HASH(0xa75e2d80) out of 5 stars Great book! Found the book extremely useful. Nov. 5 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Robert O' Hara has truely done it with this book. The depth of information countered with the simplicity of explanations results in a book that is both a great learning tool for the novice as well as a useful reference work for the experienced user. There are a number of things within the book that lead one to a thorough understanding of the Windows CE operating systems and accompanying applications. Throughout the book there are shortcuts, tips, and explainations of the operating systems. Step-by-step instructions provide a useful guide for newcomers, while advanced topics are included for the more technically astute. Most enjoyable is including of the numerous easter-eggs within the Windows CE operating systems and applications. These are great to show friends and family when they ask, "So, just what does that $600 organizer do anyway?" I found this book useful in both learning the operating more thoroughly as well as developing an understanding of the systems shortcomings and features. I only hope he writes another one for Windows CE 2.0 that's as thorough and well written as this one.

HASH(0xa789a204) out of 5 stars Good book for users new to the Windows enviroment. June 7 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The eye-catching cover yields to make the forager for WinCE books. It starts with a realistic scenario, and goes step by step into the CE world. Every built-in program is covered in here, and even some third-party software/hardware. It is a good book for newbies, and for people who know a bit about Windows 95, 3.x, etc., (the Windows CE OS is pretty self-explanitory) there is a share of advanced things. The biggest downfall is that for the many people who use Windows CE for compatibility (and know the Windows 95 enviroment,) it is a bit too basic. And, for people having 3-4 years of Windows use, there is really nothing REALLY important in this book.

Overall: Good introduction of CE books to the shelf.

Format: Paperback
This book provides a good description of Windows CE 1.0, as well as a tantalizing look "under the hood".

I found nothing really useful in this book. I guess I already know enough about Windows!
