I have been teaching members of the Third Age how to use their home computers for the past ten years and it soon became apparent that much of what I taught during the lessons was quickly forgotten. To overcome this I created a number of revision notes for the benefit of my pupils and it was these notes that formed the original basis for this book.
In this respect I can say that the contents have been extensively consumer tested to provide the easiest understandability of the lessons which make up the text.
I have made a deliberate choice to avoid all acronyms and "computerspeak" within the text without patronising the reader in any way. The book is designed to help the readers enjoy their computing experience by laughing at their mistakes and not taking life too seriously. The learning process is designed to be fun not a frazzle.
There will be a website linked to the publication of the book where readers can put their own questions and difficulties to me and between us we should be able to sort out most of the early computing problemsSee all Product Description
