Successful ICT Projects in Access by Pat M. Heathcote

Reviews 'A real pleasure using the book'. 27th May 2003 Reviewer: Chris Clarke: 'I have purchased many books on Access in an attempt to learn as much as I can about what I consider to be a fantastic piece of software and I have to say that your book Successful ICT Projects in Access (3rd Edition) was one of the easiest and most comprehensive books on the topic that I have come across. It has been a real pleasure using the book and my ability to program has increased beyond my wildest expectations, Thank you. Excellent!' 'I found it clear, concise, realistically priced and is helping correct my deficient knowledge immensely.' 20th February 2003 Reviewer: Dr. Geoff Fowler, Technical Director, Oilfield Consultancy: 'I am Technical Director of a small Oilfield Chemistry consultancy and taught myself, rather badly, Access. However all the books I bought and many online resources assume a level of knowledge hence the many mistakes I make in building databases for myself. I was browsing PC World and came across your Successful ICT Projects in Access. I found it clear, concise, realistically priced and is helping correct my deficient knowledge immensely. I will try and get your VBA book as well. Excellent! I think they are wicked!' 'A first rate text which cannot fail to improve grades' 3rd May, 2002 Reviewer: Miss Fozia Akram a student from Wakefield College, England: 'I would like to thank you for publishing such great books, I have purchased the A2 ICT and Access books and I think they are wicked. Thank you Payne-Gallway and thank you Pat Heathcote, lets just hope my revision pays off. A first rate text which cannot fail to improve grades'. 'The 'paint by numbers' approach is exactly what is needed as it quickly gets results.' 22nd September, 2001 Reviewer: Kev Randle from Sheffield, England: 'This guide to producing an 'A' level project is going to take some beating. Some of my students have made fantastic progress in just a few hours from a starting point of zero experience with access. The 'paint by numbers' approach is exactly what is needed as it quickly gets results. Probably feeds the 'instant gratification ' that most of our students are supposed to demand. I don't care. As a teacher it has certainly made my life a great deal less painful and I can recommend this text to anyone taking, or teaching the AQA ICT or Computing course. It's not even hard. Life saver!'. 'I wouldn't have been able to do the project without it.' 4th November, 2001 Reviewer: A Student from High Wycombe, England: 'This book pretty much lays out what is needed in the project in simple terms so that it can be adapted to your own project. Not only does it give the IT side but also the written work which is in part more important than the actual system. I wouldn't have been able to do the project without it. Excellent book as an introduction to Access'. 'It is by far and away the most practical publication I have read on the subject' 1st October, 2001 Reviewer: Sean Scaife from Dublin, Ireland: 'As a newcomer to Access, although over 20 years in the IT industry in various capacities, I found this work to be invaluable in being able to grasp the fundamentals of Access development. It is by far and away the most practical publication I have read on the subject, In fact I would go so far as to say that it is an object lesson to most authors of introductory works in so far that is PRACTICAL in real world sense. I have already passed on my original copy to a former colleague and have this morning recommended it to another colleague who will be purchasing it. I have no problem spending ...on other manuals but this work has helped me to produce working solutions in a very short time. Congratulations, A fan, excellent'. 17th January, 2001 Reviewer: A Reader from Leicester, England: 'This book really helps with the AS IT course when you need to do your coursework. If you are planning on using Access for your coursework, I really recommend it as it comes in very useful indeed'.
