Very well written with a gentle humor. The book is written for all levels of computer knowledge. You can skip around and read subjects where you need help or have an interest. I chose to start studying at the beginning and even found the basic level of information interesting. Andy has a way of pointing out the secrets of Windows 7. He even taught me several points about Windows XP in the process.

The DVD is excellent and covers the basics of Windows 7. The book deals in the depth but the DVD gets you off and running and you can learn from there. Windows 7 is a good operating system but when you jump from XP to Win7 there are gaps that are not obvious. The DVD gets you up to speed quickly.

I think the DVD and book package are well worth the price. I have recommended it to several people already. They agree with me that it is a good purchase.

This is a very good book if you want to learn all of the tricks of the new Windows 7 operating system. As a plus it comes with a DVD that will step you through some of the basics. As an experienced computer user I would recommend this book to anyone who has recently upgraded from XP to WIN7. It will help you navigate all of the new features.

This book has been a real help to me getting started with Windows 7. I've moved everthing that I had on a computer with Vista to this new computer with 7 and what a blessing. I am truly thankful to never have to do Vista again even with all the work to set up new in 7. I could have updated on the old computer, I guess, but decided why not start new. This book and two others--"Windows 7 Step by Step" and "Windows 7 plain & simple"--have been a great help in making the transition.

Windows 7 is complex so the book seems that way also but is much easier if you just go to the section that pertains to the subject you need help with.

The video on DVD that comes with this book is also great. I watched the whole thing but that is not necessary. Again you can go to the part of the video that has the subject matter you need. The fact that you can see what is being done is very helpful although you may need to watch it a few times for it to sink in. I did.

I will keep it next to my computer and refer to it from time to time as the need arrises.

Andy Rathbone, the author, must really know his stuff. This is not his first book on the Windows operating system. He did a little beating of his own drum by telling me in his book and video that he has written all the previous Windows for Dummies books so far. Like I said, he knows his stuff.

Windows 7 for Dummies is a great book. Well written and is really fun to read. I'm reading it from cover to cover in hopes that some of it will sink in. Even if it doesn't, I can always refer to it when the time is right.

If you buy this book I believe it will be well worth the price.

Husband has read this book page by page - found it to be very informative and easy to understand. Uses it to review applications he wants to try out - can't be without it. This book has made using Windows7 easy to use now. Would definitely recommend buying this at this great price - excellent condition. The DVD is a plus.

Over the years, I've purchased a number of 'For Dummies Book' because these books usually leave out a lot of the 'extra geeky details' that do more to confuse than to explain.

If you just want to know how to use Win 7 quickly and easily, then I recommend Win 7 for Dummies. I do suggest learning one chapter at a time. It's not intended to be read through as a novel. Once you've worked through one chapter, it'll be very easy for you to find anything covered in that chapter for future reference if you don't remember the details.

This book is written for the person with very little computer experience. I just got a new computer with Windows 7 on it, so I was looking for essentially some sort of user manual that will tell me everything Windows 7 can do. However, most everything in this book is extremely basic that anyone with the most rudimentary computer knowledge will already know (ie: folders are used for organizing your information). Very little in here is actually specific to Windows 7, but more of a generalized overview of any Windows system, including XP and Vista.
If you have no knowledge of how computers work to the point that you're scared to touch one, yeah, this book might be right for you.

Such prompt service but I haven't had time to use the DVD yet. Book is very helpful, easy to find subjects I want info about, written in layman's English, not computer-eez.
