I got this book as I am learning how to use a mac laptop computer with this operating system. The book is very good it starts very basic and works up from there. With in four weeks I was using the mac as if I had never used a Windows computer .
I am very pleased with this book because it has guided me through every step I had to learn to be able to use the mac laptop and also I was able to go back as many steps as I needed to to refresh my memory when I got stuck on any point. The way the book has been written I was also able to skip some bits as I could do them.

It came very well wrapped and early I was very pleased.

A good book to read if you are a novice or, like me, you'd sussed out 90% of the OS and wanted the gaps filled in. I'll pass it on to a friend now - it's not a book to keep on referring to once you've got from it what you want to know.

As with all "dummies" books there is a lot of information packed into it, it helps to make this operating system more friendly.

I am new to iMacs . This book did n't answer many of my basic queries e.g. Why does the add widgets extra widgets section list many widgets that the computer does n't want to open (non-approved developers). How do I set a weekly alarm buzzer at a set time and day? Why is it so difficult to set up mail if using BT in the UK ?
Good on what it covers but considering many prospective customers will be Windows converts it could be a lot better.
