Publisher Comments:

The primary goal of this GO! Series title is to teach Microsoft Access 2007 quickly and easily, with an approach that is based on clearly-defined projects. A key feature of the book is the use of Microsoft procedural syntax: steps begin with where the action is to take place, followed by the action itself. The instruction is error-free, clearly written, and logically arranged. This book provides users with the skills to solve business problems using the computer as a tool. GO!’s project-based approach clusters the learning objectives around the projects rather than around software features. Teaches students to solve real problems as they practice and learn the features. GO! with Microsoft Access 2007, Volume 1, 1/e contains a CD-ROM. This edition covers the following topics: getting started with Access databases and tables; sorting and querying databases; forms, filters and reports; designing and building a rational database; automating data entry; advanced reports. An efficient and handy guide for anyone interested in a comprehensive introduction to Microsoft Access 2007.
