I am glad I bought this book. Although it was published five years ago (hence the four stars instead of five) I refer to it often and the easy style of writing and explaining things is great.
It doesn't confuse you with too much techno talk.

Horrible- unless you know absolutly nothing about computers! 21 Jan. 2002
By Dillon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book had to be the most horrible book for novices in the world! First of all, this book covers the bare-bone basics. It's basically only for the people that don't even know hwat Windows XP is. Second, most of the book is devoted to showing only what everyone else knows how to do in previous Windows versions. It does explain a little about XPs new features such as fast user switching and the welcome screen, but not enough. I also find some of the "Go get your system administrator for this one!" extreemly annoying! The type of people who would buy this book are home users. Now how many of us have system administrators running about in our home?
Save yourself the money, and the frustration, and buy yourself another book. You'd have to be a real big dummy to get this one.

Some of us are still using Windows 95 and Windows 95 for Dummies Quick Reference is a great reference tool when used alone or along with Windows 95 for Dummies. It's compact size and alphabetical format assists in finding the answers quickly.

XP for the tech challenged! 9 Jan. 2007
By rockymac - Published on Amazon.com

This is a great book for people who call u with the questions like this!

"Do you know how to change the background on my desktop"

If you get these types of questions? Spend some small change and give them this book!

Your newbie tolerance will thank you!
