    Excellent.

    This is the third "missing manual" that I have purchased and, like the others, it is continually referred to for any questions that arise working with Access 2010. It gives a good overview of what is new and what is changed in the 2010 version. It is a wonderful resource, giving detailed yet concise descriptions of how to use Access 2010 and is suitable for anyone, from beginner to advanced users.
