Quite simply written and easy to understand. However, some of the notes weren't entirely accurate to my edition of 8.1 such as the password log on which indicated that one could check the letters/characters entered - mine didn't allow that.

Takes the guessing out of the task of learningWindows 8.1. Easy to follow directions andvisually helpful. I personally prefer to havethe illustrations a bit larger, but their currentsize doesn't hinder your learning experience.Strongly recommend the "Simplified" seriesof books.

this is a great book for owners of new computers. i just had to purchase a new computer with windows 8.1, and this book help to learn the little tricks shortcuts to using windows 8.1. highly recommend it.

Have used these books to help understand a new system. Easy and simple to guide you though problems you encounter.

I love the "Simplified" series; very detailed instructions and in color, so what you see in the book is what you get on the screen. If you're new to Windows 8 and/or Windows 8.1, this is THE book. Definitely! (There's one for Win 8).

I have used books by this author before, for Win XP and Win7, and they have been excellant because of their illustrations.

I love computer software books for visual learners. All "How To Do XXX" is on a two page spread. Just open the book to the task to accomplish and follow the 1,2,3 numbers.The numbered steps are printed next to the spot on the screen that you have to click/do stuff.

Colorful and large graphics are very clear. Unfortunately there's not much depth in the subject coverage. Only way this book will help is if you are really a computer newbie!
