Just the Computer Essentials: A Plain-English, No-Nonsense Guide to Buying and Maintaining a PC Running the Windows Vista Operating System for Your Home or Home Office Reviews
I bought this book because I had just upgraded my computer to one with Windows Vista and wanted to learn the ins and outs quickly. It's been such a great tool in learning all of the new things I can now do!
I've been using Windows XP for years now and just got a new computer with Windows Vista Home Premium on it. There's definitely a big difference between those two versions of Windows! I've become very good at using XP, but wanted to make sure that I got Windows setup right and wasn't missing anything. I looked at a couple Vista books and I'm happy that this was the book I chose. It's very straight-forward and to the point and leaves out a lot of the over-technical garbage that most home users wouldn't even care about. The author does, however, hit on everything I needed to get my computer running right. He discusses the specifics of the security software to run (like comparing different vendors) and he talks about some of the options for configuring backups (including some of the newer online backup services... this was excellent!).
My home computer started having problems and I wasn't sure what to do? A friend told me about "Just the Computer Essentials".
I got this book to help me get a better understanding of what I needed to know when getting a new computer. I was actually very impressed. I quickly learned what I need to know and got a new computer that I am very happy with. I don't feel like I got ripped off because I knew just what to look for. I have already started using other parts of the book as well. I was easily able to transfer all my settings from my old computer to my new one just following along with his instructions. James White was very good at making the book easy to follow and put a ton of pictures in it showing you exactly how to do whatever it is you need to do. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!
This book is a life saver...
I found out about this book after a friend referred me to it. I'm not the most technical, but was able to understand everything he discussed. He took the time to explain everything in a way that made complete sense. My computer is getting pretty old, and I'm just about ready to get a new one. I'm sure I'll have this book right at my side when I get it and to help me move everything to the new computer!
This is a great book for anyone who needs help understanding the ins and outs of computers. I'm not a computer expert and was worried that this would be just another book full of mumbo-jumbo. But, to the contrary, this is a well-written, easy-to-read, resource guide that will help you navigate your computer and the new Vista software. You won't be disappointed!
"Just the Computer Essentials" is an excellent choice for the computer "savy" or the "not so savy" PC user like me. I found it easy to follow, even through complicated topics. Just recently purchased a Notebook with
