This book was fine when I needed it. I found many things to help me in my job and that's always a good thing.

I consider the Windows for Dummies books to be a necessity. When I purchased my old DOS machine, I used DOS for Dummies to help me when I ran into a problem and naturally, when I moved up to Windows 95, I put that book at my side. It was one of the first things I purchased when I moved on to Windows 98 and this book might be the best of all. It answers a lot of questions quickly and one learns new methods with the book. Highly recommended.

For people still using Windows 98 (which in the current worm- infested environment seems a distinct advantage) this book is about the best you can do. Explains basic stuff, has good illustrations, and if the book doesn't EXACTLY answer your question, with some searching you can usually figure it out. The big questions remain 1) why are these products so complicated and 2) why isn't Microsoft publishing the best guide? It's really too bad that the BEST sources of software tips are the Q&A columns in newspapers.

I purchased this for the lady of the house, an admitted newbie, raw recruit clueless computer user. I set up a computer for her in the living room, put my old dusty copy of Win98SE in it, told her to consult the book and not me should she have a question, and turned her loose. The book has done a admirable job answering her questions. A couple of months after buying it, I thumbed through it, and it did the same for me. This dummy thinks it's great.

Got my first computer (really) two weeks before Christmas. It has Windows 98 as the operating system. With the computer I received two books to help get me started. Win 98 for Dummies and The User Friendly Guide To Internet & Computer Terms. Both are great. Win 98 for Dummies takes you step by step thru the process of getting acquainted with a computer. The User Friendly Guide has a great dictionary along with tons of tips and articles about computers and the Internet. There's so much to know! If you need a great reference book, spend the money and get both of these.

Last year I switched from Mac OS to Windows 98, and after reading the paltry scraps of instructional material that came with my expensive new system, I hurriedly bought a few books to supplement all that I didn't know. This homely book turned out to be the most useful one. It is full of good information, patiently and compassionately conveyed. The entire "Dummies" series is burdened with chaotic graphics (little dartboards, hand icons with strings tied around a finger, checkmarks, a little man) and a schoolbus look for the books' covers. If you like a book to look good on the shelf (always a nice plus) you will have to make a cover for this one. Highly recommended, though, for the neophyte Windows user.

In reading this book, I was frustrated by too much unnecessary language. Having just bought my computer, and a total novice, I was anxious to learn every aspect of Windows 98. I was not impressed by the author's humor and feel it was a rediculous waste of paper. I didn't want 'fluff', I wanted 'meat'! It also didn't provide the 'in depth' information I was looking for. This book was far from meeting my needs. If you are serious about learning ALL of 'Windows 98' quickly, look elsewhere.
