4.0 out of 5 stars Much needed assistance for Mac newbie
We have just shifted to a new Mac from a PC and, once you get beyond the basic functions ( bit of guesswork allied to similarities with iOS) , some help was really needed to start to better use Mavericks and the supplied software.

Three weeks in and this guide has proven to be a godsend and is used as a first choice reference tool.

Happy to...

1.0 out of 5 stars not for dummies
titled for "dummies"ie,beginners but it is far too techie and not written in easy to understand language.It presumes you already know what all the tech and computer speak words mean.My conclusion is that it is not suitable for described purpose.

4.0 out of 5 stars COLOUR VERSION PLEASE, 30 Mar 2014

This review is from: OS X Mavericks All-in-one For Dummies (Paperback)
EXCELLENT book for those who want more detailed stuff. Shame it is in black and white. However, I give it 4 stars for content and value but would pay at least half again for a full colour version.

4.0 out of 5 stars So far so good, 16 Jan 2014

This review is from: OS X Mavericks All-in-one For Dummies (Paperback)
About 30% through the book and so far so good. Writing style is technical + attempts at light hearted banter... but its ok it works for me and breaks up the dry details enough to keep you me interested.

This review is from: OS X Mavericks All-in-one For Dummies (Paperback)
Like all of the books in this series it seems to cover the information that you need. You may need to try different words in the index to find your query.

This review is from: OS X Mavericks All-in-one For Dummies (Paperback)
Breaks it down into areas that you can just go into to get information on a particular subject within the whole operating system.
I found the wifi section very informative.
Typically American style of writing but not of puting.

3.0 out of 5 stars Big Manual with Advice, 29 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: OS X Mavericks All-in-one For Dummies (Paperback)
Very voluminous. Author's opinions can be useful but humour not always so. Published at time of release of software and therefore must be based on beta or other early version.
