Total Run Time: 5.75 hours

Not too long ago, databases were on mainframes and only skilled personnel were allowed to work with them. For most, that meant a lot of frustration both trying to communicate what was needed and then waiting to actually get it. Today, databases have come to the desktop so anyone with basic computing skills can organize, manage and retrieve their data. Doing so well and efficiently does require a basic understanding of what a relational database is and how to properly design and use one though, so let Total Training for Microsoft Access 2010: Essentials get you started on your way!
