This course was just what I needed. I had tried books before, but they largely just tell what each tab and button do. In this course, the teacher used the project to teach how the program worked. Then, when explaining what button to push and why, it all made more sense. I especially liked the inclusion of the reports and the macros. Excellent explanation of the design view, which was such a mystery to me as I tried to work through other intro books. The project-based approach with a lot of direct instruction as required to complete the project is definitely the right approach in my book. Thanks.
