The only Windows XP Home book readers need! Windows 95/98/Me users rejoice!

If you think there was a lot to learn when the world jumped from DOS to Windows 95, then you're really in for it if you make the leap from 9x/Me to XP unprepared. Let this proven bestseller be your guide. This edition covers all of the updates to Windows XP since it was released, including Service Packs 1 and 2, and Reloaded.

Format: Paperback
An excellent resource text, well written and well organised: it's comprehensive and has a good index, making it easy to use. It seems to meet the authors' stated goals of being accurate, concise, practical and interesting, no mean feats for a text dealing with a rather dry subject.

I dare say that perhaps even the most seasoned user of Windows XP should have this book on their reference shelf, but the book is not without its flaws

"Using Windows XP" continues the author's/publisher's tendency to copy large amounts of text from previous editions of the "Using" series (this book borrows from its Windows 2000 edition) with the new material/features of Windows XP. This book is an excellent introduction to Windows XP for people completely oblivious to Microsoft operating systems and Windows XP but also a useful reference to more intermediate users who may not understand new introductions like XP's new wizards and other features like built in CD-R software.

By this time, the book is largely obsolete - superseded by Windows 7 - but still useful a reference and I dare say historical document when the teeming masses were finally weaned off the DOS kernel.
