    Good Reference Book

    This is a good book for someone who used Windows XP for years and finally switched to Windows 7. The index makes finding answers easy. The information is presented in easy-to-understand language for the non-tech person.

    Informative

    Very informative! I liked the organization of the chapter headings as
    well as the index so that if I wanted to look up something spceific, it
    was easy to locate. Would recommend this for anyone who is looking to
    operate Windows 7.
