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.
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.
Windows 7 For Dummies Book + DVD bundle
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.
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.
