An excellent resource in code writing and application for database development. - Fleur Pepper


"This is the best class I've taken on Udemy. There isn't a wasted minute in these videos. Thanks, Bruce!" - William Vicars

"I used to think I was an expert at Access until I took this course. Bruce has a way of presenting material that makes you learn it on the first view. He goes into all nooks and crannies of the subject presented. I highly recommend this course for beginners and experts alike.." - Rafal Krolik

"Bruce has created a really extensive course about Access. This course is built in bite size bits and every section teaches you an additional function in Access. The best thing about this course is that it is very low key and is really designed to help out the non-programmer. VBA might be very intimidating but this course shows you everything. The pace is good and every part is being explained in an excellent manner. I highly recommend this course especially if you want to learn and while learning create a wonderful tool that truly is useful." - Nicky Wong
