Access 2003 in Easy Steps (In Easy Steps Series)by Mark Lewin
Access 2003 In Easy Steps is a book for the complete novice. It recognizes that in order to become a competent Access user one needs to have a full understanding of the basics: Databases, Tables, Queries, Forms and Reports, before hoping to harness some of its more powerful features. Rather than just being a reference, a glorified version of the online help already packaged with the product, Access 2003 In Easy Steps develops the reader's understanding by stressing the practical advantages of learning each concept. Each is amply demonstrated using the Northwind sample database that comes with Access 2003.
Unlike other books on the market it doesn't stop there. It outlines some of the more complex and powerful features of Access 2003 and paves the way for further reading and experimentation. Importantly, it tells the reader why it might be worth taking the time and trouble to learn these.
In true "In Easy Steps" style, this book is low on "fluff" and high on content. Each concept is amply illustrated in full-color with screenshots and accompanied by concise and easy to understand instructions. Sidebars provide useful extra information and warn against pitfalls.
Access 2003 In Easy Steps is a great book at a great price!
