These books are wonderful for both the visual and the kinesthetic learners. They provide clear, readable visual screen shots which accurately show what the screen should look like if you are doing the exercise correctly.

These books cover operating systems, programs such as Microsoft Word, Excel, and other non-Microsoft programs. They also cover iPads, iPods, smartphones, and other technologies. They are excellent books for anyone who is just starting out with computers and needs simple easy to understand materials.

 

 

downloadThe Dummies Series

These books are intended for the beginning audience, but they sometimes use terms and concepts which the beginner may not know or understand.

These books do explain in a manner easier to understand the more technical O'Reilly computer books; however, in order to really get any use out of them , the reader must already know something about computers, how they work, and have a basic understanding of computer terms.
