The writing is 5 star, the information 2 star, the graphics which are often referenced 1 star. To explain the rating: The book often discusses thing that are basic to any windows machine, how to expand a window, adjust boxes and inane things like that. Seriously, if you’re attempting to learn Access and don’t know that kind of stuff good luck. Next, it does a good job of explaining the theory of relationships between fields, but almost no information on how to do it and the many kinds of one to many relationships available. Let alone when to use what kind. Next, the same problem extends to all areas covered; it asks you to build things without telling you how, but does take time to tell you how to save a file, over and over. Finally, the graphics are useless. On an iPad they all look like computer windows and thats it. On a computer they look like they have columns and whatnot, but good luck gleaning any information from the blurry pixilated texts. I’m giving this book 3 stars because of the excellent way the theory of relational database structure is described and the instruction on what Access could do if you had another book that told you how.
