Like "Windows XP for Dummies", this "Windows XP Step by Step" was designed for beginners. It is a gentle guide which will make your understanding of Microsoft's latest Windows less energy-sapping. The chapters are easy to follow: they let you maintain the gear at your own pace. The emphasis of this book (and its accompanying CD-ROM) is on training. Trouble-shooting tips were outlined in an easy-to-find manner. The quick-reference sections give a bird's-eye view of the chapters. The only weakness is that this book is not detailed enough as to meet the needs of most advanced learners. For that purpose, a bigger, more detailed text may be required.

When I received the Windows XP Step by Step book I was surprised that the cover was as bright as the windows xp wallpaper that is in the windows xp software. What I like about the book is every section is color-coded making it easier for the windows xp user to find the answer to their questions. The book makes it easy to learn how to use windows xp without the computer langage that sometimes can confuse the novice. The exercises make learning windows xp fun. The book is great for everyone-Beginner/Novice.

If you already have good knowledge of Earlier versions of windows (as I do) you can easily figure out most of XP on your own.
I bought this book to quickly learn the new multimedia features of XP (i.e. how it handles music files and picture files).
I completed the whole tutorial and, though most of what it covered I could have figured out for myself, I found it to be useful. Going throught the book was very quick as I skipped over a lot of the stuff that is obvious or the same as in previous windows versions.
But in doing the tutorial I learned a lot of those cool details. (you know.......the ones that when you see someone do something cool and you wonder why, after using windows for a long time...you didn't know that you could do that.)
If you are an experienced computer user you don't need this book, but if you have a little extra cash and some time it probably wouldn't be wasted if you bought the book.
If you are a beginner with computers and you have windows xp this is a definite MUST GET.
For those of you who don't have Windows XP...Its really cool...consider getting it.

I found this book good, but a little simplistic. I would have liked a little more, especially in the area of menus. They are difficult to control in XP.
