Easy Steps How To Study Database 2007

Working with Database or Access can be frustrating particularly if you're interested in it and don't use it daily. Even some of classmates I study Database with complain that the course is such a nightmare. In fact, Database is a challenging course if you know how to push yourself to study it . 

It might not effective method at all to push yourself towards something you dislike - and I've been in this situation as well. The structure of the material course sometimes influence our dislike or like to the subject, and because of this we often think that the subject is too hard for us. Like in ECDL course for example, on Database module most the main subjects in the course are discussed in early material. 

Step 1: Read the first lesson ONLY

I know it's boring - whether you understand the material or not, particularly if you don't. Give time for yourself for few days if you don't like to push yourself to read it. Back to the material and read only the first lesson. 

Don't go to the next lesson if you find the first lesson is difficult - sometimes people do it by curiosity. If you do this you'd get more frustrated.

Step 2: Practise with the Application

While you read the material, open the Access application to ensure you know how to do it and also to get used with the tools on the application. This practise give you more motivated to explore your knowledge even you haven't read the material.

Step 3: Get to know the four main subjects (Tables, Forms, Queries and Reports)

In Access there are four main subjects that we always work with: Tables, Forms, Queries and Reports (see the image). This is what most of my classmates get mad from studying Access. The four main subjects are likely hard to understand, but again, try to read the material and practise with the application - read the material first and then practise it in the application.



The tables are generally the very mainly data  and the other main subjects i.e. Forms, Queries and Reports, are followed when they're needed - normally they are used in a scale large data. 

When you know the difference of the four main subjects, you'd find easy to use all the functions in the application.

First step is the hardest one - but I'm sure you gonna do it if you have to (especially if you want to complete the ECDL course). As I'd mentioned earlier - don't go further if you still find it hard. Remember, working with a computer is only need a lot of practise as the more you practise the better knowledge you will get.
