Book Description

Dec 31 2003
"The best computer class I have ever taken!" and "I never knew that computers could be explained so well!" are frequent comments by Web Wise Senior students. Since 1999, Web Wise Seniors has successfully taught thousands of beginning computer users. Now, for the first time, the same teaching methods successful in Web Wise Seniors courses are found in this easy to understand book.

This book is not a reference for computers. It is a learning guide for people of any age who are unfamiliar with computers, but especially designed for seniors who want to be skilled computer users. It is like having a private instructor by your side as you walk through the basics of computer use with your book. This book is full of common questions, asked in real classes by beginners, with easy to follow answers that have already helped thousands.

Reading explanations and definitions will only get you so far. You need to actually use the computer to learn to use it, and this book will help you do just that. It will help you get started using the computer by walking you through basic skills step-by-step while answering your "whys" and "whats" along the way.

Web Wise Seniors teaches basic computer classes every day. WWS has seen what works, what doesn’t work, and what beginners want to know first hand.

TOPICS INCLUDE: turning the computer on, explanations of the Pieces and Parts, using the mouse, working with windows, saving, navigating through the computer, customizing and organizing the computer, installation, the recycle bin, definitions of terminology and much more!

2.0 out of 5 stars Basic pc book Dec 5 2011
By Storm - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Helpful, ...but not as simplistic as my "newbie" to computers senior parents needed. Still, if one has the most basic pc abilities already down pat, this book could be of some help.
