.
