VERY WELL presented with concise information, and good pace, and very thorough Especially for a Beginners course. You have removed most of the intimidation of creating nice looking forms in access and answered questions that other on-line courses don't. Read More...

I sure wish there were more instructors like you on all sorts of topics. I have  taken two courses on Udemy.  I learned so much more in just the first few lessons here then I did in the two beginning to advance classes on Udemy. Read More...

What did you like: Absolutely everything! By far the best instructional course I have taken including MBA, and Executive level courses. The teaching of both the how and why including the good, better, and best methods is especially beneficial and effective. Read More...

Thank you so much for your kind words, Michael. I'm glad you enjoyed.

Yes, the old Theater mode is nowhere near as good as the newer courses, like the new Access Beginner 1 and my newer Developer lessons. Problem is those old videos were recorded at that lower resolution, so even if I update the web interface with the new design, the videos are still the same small size. I'm working on re-recording them, but it's extremely time consuming. I'd rather focus on developing new lessons.

Yeah, I get what you mean about building databases FOR you. I was in that business for years. Don't want to be in it anymore. I'd rather teach. I do have the Access Developer Network where you can post your job requests though.

The customer / employee / contact / order stuff that I build in the classes isn't for everyone. I get that. However it's an example that I use for teaching the material that almost everyone can relate to. Think of it like playing with Legos. All of the pieces are the same. I just show you how to put them together one way. You can make up other combinations yourself.

It was well put together, explained and demonstrated. I like that you add little anecdotes here and there to expound on a particular issue. It is apparent that you have done this for a long time. I always look forward to getting the next lesson. As always, your videos are easy to follow and understand. An excellent source for instruction on how to use Access. Read More...

Hi Richard:

   I want to say that I started learning Access on my own when  i started it in 2004 and then when I came across your website and now i'm learning a lot more with the courses and I love learning the courses I get every week.  I will definitely continue to learn the courses fro the best instructor.  I love Access ever since i started using it in 2004.  You are amazing with teaching the courses and also with the different helptech videos.  I want to thank you so very much for helping me learn from the best instructor and I will keep it up.  I just I know you cover it in your developer classes.  I googled how to clear combo box after searching for a record so I don't have to click in the combo box to clear it wevery time i want to search for new record.  It will clear after I search for a record.  Again, thank you to the best instructor.

I have previously worked with Access albeit it was over 20 years ago and I thought I knew a lot about database design. I have been humbled in a big way. My company at the time paid a few thousand dollars on training and software that did not come close to the level of knowledge I am acquiring through The Learning Zone.

Hi Richard:

    I want to say that I love the video with the report listbox.  I did the extended cut in my databases so I don't have the tables.  I love it.  I'm learning a lot of things from you.  You are the best instructor.

Better than Adult Ed Upload Images   Link 
Matt Pattison

I've taken a few Adult Ed Access courses and they cram everything into 3 hours a day for 3 days. I always need to review. I like the idea that I can watch it until I get it. When you introduce a new topic I like to see more than 1 example to use/or apply the topic to your database. Great course. I never thought I would feel comfortable or confident in access, but I am now. Rick you're a great teacher. I LOVE THIS COURSE! I just dumped a database I was working on and built it the right way.

Thanks for the kind words, Matt.

P.S. Everyone else: I just found this in a survey Matt took back in 2013. See, I do get to all of your feedback. Eventually. :)

I have been developing in Access for about 15 years and your never to old to learn something new, you can teach old dogs new tricks. It's like reading the Bible every time you read it it's like a new book you learn something new. Thank you Richard for your time and GREAT training videos. Read More...

Boss Will Be Blown Away Upload Images   Link

I started a uni degree with the main objective to develop good data bases for my workplace. I wish I had discovered this site earlier. It is much more in-depth than the 12 week unit that covers data base design. I am very excited about the data base I am now designing and can't wait to finish it and show it to my boss, I know that she will be blown away when she realizes the amount of man hours that I will have eliminated with this data base.

Wow. Thanks for the kind words, Michelle. I'm so glad to be of help. Yes, I too started going to the University at Buffalo (New York) and took a few semesters until I decided it just wasn't for me. This was 1990 and they were making me learn things that were out of date since the early 80s (Pascal, Fortran, etc.) So I dropped out, started a business, and haven't looked back since. I consider myself 100% self-educated. School is good for some things (I wouldn't go to a self-taught brain surgeon) but for a computer nerd, you can learn with books, videos, or just by tearing a database apart. I learned mostly from books (love the Bible series) and by ripping apart the Northwind Traders database in Access 2.0 wayyyy back in 1994.
