If you think that one book will contain all you need to know, well, GET REAL! What you will find is a gradual approach to the subject, with a very good example of several database applications (Actually 3) that will lead you to obtain a solid foundation on the subject. Database theory is covered so that you have a basic understanding. The Visual Basic way of accessing databases is well covered. There are good examples.
From here, I would recommend getting more advanced books, depending on which direction you want to go. But this book is all you will need to get up to speed, write some basic to intermediate level programs, and learn the lingo.
a computer book in 3 weeks. I was mistaken. The authors
put this book out in a big hurry, and it shows. The book is
poorly organized in that chapters are seemingly thrown in
as an afterthought to touch on various topics. The touch is
a light one too, since only minimal information is presented
in most of the chapters of the book. The chapter on SQL is
a good example because the authors present only enough
information to show how SQL can do cool things, and then
they advise the reader to go buy a book on SQL. Why bother
writing a chapter on SQL?
A teach-yourself book should really have enough information
to get the student going, but this book is more like a guided
tour of 15 cities in 10 days. A lot of words are expended in
the presentation of fluff while the reader is left to ponder on
some way to shape said fluff into something useful
When I went to the computer, I ran into the errors other reviewers have noted. But they were pretty obvious. And I don't think this book contains more than other computer manuals. Proofreading standards in general are awful throughout the printing trades [I'm a former typographer], and the usual poor organization and lack of clarity of writing in computer manuals compound the problem.
But given all that, I got a lot out of the book. Most important, I haven't found anything else that covers this material that comes even close to it.
If this review can help save just one of your readers from making the mistake of buying this turkey, I'm glad I took the time to write it.
