5.0 out of 5 stars "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Microsoft Windows 7", book April 15 2010
By Ferdinand Armbrust - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having recently purchased a new computer with Windows Seven installed, I needed to bring myself up to speed using this operating system. It is vastly different from WIndows XP Pro, with which I was fairly proficient. This is the best way to do so, short of a class, that I know of. You can either go through the whole book and learn a little at a time, or cut directly to those items you need to know as soon as possible. Like other Operating System books Mr. McFedries has written, it cuts right to what you need to know and skips the hype and hoopla so common to other books of the genre. If I could only have ONE book about this operating system, I would take this one. Far and away, it is the best I have come across, and I recommend it without reservation.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Complete Idiot's Guide to Windows 7 Sept. 12 2012
By Charles E Jolly - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The series of "Complete Idiot's Guide"books are written on a beginner's level, which. in most cases makes sense. The book was helpful, but I feel that in many cases the author oversimplifies descriptions and in some instances fails to use enough pictured steps to bring across the "evolution" of the overall "Windows"platform. I feel that overall, the author does an above average of explaining Microsoft's Windows 7.

I was glad to find out some hidden secrets in Windows that I had not known about. If you want to be able to use your computer to do more things, then this is the book for you.

After a computer failure, I had to bite the bullet and update to Windows 7 from Windows XP. Quite a new learning curve and this book certainly helped make it easier.

i think this manual is excellant for a novice. none of the so called help books get into the nitty gritty because they assume every one is past just learning. other than that buy it.
