They only ship you 2/3 of the book,
This review is from: Microsoft Access 2010 In Depth (Paperback)I just received my copy and was stunned to find that 500 pages are missing. The text stops after page 1006. Immediately after that comes the Index where page numbering starts at 1506. You can download a .pdf that includes the missing 500 pages. I bought the paper book because I wanted a bound paper book. I did not want an eBook. I can't speak to the informational merits of the book because I haven't read it yet, but I am very upset about the missing pages and feel I should post this warning immediately.

Sneaky ... It's not all there,
This review is from: Microsoft Access 2010 In Depth (Paperback)When I ordered this book there had not been any user comments yet. It arrived today and the comments by Mr. White are exactly spot on.
I think that the fact that 1/3rd of the book is not printed should be mentioned prominently in the book description.
If you turn pages starting at the beginning of the book you can see that chapters 24 through 33 are marked (Online). Online also? No. Just online. I went to the index looking for Online to find the URL. Nothing listed. Not until you get to inside the back cover is there any mention of where you might go to find the missing chapters.
For the real deal, go to the que.com site. You have to type in 13 digits in the URL while the back cover tries to slam shut, but keep trying. You have to set up an account and in my case the first requested password was rejected because it supposedly was similar to my email address. It was not remotely similar. Using a well-known swear phrase worked just fine. From... Read more

Objective Rating - 99% Dont Want Omitted Pages,
This review is from: Microsoft Access 2010 In Depth (Paperback)I really like the In-Depth Series. But I bought a different book because of these reviews. Afterward, I quickly purchased this book. It is the most current version published and it shows. The missing 1/3 or 500 pages contains stuff that most of us won't read. Honestly, how many of us will be writing code for databases? Or, want to read about it? Most of us would rather edit or adapt existing RDMS. The publishers made the right choice, download the info if you want it and let the rest of us carry a smaller book. 500 pages would have added 2-1/2 inches more to the width of this book. 1700 pages (5-inches thick) vs. convenience? I'll take convenience.
The book provides a website to download electronic full-versions in: pdf, epub (as in Kindle, Sony, Android) and versions for Nook, Ipad, Ipod, etc. That seems reasonable considering practically everyone lives on the 'Net. If you still want a cd - burn it! As for content, the title says it all - it's in-depth. That includes... Read more
