I buy quite a few books on software training. This book rates in the 2-star area and that might be a generous rating. It's frustrating that the authors, who have genuine God-like credentials, can't understand that the novice programmer needs to be provided with thorough, meticulous context. I would give up on one context-deficient section only to go on to the next section that was no better. Someone needs to tell these people you have to sit down with a novice programmer once in a while to review the thoroughness of your step-by-step instructions. Outside of its semi-adequate section to explain the A1 vs R1C1 cell referencing dilemma, I'm not sure what else I learned from this book. In the meantime, I found the 2010 Excel VBA programming book from John Walkenbach to be comparatively supreme at about 1/3 of the way into the book. I got a chance to look at some of the Walkenbach book in Barnes&Noble before purchasing. For another $10(Nook version)--wow!--it's a hundred dollar improvement in the quality of VBA instruction at least at my beginner-level disposition. Of note, a 2013 Excel VBA version of the Walkenbach book is now available and I'm hoping the quality will be as good as the 2010 version.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
