    A great start

    If you are new to Access 97, this is the book to get. It makes no assumptions as to your previous knowledge of Access and teaches everything you need to know to get a project up and running. I have purchased several Access books subsequent to this one, but I still use this book for easy reference. Not all of the Access books cover everything Access is capable of, but this is the best one I've seen for beginners and even more advanced.
