About the Author
Diane McKeever has been a software trainer for over 25 years and has taught over 100,000 students in the United States and Europe. Every day she earns her title of "Certified Patient Person" by teaching some of the most complex material in a fun, easy to understand way. She currently teaches about different 14 software programs, focusing primarily on the Microsoft Office suite.
More recently has expanded her business and become certified as a Social Media Marketing Professional. She has lectured extensively on the subject and has helped hundreds of businesses set up and use the powers of advertising available through social media.
Diane brings her joyful spirit, nurtured by her years of experience as a hospital clown, into the classroom. Participants often say, "I learned so much and had so much fun!" When teaching multi session courses she is able to establish a rapport with her classes that allows for creative homework assignments, passing out stickers for good work and occasionally awarding balloon hat creations. All of this encouraged the students to relax and enjoy the learning experience. Since moving to Florida in 2013, Diane has joined the staff of the Adult and Community Enrich (ACE) program at Sarasota County Technical Institute (SCTI) where she has become a popular instructor, earning high satisfaction marks from her students.
Diane has had an active blog for years and contributes regularly to her popular Computer Tips blog where she has posted more than 130 tips. The top 100 of these tips were turned into a book, 100 Amazing Computer Tips (Swan Media, 2014), available in print and ebook formats from Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
Her extraordinary work has garnered her press in several newspapers and she was featured on the half hour TV program "Extraordinary Women Leading Extraordinary Lives".

McKeever is a strong proponent of my approach to using computers: learn the basics so that you know at least one way of doing everything you want to do. Then, over time and incrementally, learn alternatives, practice them, move on only when you have mastered that technique, or discarded it. Be very hesitant to upgrade to the next system; in fact I use the older versions of Word for example as long as possible -- in effect, when the program is no longer supported by the manufacturer.
The cost of learning is never factored into the fanciful blurbs the manufacturers delight in bedazzling us with. But that is a real cost, and slow and steady adaptation truly helps you remain productive.
The nine tip sections include:
-- 28 general computing,
-- 11 browsers related,
-- 4 Facebook,
-- 14 Microsoft Office,
-- 2 emailing,
-- 5 Microsoft Outlook,
-- 19 Microsoft Excel,
-- Word, and
-- 5 fun projects and programs.
The appendices have charts of keyboard shortcuts, Alt codes, and Apple characters with their shortcuts.
Pick and choose from the treasures on offer here, and improve your skills slowly.

This book is recommended to anyone be they beginner, intermediate, or even advanced. We can all learn something. Diane also has a blog which provides many useful tips.
If you're in the Sarasota, FL area, I'd highly recommend taking her classes at the Sarasota County Technical Institute. They are practically a university with their wide variety of course offerings.
