Sam's Teach Yourself Mac OS 8.5 in 24 Hours Paperback – October 1, 1998
There is a newer edition of this item:
Mac OS 8.5 is becoming a standard in the Macintosh community, and Teach Yourself Mac OS 8.5 in 24 Hours will help you get up to speed quickly.
Authors Lewis and Lee begin with the best procedures for installing the software and teach you everything you need to know to use Mac OS 8.5. In the section on managing files with Finder 8, for example, they not only tell you what a file is, but how to open, close, move, delete, and make aliases for your files. From there, the authors move on to more advanced (and interesting) topics, such as LANs. Macs always have excelled at typography, so there's plenty of information on fonts and layout concepts, plus the book addresses audio and video. There is solid coverage of mobile computing with Mac OS, so PowerBook people take heed.
As Mac OS 8.5 has lots of Internet features, this guide pays considerable attention to the online world. The authors help you use Internet Setup Assistant, and then detail how to get the most out of the Netscape Navigator Web browser, the Netscape Communicator electronic mail application, and Sherlock--the new Internet search tool that's built into this version of the system. The guide closes with a little bit of information about publishing your own Web pages. --David Wall
