I am very happy with my Windows 7 Administrator's Pocket Consultant. It helped me with installing and setting up my personal computer, and now it helps me manage and maintain my computer. It has helped me solve and fix a number security issues I have had with my operating system. The steps in the book is easy to understand and follow no matter what edition of Windows 7 I am working with. I am currently in college and majoring in Networking Technology, and this book has helped me in almost every course I have taken. When I'm at home it sits beside my computer and when I go to school its in my book bag it is my daily portable guide to Windows 7. William R. Stanek really set the standard with Windows 7 Administrator's Pocket Consultant, and plan to buy more of his book. Thank you William.
