    Unanswered: Good Book for Access 2003

    I'm a beginner at access and i'm hoping to be an intermediate user by the fall.

    I'm look for a book that will take me from beginner to expert, thats relatively easy to follow and helpful with examples.

    I was looking at the Access 2003 Bible

    Any other recommendations would be nice

    I haven't looked for Access 2003, but for Access 1, 2, 95, 97, 2000, and 2002 every serious developer needed the Litwin/Getz 2 volume set (the early ones were 1 volume), Access Develop's Handbook by Sybex. It isn't as tutorial as many other books, but once you get past the tutorial stage it is a necessary reference book. Don't leave home without it. Those guys are the best.

    I concur with Don D about the Access Developers Handbook set, probably the most comprehensive set of books to own!

    I recommend these books:

    Lyrics, I found myself in a similar situation about 6 months ago, and I picked up these two books and pretty much read them cover to cover, and I refer to them both almost daily. They complement each other nicely, but if I had to choose one, I'd go with the first.

    Special Edition Using Microsoft Access 2003:
    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...books&n=507846

    Microsoft Office Access 2003 Inside Out:
    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...books&n=507846

    And when you are looking for more, check this one out:

    Access Cookbook, 2nd Edition:
    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...glance&s=books

    Those books and this website have brought me up to speed quite rapidly. Obviously you won't be a Microsoft MVP in 6 months, but you will at least gain the experience to know the right questions to ask, which is always key.
