A good refresher for terms and basic....

A good refresher for terms and basic operations and it explains in great detail about two kinds of code and how they work and it also gives you a nice background knowledge on the linux programming as well as the excel programming. But as far as I see my fascination how everything works will be short lived and my mere interest for listening this book was to learn about excel and linux programming and i saw the title said beginners guide so I figured to give it a shot and this book didn’t fail me and it’s very easy to understand and i know that it is better to master one programming language than to know a little of everything and this book has helped me to figure out which among those programming languages I should focus on and this is the great thing about this audiobook and it gives you a glimpse of the syntax and features of two different programming languages and it is important for us recruiter to understand their work and little about their language and i like how this audiobook is narrated and the author really tries his best to explain the terminologies in easy term so it is easy to understand and this book is a must listen book as an introduction to programming and i wish when I was taking a computer class I would have had this book then and i can now code without any problem at all and this study guide counts with a lot of examples and step by step guides, explaining basic programming examples as well as more complicated stuff.

I've understand pretty much everything so far.

I'm in love with this audiobook, even though when I'm finished in the future and forget a third of what I've learnt, when I take other courses from this company or another, It'll all come back to me, this course is doing it's job great, and I'm proud to say I've understand pretty much everything so far.

Easy to listen and covers a lot of ground!

This is a detailed guide if you want to access the VBA potential hiding inside all of Microsoft Office’s products. There is basic information about how to program in C++ and Python, and also recommendations that helped me understand where and what mistake I made earlier. Most novice learners face serious issues in learning computer programming. This audiobook has been specifically designed to cater the needs of a new learner as well as a skilled programmer. However, a word of advice for new learners is that you must go through the audiobook a couple of times to get a better understanding of the subject. This shall help you transition from a novice to expert. The first reading will help you form a foundation, which can be solidified by a second listening. To get the most of this audiobook, I would advice you to buy this audiobook, where you can practice what you listen. I was really astounded by perceiving what number of imperative recommendations accumulated in such a good length of 15 hrs. Author completed a phenomenal activity. I'll most likely prescribe this audiobook to my loved ones. I really appreciate this book. Thanks to creator.

Fundamental terms and concepts of programming

Daniel Jones (Author) has provided you with a guide for the fundamental terms and concepts of programming. It was a great idea to introduce amateurs to the jargon of the most popular programs before they listen his audipobooks for beginners in the individual programs. These versatile skills will enhance your professional and personal life.

With lot of resources

Its a good match for me as it add theory to my linux programming. Excel seems to be much more easy to run than linax I guess and its very good explained!. Its a great course with lot of resources to go through them in a familiar and easy going way.

I can easily grasp the meaning of the programming

Amazing teaching method. I am a beginner and thanks to the way he repeats I can easily grasp the meaning of the programming. If the rest of the lecture keeps being the same way I am pretty certain I ll be able to move from beginner to intermediate in a short time period. Thanks for the skills.

Very useful advice for programmers

This was a great audiobook for programmers to understand. It had a lot of very general, yet very useful advice for programmers. I loved the theories of programming. But the book isn't really about technology. It's about craft and attitude. That's the thing that makes the audiobook so gush worthy. You listen the thing and you realise "How to grown-ups hack". I wonder how much of this will actually sink in and affect my daily life as a programmer, though.

Lot of useful information

Very complex training, you get a LOT of useful information. However, would have been nice more exercises for the students. But all in all, it was definitely worth the time

Easy to follow

The level of detail on the each small matters that make the code work is very good. The course is easy to follow with a precise point to be explained in each lecture. The lectures are not too long and very easy to follow. Great content

The best VBA course I've taken so far

Very Helpful. The coding details, particularly at the end, ran a little faster than I could absorb, but I think I can go back over the examples and get up to speed. Enjoyed it very much

I went through all ten levels of Daniel's courses. They remained top notch until the very last lecture!

I wISH...........

I first encountered Daniel by doing his 10 book bundle audiobook courses here on Audible. I wish I had come across him many years earlier. I'm learning so much about VBA than I could have ever thought.

I learned a lot about VBA

Good course overall. I learned a lot about VBA. Sometimes I felt as if Alan spent a lot of time going over a piece of code multiple times. It would be nice to have a little more information on on some of the library terms and why you would or wouldn't use them. For instance, sometimes you use Select and sometimes you don't, but I don't really know why. But overall, very useful

Has been a big help

This audiobook has been a big help. I had no VBA experience and was able to create some simple but useful macros almost right away. The ability to jump back and forth when you forget or didn't really understand something is a great resource. Daniel is a good and instructor as well as Bahl also same. The lot of answered questions to help you figure out how to solve your problems.
