Free Training Handouts

I have written a wide range of handouts that I use when teaching Access, Excel and VBA. I am in process of updating them and, as each new title is finished, I will be offering them for FREE download here. Whether you are a student, teacher or trainer, you are welcome to download these files entirely free of charge and use them to help with your studies or your teaching work.

About the Handouts

Each handout is in PDF format and many have accompanying files containing worked examples from the text. Each one covers a single topic in detail and is illustrated with full-colour screenshots. Most are between 2 and 6 pages in length.  The files are not restricted in any way so, using the Adobe Acrobat Reader (download the latest version free here.) you can read the documents on screen, print your own hard copies or even copy and paste text and images into your own documents (please read the copyright notes below).

Watch Out for New Titles

I will be adding to the list of titles so stop by regularly to check for new titles. You can subscribe to my RSS News Feed to be automatically notified when new handouts become available.
