4.0 out of 5 stars Windows & Step by Step June 28 2011
By jqueu
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book makes the task of learning Windows 7 relatively easy. All commands are shown in multicolour illustrations with instructions. Tasks such as parental controls, user accounts are shown as illustrations accompanied by text. I teach a basic computer course for the local Literacy Council, after seeing Windows 7 Step by Step 4 people bought the book. It starts from scratch and works thorough the entire Operating System

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than the For Dummies May 29 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I just got a new computer with Windows 7 and this book was recommended by my computer tech. I have found it easier and better to follow than the For Dummies. One gets lost in all the reading in the For Dummies; this is much easier to follow. Also, more practical.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Book Dec 17 2012
Format:Paperback
In my opinion this book is confusing and lacks clear, concise 'how to' instructions. Disappointing. The accompanying CD is mostly a digital version of the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Basics, step by step Nov. 1 2009
By D. P. Willey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Windows 7 Step by step is what I bought for my sister. She's a novice PC user and wanted some help with using the newest Windows. Out of all the ones I read through at Borders this was the best for beginners and basics. If you are looking for a beginner book, probably a good choice but really will want to get a more advanced one to actually learn Windows 7. The more advanced one I like best is Windows 7: The Definitive Guide: The Essential Resource for Professionals and Power Users.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book, but maybe not for experienced Windows users Nov. 29 2009
By David Ramthun - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I don't know that I have ever really been a huge fan of any "step by step" books. This may be due to my technical experience and quickly getting bored with things I already know. In any case, I decided to look over this book as an option for my mother-in-law, who, shall we say, is slightly less than computer savvy. Ok, very far from computer savvy. She bought a new computer that had Win7 installed and to save my sanity from the phone calls I typically receive, I thought finding a book like this would be great.

The book itself is very readable and covers everything that is new as well as those that are updated from earlier versions of the Windows operating system. This is good because my mother-in-law came from a Windows XP machine and this books makes the transition easy enough for her. The practice files provided give a good level of work for the new Windows 7 user to get a feel for each of the features available in the operating system. The first section for new computer users is also a great refresher for current computer users to allow them to understand the terminology that will be used throughout the book.

Seriously, if my mother-in-law can go through this book and keep the phone calls to a very minimum, this book is hitting the target it was shooting for.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Comprehensive Starter Guide Nov. 8 2009
By Sigurdur Haraldsson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I really liked Windows 7: Step by Step. It covers all the basics without getting too technical and has lots of explanatory pictures, which is what beginners benefit from right away. It's easy to understand, the practises are good. I recommend this book for beginners, both of Windows 7 and computers in general.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential to every user of Win7 Nov. 15 2009
By Wayne the bookworm - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the best book I have ever read on how to get the most out of Windows. I have read books on how to use Windows 3.1, 95,98,XP and Vista and none even come close to the clarity and thoroughness of Windows 7 Step by Step. This book is a must read for every user of Windows 7.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great place to start with Windows 7 Jan. 14 2010
By L. F. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is a great place to start if you're new to Windows 7. It covers all the basics-- from how to start up the computer and log in to how to create a network-- without being technical. The text is set up in a series of exercises, and there are many diagrams and screenshots.

This is definitely a beginners-level book, but I mean "beginners" in the sense of those new to Windows 7. I'm very experienced with computers dating back to the Apple II days in the late 1970s, but my new new computer came with Windows 7. I found this book perfect. It gave me a quick start with practical, accurate directions, but it never talked down to me.

The CD that comes with the book contains the entire text in PDF format, so you can have the book on your desktop. It also contains sets of practice exercises that go with the chapters in the book. I found these very useful.

If you want a detailed reference book, Step by Step Windows 7 isn't a good choice for you. You'd probably be happier with Windows 7 Inside Out. However, if you want a practical guide to getting started quickly, this is the book. I recommend it very highly.
