    A well rounded, easy to understand resource. Offers the beginner basic information about popular topics in computers today, including security, popular software, and social media. With lots of lists of places to get started on making tech and online choices, a definate ice breaker for those overwhelmed with today’s technology or just want to keep tabs on what’s out there.

    I remember how intimidating it was when I got my first computer. At the time, my husband regularly used a computer at work and thought that I should learn. Of course, I didn’t even know how to turn on the thing let alone make it do something worthwhile. Looking back, I wish I would have had a resource like Absolute Beginner’s Guide to Computer Basics.

At the time, my husband regularly used a computer at work and thought that I should learn. Of course, I didn’t even know how to turn on the thing let alone make it do something worthwhile. Looking back, I wish I would have had a resource like Absolute Beginner’s Guide to Computer Basics. The book starts right from the start. Right off, the book tells the reader that they aren’t likely to damage the computer by pressing the wrong button. It also explains all the components of a computer and then takes the reader step by step through what the computer can do. Since the book is based on Windows 7 technology, the new computer owner can simply unpack the parts and begin setting up. By the end of the book, the reader will pretty much be caught up on the basics. Absolute Beginner’s Guide to Computer Basics is good for those new to computing. It provides the basics and does so in an easy to understand way. However, additional resources may need to be consulted if troubleshooting information is required.

    When I took over teaching the Basic Computer course at Henrico County Adult Education (Richmond, VA area) in September 2010, this was the textbook. I used this book for the Fall semester, then decided to keep it as the text for this class. I've been using it ever since - when they upgrade to a version of Windows beyond 7, I will consider using a more recent edition of this book (my students have seemed to like it in the nearly five years I have used this book).

    This author can explain in everyday English. I learned quite a few things about computer basics.
