MacBook For Dummies Reviews
This is my go-to book for help with my new MacBook Air. New to Mac after many years on the PC, I was struggling with the changes. I watched the U Tube videos, which were very helpful but I needed print instructions! This book is easy to follow, clear and concise. Thanks to this help.I am moving along with MACBOOK for DUMMIES
I bought iPad for Dummies a couple of years ago and thoroughly enjoyed reading and using it. This book, although dated July 2014 actually has information in it that is out of date. Another complaint is that it is printed cheaply, so when I use my yellow highlighter it smudges the page and my highlighter gets ink on it as well from the print. The iPad for Dummies book had glossy pages, which were high quality and there was no problem with using a highlighter. Another problem is that this book is written for a number of different MacBook models so the reader must take in material that is not relevant for one's own model. I was sufficiently frustrated with this book that I went back to see if there are other manuals out there to learn how to use my new MacBook Pro, and I found Teach Yourself Visually MacBook Pro. So far this is everything that the MacBook Dummies book is not: the pages are glossy, there are lots of color diagrams and photos, and it is specific to the MacBook Pro, so there isn't lots of extraneous information to deal with. I am not a techy, so perhaps people who are more sophisticated would prefer the Dummies book. For someone like me, The Teach Yourself Visually MacBook Pro book is ideal, and purchasing this MacBook for Dummies book was a mistake.
As a longtime Microsoft Windows user (40+ years) I decided to switch to a Mac. Bought me a Macbook Pro notebook and this book. The book has been a welcome transition aid as I have it loaded on my Kindle and the Kindle app. Easy to reference and use. Written in the typical "for Dummies" format that I am used to from other editions on other subjects.
I had an earlier version of Macbook for Dummies, and am very glad I bought this new version, which tells about all then new cool features with the newest operating system, El Capitan. I don't have a Macbook Pro YET, but I bought this book and the earlier version several years ago specifically to familiarize myself with Apple laptops before buying one. This is very well written, and easy to understand. Mark L. Chambers is one of my favorite Dummies writers for Apple products. I recommend this new version of Macbook for Dummies.
The MacBook for Dummies is just the book I needed. I am new to the iMac and in my haste to get a "manual" (which did not come with the computer ),I ordered this book for Mac laptops for my Kindle. It serves the purpose. It explains the Apple computer in detail so that I can understand it and make it work for me. I was overwhelmed with my new iMac, but now I have settled down to enjoy it and I really do love the book for making it so easy. It truly is the only "dummy" book you will need.
I switched from a PC to a MAC and I had many questions on how to maneuver the operating system. I could go to the Apple Store and meet with a tech but I'd get home and I had even more questions! This book is so handy and it's so easy to find answers to my questions. If you're not used to a MAC, this book is an absolute necessity!!
Decent job by the author who has apparently written multiple Dummy books for the Mac. I bought the e-version for my Kindle - wished I had bought the hard copy to facilitate flipping back and forth between pages.
I've been a fan of Dummies books since Windows 98 and Microsoft Office. I recently decided to purchase my first Mac and with it the MacBook for Dummies. I've created a small library of their books and not one has disappointed me. This book is no exception. The Mac vs Windows is a bit of a challenge easily handled by the MacBook for Dummies. Excellent in ever way. 5 star for sure.
