5.0 out of 5 stars great for pc dummies 25 Oct 2010

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book for my mum, now there is no stopping her exploring a computers potential. It's easy to understand using pictures as guides through all sorts of problems and situations. If she has a problem, then the book is by her side to assist her, whether it be trying to attach a picture to an email or problem browsing the web.
Highly recommend.

After changing from Windows XP to Windows 7,I borrowed this book from the local library, I thought it was good enough to buy my own copy.It simply explains most of the things you need to know. Only drawback is it does not have an index.

A good 'aide memoire' which is quicker to use than the help menus on navigation screens. There are a few things missing from the book but overall it is well worth the money.
