    outstanding

    After 2 hours of tring to figure out the answer to one of the questions on a test that I was studing for . A friend had this book and amazingly there was my answer. Thanks so much to the author for helping me to come out of the dark ages and become computer literate, or some what a little more computer literate and help me pass that test. He's a life saver, after being out of school for 30 years. Thank So Much!!! Miss Lisa Kerrigan Philadelphia,Pa
