I don't quite understand how this book got out of the proof-reading and technical review phase and made it to press. There are so many errors in the code and approaches that don't work, that a true beginner to VBA for Excel could easily get lost.I would want to say that this book is an okay starting point for learning VBA, but I would be afraid that a beginner would get hopelessly confused. I think a better book for learning Excel VBA is VBA and Macros for Microsoft Office Excel 2007 (Business Solutions) by Bill Jelen and Tracy Syrstad.While I am sure Mr. Jacobson is probably a decent developer and a nice person, he is a sloppy author. He relies too heavily on recording macros and then reworking them to try and teach VBA coding than actually taking the time to explain coding theory and getting you to think how to tackle the problems on your own. Even the fact that he has you type the code first before he explains why is annoying. I would rather the explanation first, giving me a chance to see if I could work the code out on my own, then have him tell me what the most efficient method is. I realize that this is probably also due to the Microsoft Press Step-by-Step formula for writing these books, but that is another reason why I do not like the series as a whole.There are many typo's in the text with regard to code that wouldn't make the Macro's run if you didn't catch the error and then there are several things that don't work.
