Microsoft Office 2007 is a major upgrade from the last version of Office; Access will also be greatly revised. Alison Balter is the name that Access developers will trust to guide them through Access 2007's new features. She has the rare ability to take complex topics and explain them clearly, as shown by the success of her ten previous books on Access. Balter is known for providing real-world solutions to specific Access development problems. She also is known for her ability to back up her practical examples with just enough underlying theory to give the reader a good overall understanding of Access. In short, this book will provide beginning and intermediate Access developers with everything that they need to know to design and build Access 2007 applications. It should also appeal to DBAs and power users who want or need to get started building custom Access apps. This latest book in her Mastering Access series will not disappoint her many fans who anxiously await each new version, and should win her new fans as well.

After receiving this book and scanning through it, it seems to be well laid out and easy to follow. There are a lot of good examples and screen shots and I like the inital information given at the beginning of each chapter. However, the thing that really upset me is that after I purchased this book based on the description, I found that in order to get the "complete" book, I have to shell out additional money. The description mentioned some appendices, which was part of the reason why I decided on this book over others. However, in order to view these I have to open up yet another online account with SAMS Publishing to view a part of a book I was told in the book description that I would get. You can print these pages out, but the bottom of the pages cut off because it slaps a disclaimer sentence at the top of each page, pushing the bottom part of each page down off the printable area. Additionally, you cannot print them all at once. You must advance to each page one by one and print them out one by one. The remedy? You can purchase "tokens" to download these appendices for a monthly cost of $22.99 per month for 10 tokens. If I just spent $60+ on a book, why should I pay an additional $23 just to get access to the rest of the book that should have already been included, which is a fraction of the pages of the entire book? The description of the book should tell the whole story. I like the book, but the publishing company apparently has found it's own version of adding "baggage" charges just like the airlines do now. In the future, I will be avoiding anything published by SAMS publishing, which is unfortunate for the authors that utilize the company.
