I dont try ot pretend I know alot about computers, but with this book i was able to build, load and successfully run my computer with very little fire (only joking).
Its laid out in a way that even the simplist of fools can understand it.
It is alittle pricey but its something you'd keep and refere back to.
So whether your a complete beginner at builds or a whizz kid at DOS this book is for you.
Thanks for reading

I was very impressed with this book. Its well written and doesnt contain confusing techno waffle. With it's help it gave me the confidence to upgrade my memory, add a CD writer and add more hard disk space. Excellent book for someone opening a pc for the first time. It gives you the essentials to get the job done but dont expect a huge amount of depth.

Whilst fixing my computer, this book and two others proved invaluable in help me sort out deep problems with my system.

After a lot of work to create the basis required for a wireless home network, my hard drive failed. This book proved very useful in showing just enough information to be helpful, and not too much to confuse the non -professional reader. I have pushed my computer to its limits and feel this book is beneficial to read. Where it is now lacking, I know what to do to improve it. This is a fantastic manual for the interested computer user on a budget.

I am writing this review from the pc I have built and I found this book to be marvelous because it teaches you what you need to look for and what you need I personally chose to build a "super pc" but it teaches the basics sadly though this book is now outdated in the processor areas as the AMD's have a different method now and have better models etc...
I'm sure there will be an update soon though when this comes out I recommend you buy this

at the same time i bought this book i also signed up for an online computer course with learn direct. I got a discount, but it was still eighty quid. The course was a nightmare- dry, written like a computer programme itself, and unintellgible.

This book, on the other hand is informative, occasionaly witty, simply set out and a bargain at any price.

I choose this rate because it is my first manual it is old but it was all I could afford at the present time. I think that I will preform a upgrade very soon. But I will have to read it again just to make sure it is done properly. I have windows 7 & windows 8 in easy steps they both tell you what you really need to know. The diagrams are very clear just like the manual but up to date with what operating system I use today. I will recommend this book to someone who can show me how to preform a upgrade on windows 7 & 8 .
