Laurie Ulrich Fuller has been writing about and teaching people to use Microsoft Office since the 1980’s. John Kaufeld is a popular For Dummies author. Her teaching career goes back to the time before Microsoft Windows – which means she also remembers the first time she taught people to use a Windows-based application, and a student picked up the mouse and aimed it at the computer screen as though using a TV remote.

I'm not going to spend too much time on this review because there are good reviews already posted that point out the shortcomings of Access 2007 for Dummies.

The first third of the book is devoted to explaining what controls are and the simplest, most basic concepts that only a person who had never run a Windows program would find to be educational. I mean, do we really need to know what buttons and pick lists are and how they function? ... how drag and drop works? Give me a break!

We'd like to know how to create and use these controls within Access, of course. But that's not really addressed. Most of what you can learn from this book you could figure out easily by inspection. The online help is decent and available if you get stuck.

After buying way too many books on this subject, the ones I found most useful were: "Access 2007 Bible - Groh et. al." Access 2007 Bible This is a monster tome and at least half of it is dedicated to VBA programming. But it's clear and well written and covers every topic.

The second is "MS Access 2007 Forms, Reports and Queries - McFedries." Microsoft Office Access 2007 Forms, Reports, and Queries I bought the Kindle edition and have mixed emotions about the implementation on Kindle, at least the Kindle App on the iPad. The information is exactly what most people will need to know knocking out a useful application. But, the illustrations are very hard to see and do not expand. However, the links to different parts of the book are quite useful. I wish I also had it in paper back.

Unless this is the first time you've used a computer, Dummies is way too simplistic. And, the jokey approach is really lame, not informal, just dumb. I know it's the format, but this comes off like sixth grade humor. It's a matter of taste, but I find it distracting and irritating.

My opinion is that there is about an hour's worth of skimming that might be helpful for the truly uninformed but to create any kind of working application you will need to read other, more informative books.

The cover blurb states "Access has undergone an extreme makeover! Agreed.

However, the next sentence is "Whether you've used one of the older versions or
this is your first exposure to Access, here's where you'll find the essentials
you need to make this database system work for you." Agreed only after the
"or".

The problem is that it is really very difficult to write a book in the "For
Dummies" format without making the flow of information assume no previous
knowledge. A special marginal icon flagging points that are new to 2007 would
help the "old pros", but probably just confuse the newcomers.

There are better ways to bring yourself up to speed on Access 2007.

This was disappointing for a geek who likes to work the nuts and bolts of programming because much of this book gives instruction about using the Access program's built-in wizards but not so much about how to make things happen when the wizard doesn't produce the effect desired. I got a lot more useful information by searching on-line for specific directions.

As with all other books in the "For Dummies" series, this breaks down the learning curve into smaller, more easily-digestible chunks.
I highly recommend it, if you're looking to learn Access 2007 with a minimum of time and effort. Had me completing my first real database with forms and drop-down lists within an hour.

Arrived quickly and at a good price. I've programmed in VBA for my Access databases ever since the software was released, but a few little things have changed in the last 25 years and this simple reference can quickly set me straight when I run into a minor change.

Just what I need to understand this program!

I have rarely been disappointed with Dummies Books on any subject. You won't get a lot of depth, but hey, that's not the point of Dummies Books. You will get:

An excellent overview of usable basic code
Easy to read & follow
Helpful & clear advice
I borrowed a VBA book from a programmer buddy of mine at work to try to teach myself, but it was a developers' reference and most of it was way over my head. I bought this book, and it is much better for someone like me, who has had little to no exposure to VBA and programming in general.
