5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for computer novices. 28 Nov 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If you are new to computing or just want to know a lot more how to do things this is a book for you. I have found it a tremendous help in educating me on my computer over time. Also even if you think you know it all it is useful as back-up of ones memory in case you forget how to do anything not done in a while; its there ready to help.

5.0 out of 5 stars An overload of valuable information. 11 Sep 2013

I have not had the time to read the book from cover to cover. However I have used it as a reference and for what I've needed this book has provided. And more. Very good. Recommended as a reference to any user wishing to learn to implement and expand their use of the Windows XP OPERATING SYSTEM.

Unfortunately, I believed it would help me, but reading through the pages it was very difficult to understand. I suggest that pictures of the computer would help, like your previous book which is now not available. I think this book was misleading to the buyer, making them believe that it was something else.

Yours faithfully,
