  • Love This Book

    By Rojonana
    It is simple and easy to understand and I learned a lot. Computers are getting more and more technical each year and I have tried to keep up. This book really helped me to understand, for instance how to put a new printer in and sent me to the info I needed to get help with that. I really recommend this book and for the price, its great! Thank you.
