This book is a perfect resource for someone like myself who really wants to learn visual basic, but doesn't know where to start. It is an insanely powerful tool but takes time to master. That's where this book is so helpful. It assumes you know nothing and gives you everything you need from the ground up to master. This is the missing user manual that I knew I needed when learning Excel. The beauty is that Excel is already an advanced program that can do all sorts of crazy stuff. When you add in the power of visual basic, you have everything you need!
This book explores Excel VBA programming in detail and it's very easy to follow. If you're like me, a regular person that does not know a lot about "Excel VBA programming" you might think why should i read this? I will tell you that the book is very useful if you are trying out with Excel work in general. It depends on how far you are going to take it, but i followed the book towards the end and i felt like i gained a lot of knowledge about the Excel VBA Programming.
Absolute joke. Covers almost NOTHING. Book is 9"x6" in LARGE font. 54 pages with no index and a third or more of the book is pictures of simple dialog boxes. The book is 50% white space.What little it does cover, functions, subs, variables and operators it does by example with VERY little detail or explanation of the "underlying principals." The examples are extremely trivial with trivial comments about the examples. Worth about 50 cents, certainly not 10 bucks.
My exposure to VBA has been to ignore it whenever I can or to copy code from forums and try to make it work without really knowing what I was doing. I got this book hoping that it would give me a better overall view of how the code needs to be constructed and what the vocabulary and syntax needed to be.I read this almost cover to cover and it taught me almost exactly what I expected it to. I learned a few things that got me through a current project and gave me a much better feeling for the environment that I can hopefully build on in the future.
On my journey towards mastering Excel I stumbled upon this author. I've read other books of his on this topic and I must say that they're great. Each and every one disects a specific problem and provides an easy solution to it. VBA programming is something I don't need immediately but will in the future. With the help of this book I was able to teach myself the secrets which weren't that complex afterall. The reading is very understandable and simple to apply.
Had some difficulties with learning excel vba programming, took me a long time to understand the basics, this book was straight to the point and made programming fast and easy for me. Would recommend it to anyone wanting to learn excel vba programing in a fast and easy way

This should be called "Excel VBA Programming for Really Dumb Dummies". It only covers the absolutely most rudimentary concepts of the VBA programming language. You wouldn't be able to write much of anything useful in Excel VBA after going through this book.
