I was in Barnes & Noble one day. I walked down the computer row. I never go into this row. I hate coumputers and they hate me back. I saw quite a few Dummies book for QuickBook. I had to place an order for QuickBooks 2008. It came within a week. I have been doing a much better job with the help a the Dummies Book. I'm getting reports done that I couldn't even find last year. Before each chart or invoice I need to fill out. I just read the section and I'm on my way. I havn't had to scream, cry, pull my hair or tell myself how stupit I am. I'm happy. My husband is happy. Guess what? I am making progress all because of a Dummies Book. I havn't finished yet(I hope this year I don't have to pay someone to fix my mess). I don't think I'll have any problems though. I have my Dummies Book right by my side and all the answers are inside.
really has the same amount of information as if just going to quickbook help on the program.
