No Longer A Dummy!
on 29 April 2012
Being a long-time Apple Mac aficionado, I was a bit reluctant to take the "Windows" route for word-processing. However, when my girlfriend showed me that Word, in particular, was still the most comprehensive tool in this field, I decided to take the challenge and bought myself Office for Mac 2011, Home and Students version which I promptly installed on my iMac (which I had recently updated to OS X 10.7 "Lion"). Now all I needed was some help for me to get to grips with Office for Mac's idiosyncrasies.
Being a bit of an IT dummy myself, what better way to learn than to buy the latest tome in the "Dummies" series of manuals, which are written especially for those like me. Office 2011 for Mac for Dummies fits the bill completely. It is sectioned and indexed in a way that really helps those who are not really of a technological bent - like me - and it is written in a sympathetic way without ever being patronising.
I am now really getting to grips with Word. Excel may be the next mountain that I attempt to climb, but knowing that easily-assimilated advice is at hand, I no longer feel like a technophobe.
