This book was useless to me--I sent it back March 25 2013
By Esprit64 - Published on
Format: Paperback
I'm an experienced computer user and can deal with most software quirks on the front end. But, when it comes to fixing "the system," I start zoning out. Hence, I bought this book to fix my PC with its promise of helping the challenged because the book stated that it covered, in part, the Windows XP product. My computer's plumbing was getting so constipated, it slowed, it stopped, it did things without my approval--in effect, it was a mess.

This book reminds me of a bread crumb trail that forks in too many spots leaving an inexperienced "computer fixer" clueless which way to go. Like a bread crumb trail, this book, for beginners, has gaps in the instructions that are truly annoying. Frankly, I don't believe that this author is aware enough to effectively write PC books for "dummies." Such writing requires a certain talent that most computer tech writers don't have--meaning--you have to write for a reader who doesn't understand what you're writing about and needs the author to lead the way. It's like an author writing "Everything you need to know about fixing cars." You buy the book, instructions are within, you're ready to learn, but, the author forgets to write, "This is a spark plug, here's where you find it," etc. Without such info, the inexperienced reader is quickly lost and must now guess what to do.

What I found particularly annoying was that this author would suggest a great solution--then, tell you, that the solution isn't found in XP. When I read such sections, I'd find myself slamming the book down in disgust. Why didn't he just tell me it wasn't for XP before I started reading? Every time I thought I'd find help, the information provided was for VISTA or other products. Then, the author says to use "X," BUT HE DOESN'T TELL YOU WHERE TO FIND IT--causing you to stop your reading, find the term in the index, turn to a different page, read that section--and, come back to the previous section to again try to figure out what to do. Or, he'll give you a vague reference to where you'll find the information you need in another chapter, no page number, causing you to search, flip pages--who needs this kind of "help"? The author really needed to present his information better.

Perhaps more experienced computer users will find this book useful and easy enough to use. If so, I wish I had your talents. As for me, I gave up trying to use this book. I went online, found a PC clean-up product and clicked. For $30, I saved myself $70+ had I taken my PC to a pro. I'd still rather learn how to fix my PC myself, but, I cannot find an author yet to help me do that.

Great deal Oct. 21 2012
By Ron - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I brought 15 of these for my career and tech class that I teach in computer repair. These high school students found the language very easy to read. The layout of the book makes it easy to move among different chapters out of order and still understand the concepts and skills taught. I haven't found such a good book and valued deal anywhere else on the internet.

By Clifford Brodsky - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An excellent guide for those interested in both maintaining and / or troubleshooting apparent problems with their PC. It is an easy read, extensive in its content, and provides detailed and understandable steps to enable one to solve asoftware / hardware problems. Personally, I highly recommend it as well worth the cost.

Can't say this good or bad, didn't have the info I needed, the index makes you think what you are looking for is in this book but it's not.
