(5.00 out of 5) Kate [ 16 March, 2017 ]
Very good overview of access. I entered the course with zero access knowledge and now feel able to complete a basic database.
(4.90 out of 5) Talia W [ 16 March, 2017 ]
Overall the course was very well presented, structured and informative. The contents of the course were split up over the two days to enforce learning and provided an increase in difficulty, which was great.

This has been a great course. We have gone into the detail that I needed in order to use Access. I can now go exploring different solutions on my own using Access.
(4.80 out of 5) Sue B [ 19 December, 2016 ]
Best one yet due to the time allowed for actually applying the new skills. Perfect balance of theory versus practical to maximise learning within such a short timeframe. Good relevance to 'real-world' requirements and delivered in such a way as to feel casual - not rushed.
