The Complete Idiot's Guide to Computer Basics (2nd Edition)

Buy
The Complete Idiot's GuideA (R) to Computer Basics, Second Edition will build from the previous edition on teaching PC users the kind of computer capabilities that can enrich their lives and make their PC system one of their most beneficial tools in the home or office. Even more than The Complete Idiot's GuideA (R) to PCs, this a 'how to book' that takes an application- and task- specific approach to computers.

When you first get a PC, you want to do something with it. You didn't buy it to learn about it any more than you buy a car to learn about its engine. You want to write a letter, send an email message, check out some Web sites, make a greeting card, or personalize the Windows desktop. Whatever it is you want to do, you don't want to have to read a book describing what a Pentium processor is or how your AGP adapter produces the pretty image on the screen. You want something more tangible; you want to do something practical. The only trouble is that the darn computer won't cooperate. It's just not as easy as it looks. That's the purpose of The Complete Idiot's Guide to Computer Basics. This book identifies the 20-30 tasks that you as a PC novice want to perform and then it draws a map showing you how to achieve your goal. You'll follow simple steps to print a greeting card, reconcile a checkbook balance, decorate the Windows desktop, make the PC run faster, and more.
