Question for my Access Students
By Richard Rost
10 years ago
I'm currently developing the outline for my new Access 2010 tutorial series. I need your feedback to decide which way to approach the lessons. Should I keep the "little bit of this, little bit of that" approach that I used in my previous Access 2003 lessons, or should I cover ALL of one topic and then move on to the next.
In my current classes, I show you just a little bit of each topic, trying to provide a broad base of knowledge first, then diving slowly deeper into each topic as the classes go by. You learn a little bit of table design followed by a little bit of query building, followed by some forms, and so on.
However, people always ask me questions like, "which classes cover reports?" Well, for them the answer isn't easy. Of my dozens of classes, report design is covered in many of them. For someone who just wants to learn report building, they have to buy ten classes and are only going to benefit from 1 or 2 lessons in each one.
So, this begs the question: am I better off designing my classes in a more traditional sense. Class 1 covers tables. Class 2 covers queries. Class 3 covers forms, and so on.
What do you think? Post your thoughts, ideas, comments here and let me know what I should do.
I'm working on the Access SQL Seminar Part 3 right now. I expect to have it finished in a day or two and then I'd like to get started right away with the Access 2010 lessons.
