5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use and follow for the beginner 20 Dec 2011
By RJP the Book Boy TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Using your PC Made Easy from Which?
I got this book for my Mum and Dad who are in their late 70's and have taken the plunge into the cyber World. It took a long time to convince them that a computer would be a good idea but they finally saw the advantages like video links and emails to relatives abroad. My Mum was astounded when we set up a Skype link with her sister in South Africa. She now emails on a regular basis and sets up her own video links via Yahoo ! To get them this far we used 'Laptops and Mobile Devices' another book from Which? This book is in a similar format.
The laptop we gave them for Christmas last year had Office 10 on it as a trial so I booked it for them. They have not really used it until we gave them this book. Now my mother has gone into overdrive wondering just what she can do with the Laptop next! This book is in a logical and easy to read format and deals with the very basics of Windows and Office 10. There are chapters on:

Windows 7,

Word 10,

Excel 10,

Powerpoint 10,

PDF files,

Photos and Video using the software supplied with Windows 7,

Plus a jargon buster at the very end.

The layout and approach is very easy to follow and the information, although very basic, is essential to get going. Obviously the book like the others in the series is aimed at the very beginner and would not be much use to someone who had used a computer with confidence before. To cut a long story short the book has done its job. My mother is producing lists, helping the grandchildren do animations in Powerpoint and experimenting with picture and video editing. My father is using Excel to help him beat the tax man and appraise various investments he has.

3.0 out of 5 stars Simple but Easy 15 Mar 2012
By Wendy Jones TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This book is prt of the easy series from Which and it continues in the same vein as all the others. It certainly is easy and would suit those who want to know the basics of using a PC and Microsoft Office 2010. It breaks things down into manageable pieces and is certainly easy to follow. The reason I gave it 3 stars is I already have quite a good knowledge of computing and some of the information was not deep enough for me. This is certainly a good book for a beginner or those who want to enhance their basic knowledge

4.0 out of 5 stars office 2010 myths untangled 23 Feb 2012
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Microsoft Office 2010 is a good piece of software but I suspect that I'm not alone thinking that I am not using it to it's full potential so better get one of those "which?" manuals to get me through. The book is competent enough but a bit dull but learning about Microsoft office is dull anyway so hey ho. Worthwhile purchase if this new version of office has perplexed rather than produce results.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply simple ... 26 Jan 2012
By pacem et amorem TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is perfect for anyone who is nervous of the PC or knows someone who is nervous of the PC. Simple but not patronizing, this Which? guide to Office 2010 is wonderful. It gives handy hints, superb little shortcuts and makes life easy for everyone. Whilst I already knew most of what it had to tell me there were some little tricks I had not uncovered. It is also a super little book to have on hand to show the person come seeking advice - it explains it in a better way than the sought out 'adviser' usually can!
Wonderful Which? advice again!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good if you like learning from books 8 May 2012
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This book is probably aimed at the older person who prefers to learn from books as everything can be picked up online or just through "playing" with the software. Much of the new Office is, in my view, intuitive anyway. I think it is great for my mum's friends who are new to computing at 75 and 80 years old! The 80 year old is already using email and Skype with ease and finds manuals such as this a reassuring thing to have beside the computer, he seems sure he will blow up the stockmarket or something if he presses the wrong button! Personally I was largely self taught being thrown in at the deep end at work in the 1980's - here's a computer, use it. I did however attend a couple of courses (adult ed) in Excel and general PC maintennace which I did find somewhat better than book learning but it's personal learning style really. If books suit you best, buy this one.
