This is one of the best computer repair books I've found. I'm a novice and it makes everything very easy to understand. The author uses simple, detailed instructions to insure you are comfortable performing the repairs, upgrades, etc. I plan to rely on this and other of her books to keep me 'up and running' for a long time!

Being a novice, this book talked to me in language I could inderstand. I now have my computer running at it's optimum , having done things I never would have attempted on my own. Lots of pride knowing that I did this myself! ( the book takes you step by step.) Having taking B&N univerversity class using this book, it also seemed great with the more experienced users!

This book is clearly written and yet is able to pack a wealth of information in its' chapters. The only thing better than this book is to read it and take the Barnes and Noble online course with the author of this book herself.

This is a very thorough and easy to understand book. In a short time I have learned so much about maintaining Windows 98. I recommend it to anyone that is frustrated with some aspect of their computer's performance. This book's easy step-by-step instructions are an excellent resource to do your own computer improvements.

Wempen has taken a techie subject and written clearly enough for most non-techies to learn how to better use their computers and troubleshoot problems. This is an incredibly difficult thing to do.

In college, I remember a favorite saying of one of my favorite instructors, 'You don't have to remember the details of something. Just remember where to find the details'. 'Tune up Your PC in a Weekend', is a book with the details of not only how to keep the computer in operation but how to understand the workings and enhance the performance of the machine. It's the book that should be in the bookcase when the BSOD strikes at 2AM. Buy it!!

This book was non-stop reading! So many questions were answered about maintaining my PC computer. This book along with the course at Barnes and Noble University has really helped me to get my PC in peak running condition. Would recommend the book to anybody who has a PC!

I have just finished this book, along with taking the class thru Barnes & Noble University. This is one of the best computer books I have ever purchased. You do not need to be an expert to use this book or take the course. I really recommend this book to any one who owns a computer. Written in plain english that everyone can understand!!

This is a wonderful book and it has helped me get my computer running smoothly again. I just finished a course at B&N University and it helped me tremendously. Everyone should have this book as a learning guide and reference book.
