4.0 out of 5 stars I wish this book had come with the program. 9 Nov 1998
By A Customer
Flight Simulator 98 came with a booklet with airport maps and that is all. As a newcomer, I wish this book had been in the box. I tried for several hours to land at the designated runway and always failed and so sought a manual. INSIDE MOVES is a good one. It first explains the program; its drop down menus, options, preference settings, etc. Next the language and conventions of flying, planes, and airports are covered. The instrument cluster is explained next, along with the variations for the different aircraft. I suppose the first areas might be considered ground school because the author takes you through these topics before he puts you in the cockpit on the runway; the next section. From normal flying procedures you are taken through emergency situations, flight planning, navigation, and finally some stunt flying.
I recommend this manual to Flight Simulator newbies like myself, experienced users might try Kiang's book. I give the book four stars. The book is well written and illustrated but the index could be improved. If you want to find the page describing how to use the localizer on the Boeing 737, you'll have to thumb through the pages some.

This book is good if you want an easy Guide to gettingstarted, an explanation of the instruments, some suggestions for landing, etc. , but I would reccommend the "Unauthorized Game Secrets" version. It's the identical book, but it has an additional chapter (note the 30+ extra pages in the description). I did not compare page to page, but they have the identical lessons, pictures, etc in most chapters. I don't just mean similar ideas, I mean exact wording. None of the FS98 books are very high quality like some of the books for other Microsoft Software (say Excel or Word). These are more of a basic level book. The only reason I purchased the book is because the word going around the web was the Help menu on FSIM98 was useless. I figured for $15 or so. I could avoid the hassle. If you don't mind spending $15 for basic assistance, I would get MFS98:Unauthorized Game Secrets. The other book "Inside Moves" is basically a re-hash of the same stuff. I have not read the IFR Techniques, so this review does not apply to it.

FS98 came with my new computer, so no help files came with it :( I learnt the basic from trial and error, but could never go where I wanted to with ILS, and all that! Anyways, i then learnt that this book excisted, so I bought it! It helped me a lot with my game and now I can land on a runway in the right airport! Great book. If you are stuck with FS98 buy this book!
