Overview

Exploring Data with Access 2016 is an introduction to Microsoft Access with an emphasis on topics relevant to data exploration and analysis. The goal is to help the analyst gain a true understanding of data and the information it contains.

The book is written in an easy-to-understand tutorial style, with new topics introduced in a logical and intuitive sequence. Numerous screenshots are included, so you won't need to sit with a computer as you read the book.

Additional features include "See the SQL" sidebars that allow interested readers to learn SQL as they are learning Access and "Focus on Analysis" sidebars that provide details on a number of useful quantitative topics.

In short, this is the only book you'll need to gain a working knowledge of Access and how it can be used for data exploration and analysis.
