3.0 out of 5 stars Simple Is As Simple Does June 23 2011
By Evan Fleishman - Published on
If you're like me, you learn more effectively visually. I want a picture of something before I try to duplicate the steps. PC's Simplified is just what it says, no more no less. The screen shots in this book gives me confidence when I try to use my computer. Yes, it's a little basic, and sometimes it feels your back in first grade with "See Spot Run." But, to overcome everyone's fear of computers, you need to start from scratch sometimes. There are lots of computer books on the market, I rank this one as one of the better books. After finishing this book, you're ready to go on to more advanced subjects.
