HASH(0x9ad335a0) out of 5 stars Excellent for first time pc users. March 11 2007
By M. L. Hare - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is the second book in the Idiot series I have purchased (first one being the Idiot's Guide to Windows ME). This book takes the approach of the first time pc user. Very thorough and gives almost all the information one needs to become fully computer-literate. I have been using computers for 7 years now and I learned a few new things. Gives you all the information you need to use Vista with ease.

HASH(0x9ad335b8) out of 5 stars A timely resource for the author's target audience Feb. 17 2007
By Peter O'KELLY - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is a useful introduction to major Windows Vista features. It's likely to be most useful for people who don't have in-depth experience with Windows XP, e.g., people getting their first PCs and starting with Windows Vista.

HASH(0x9ae0b9cc) out of 5 stars Complete Idiot's Guides are a smart buy April 10 2009
By Tarra Sabin Simental - Published on
Format: Paperback
All the Complete Idiot's Guides are marvelous, and this one is no exception. A rank beginner who's never touched a PC could operate Vista with this book. For those of us who are much more computer literate, but still have trouble figuring out all the intricacies of the complex Vista operating system, just skim or skip the first few chapters and dig in a little further along. The author's wonderful dry humor helps you laugh at your frustrations, while his detailed and specific instuctions help you accomplish what you set out to do. I hated Vista OS at first. Now that I can see how much I can do with it, thanks to this guide, I love it!

HASH(0x9ad822ac) out of 5 stars Excellent manual June 19 2008
By Rev. M. S. Jorritsma - Published on
Format: Paperback
Having used Windows95 for about nine years,Windows Vista was rather overwhelming. That coupled with the scarcity of manuals today,THE COMPLETE IDIOTS GUIDE to Microsoft Windows Vista by Paul McFedries became my perfect guide. It is one of the best manuals I've ever used: clear,step by step explanation of whatever needs to be explained. I heartily recommend this excellent guide!
