This book is informative but the killer is there is NO ANSWER KEY to any of the questions in the book!!!!! RIP OFF!!!!! I called the publisher and they told me if I was not a teacher I could not get the answer key! There is a practice test that you do get with the book but I have not looked at it. I just think it's a rip off because I read the chapters and had no problems but when I take the tests at the end of each chapter, I can't look at the answer key. I would say it refreshes you with the material but in reading it you don't know if you can pass their questions. FIND ANOTHER BOOK! RIP OFF RIP OFF ALERT....Call the publisher up yourself and ask why there is no answer key 1-888-764-7001
This book is very informative and well structured. It is easy to pull and retain the knowledge gained from it. It has in book reviews and image guides for hands on examples. It also comes with a real MTA practice test, which you can redeem online. However as mentioned there are no answers given in the text book. Which can lead to some very stressful review writing. It does however give full access to the review answers and testing materials to teachers. This didn't help me any and anyone who was trying to avoid having to take the course will be left wanting. Overall it was a good book and most of the answers are written exactly as they are in the chapters so you can kind of cross check them. If you can find a textbook with answers included I would recommend going with that.
Look, I don't know who wrote this book, but I take alot of issues with it. My review here is similar to my response to another review, but I felt I needed to post my own.CONS:1) No Answer Key - Seriously, you might be able to find answers using Google, but they are not in this book, and Microsoft only gives them to teachers.2) Overpriced - This book is way too expensive for its content and quality. There are better books at half the price.3) Ambiguous questions and answers that are not always 100% referenced in the chapters, made an even larger problem by #1PROS:1) Decent amount of useful information, you could probably pass an MTA with this, but I wouldn't ever recommend this book to a beginner.I guess the Pro was also a Con, oh well. I seriously hope the Windows 8 version of this book is better.
I used this textbook for my college windows class and it was great, it explained everything well and it had step by step instructions for the different activities. This made it easy to learn the many different settings and features of windows.
Great book as far as the readings and exercises.To get the answers to the end-of-lesson exercisesyou must purchase the Instructors Book.
It's a good review for the test, not real in depth on any one topic.*Does not have answers for end of chapter questions, need to get them elsewhere.
To learn how MS wants you to do things this book will help you. WARNING. The test will some times tell you failed when you actually passed.
Good book liked the companion practice test...but it would have been nice to have the answer key with the chapter quizes
