Overview

Macs today come "fully loaded," but unlike your typical fully loaded automobile, Macs do not come with detailed instruction manuals. Instead, the user is often left to fend for him or herself as they try to sort through all that powerful and mysterious software. On the surface, these programs are relatively easy-to-use, but it is what lies beneath the surface that makes them most useful.

Through the use of visual aids and projects, you will be guided through each application's basic features before moving on to the hidden features and time-saving shortcuts.
