(OTSI), Joan guides the translation of technical information and requirements into useful, relevant, and measurable resources for people who are seeking certification of their computer skills or who simply want to get things done efficiently.

Joan is the author or coauthor of more than three dozen books about Windows and Office (for the Windows, Mac, and iPad platforms) and three generations of Microsoft Office Specialist certification study guides. Joan is a Microsoft Certified Professional, Microsoft Office Specialist Master (for Office 2013, Office 2010, and Office 2007), Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (for Windows and Windows Server), Microsoft Certified Technology Associate (for Windows), Microsoft Dynamics Specialist, and Microsoft Certified Trainer.

Joan currently lives in a small town in Texas with her simply divine daughter, Trinity, two slightly naughty dogs, a naturally superior cat, a vast assortment of fish, and the super-automatic espresso machine that runs the house.

Joyce Cox has 20+ years’ experience developing training materials on technical subjects for non-technical audiences, including dozens of books about Office and Windows.

STEP BY STEP WINDOWS 7 by Joan Preppernau and Joyce is a handy reference tool. I found it helpful in showing me how to install various programs, and how to operate Windows 7. I use the book as a resource tool; I'm holding on to it to use for future questions I may encounter about operating Windows 7. This text simplifies and explains the material clearly. It is organized and logical. I especially find the index thorough and helpful. All in all, I give this text an excellent rating, and would recommend it for classroom and student use. The text answered my questions.

This book is aimed primarily at beginners and is good in that respect. It can help anyone, including the more experienced, familiarize themselves with the new features of Win7, though it lacks in-depth detail advanced users would probably want.
