4.0 out of 5 stars For everyone 20 Nov. 2012
By EW - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Long time windows user, and I/S consultant. Never read manuals, just sit down and investigate.
Not with Win8, reality is that you might get stuck somewhere and not know how to exit. Read the first two chapters, then set aside and read only when you need to.

1st two chapters will really get you going.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book - even for those who are more nerd or geek 11 Nov. 2012

I am a Microsoft MCSE, and I bought this book to help figure out the Windows 8 interface that Microsoft has decided to curse the world with. The book explains a lot of the basic stuff that you know, but it is a great kick start to get past the initial hurdle that is the horrid Windows 8 interface. For beginners - it is still at a level that they can get into Windows 8 fairly painlessly. For us nerds and geeks who appreciate the Windows 95 to Windows 7 style interface, this book will help you bridge the gap.

5.0 out of 5 stars So helpful 3 Dec. 2012

This book is wonderful. It has been so helpful to go through every section of the book and follow along on the computer. I have been learning new things each time. Andy has a great sense of humor too and interjects little nuggets of sarcasm! This book is great not only for new Windows 8 users but for anyone who may not understand all there is to learn on a computer. There are so many aspects of a computer that I never knew before. Can only do so much with the one I use at work and have never had a real computer to use at home. I am outlining all of the important points. It is going to be very helpful to refer back to when I am proficient at Windows 8 and need to look something up. So glad I bought this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't live without it 19 Dec. 2012

Do what I did and get this when you get Windows 8. It's so completely different from any Windows before that you'll need help. And what better place to look for help than the Dummies guides? This book has already saved me tons of frustration, and I haven't even had the computer a full 24 hours yet. Buy it.

3.0 out of 5 stars I Read the Whole Thing 29 Dec. 2012
By S. Brady - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I must admit that I am a "Dummies" supporter. Best books to learn something from scratch. I read the whole book and highlighted areas that were relavent and new to me. Found the book felt a bit disjointed. I think it was the insertion of touch screen information that contributed to confusion. While the book does cover many areas of interest and with its instuction I was able to get a feel for Windows 8 ( Another loser for Microsoft ). The illustrations are black & white and not very clear. Coverage is from basic windows operations ( things you learned years ago ) to touchscreen actions. Incidently I don't recommend trying to learn Windows 8 and how to use a touchpad at the same time ( very disconcerting ). Basicly this book took in to large an area; Basic windows, Windows 8 & Touchscreen. Recommend another choice.
