Having just changed from a PC to a Mac, I have needed help and this book is set out really well and is very easy to follow. I had borrowed a copy from the public library but decided I needed my own copy. Very happy with this purchase!

The book is useful for sure but I think you can also google a lot of the the information too. So it jsut comes down to whether you have some extra cash laying around you don't mind spending on this kind of material.

I don't know what I'd do without Dummies books. Have bought several and they don;t disappoint.

This one doesn't have all the newest iMac info though. But it's a good basic start on how to use your new iMac.

As a long time PC owner wanting to make the transition to the Mac World, this book helped me tremendously. In just a short time, I was able to work my new MacBook Pro, like a Pro. I have to give a tremendous credit to this book and highly recommend it to first time users everywhere.

I carry this around the school as we are trained in Mac use. Though I thought I was a geek, this was simply a PC-driven belief. With 18 new Macs in my classroom I'm back at the novice stage. This dummy-Mac user is grateful for every chapter.
