Reviewed by Roy T. James for Readers' Favorite Build your Computer Skills by Luke Mathius Harlow is a book full of useful information about using a PC. This book has an easy to understand step by step approach, suitable both for a beginner and an experienced user. It covers almost all the jobs one may encounter; like Navigating Windows, Manipulating Folders or Documents, USB Devices, Maintenance jobs like Disk De-fragmentation, Computer Safety, Viruses, Computer Hardware, A Glimpse inside the Machine, use of Email, Gmail, Google Search Features, Online Media, Streaming or Google Earth. An Introduction to Binary and other Number Systems used in computers is also provided. A set of test questions for each chapter along with a good index at the end enhance the book’s learning value. Build your Computer Skills by Luke Mathius Harlow covers almost all the questions an average user might confront while using a PC and provides clear and concise instructions. However a few more situations like Use of Safe Mode, Updating Drivers, Enabling Flash or Changing Display Resolution would have been of great help to a beginner. In addition, certain basic instructions on Internet Commerce, Social Media etc could have enabled readers in acquiring these popular skills which are more or less becoming essential in this arena. This book is, however, notable for its academic approach, clear explanations, easy to remember procedures, and review questions. I think this book should be a welcome assistant for every PC user, more so in the initial days of use.
