I appreciate how easy it was to find exactly what I was looking for in Computer Basics. The chapters are easy to get through, and the Index provides quick access to just the information I need. I also like that the graphics presented in the book look exactly like they do on screen, and that the call-outs to those graphics are clear and concise.
From setting up email on your PC and finding lost and misplaced items, to the basics associated with using spreadsheet, word processing, and presentation programs like MS Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, this book really does have it all, and it really is super easy to read and understand!
I consider myself to be reasonably computer savvy, but in thumbing through this book, I found several sections containing tips and tricks I didn't know. Chapter 31 was particularly useful; tuneup suggestions that made our old PC run much faster and with greater stability. Who knows - we might get another couple of years out of it. Thanks Joe!
