This review is from: Windows 8 For Dummies Book + DVD Bundle (Paperback)
Andy Rathbone hits the target again with this book and DVD combination. Everything in the book is laid out and progressed in an eminently readable way. The DVD is comprehensive and can be viewed in small bites. One minor niggle is the annoying [to me] audio 'marker'at the beginning or end of each segment. However, this can be minimised with judicious use of the remote volume on/off button.
I am still in the process of reading and viewing the book and the DVD before I get around to installing Windows 8 in my desktop pc. I am always rather reluctant to change to a new operating system, but I feel confident that this book and DVD will make the process easier.
Very good value - a terrific bargain.

If you don't want to get rid of Windows 7, it is quite easy to create a separate partition on your hard drive and install Windows 8 on that.
Then whenever you boot your computer you have the choice of which operating system to use.
It took me 5 minutes to create a 100GB partition and about 30 minutes to install Windows 8 that I had burned to a DVD.
