Editorial Reviews


'This book is the perfect manual for anyone who would like to learn how to operate their computer from scratch.

It is possible for a first-timer to pick up this book, learn how to turn on the computer, follow the instructions and with practice, progress to becoming a proficient user. All the directions are clearly illustrated with diagrams that break up the small, concise areas of text. When a new skill is being taught, it is accompanied by step-by-step instructions. Helpful notes and tips are highlighted in separate text boxes.

At just £9, Basic Computer Shills Made Simple is an essential, easy-to-follow guide for those cautiously mastering their computer.'
Amy Belchetz - Computeractive, May 2002

'The large jargon-free text & annotated pictures makes the web section palatable enough for even the most technologically stunted of brains.'
Practical Internet -April 2001

While computers have not changed that much since XP was king, any new features of Windows systems since then are not included in this book. I was going to use it to teach my older students how to use their new computers, but I think this is just going to confuse them. I will buy an updated product if it comes out.
