Whats a good WinXP book for beginner/intermediate?

  AnthonyB 23:33 11 Mar 2005


My brother has just got a pc off me, and it is "windows xp home". I want to know what's the best book(s) around that tell you most. I've seen some "dummies" books from PC world and "easy Windows XP" etc, any of these good?

the best way is just to click and experiment around and learn by experience

you will not break it unless you kick it

The Dummies series are in fact very good and a worthwhile investment. TomJerry is right about experimentation being a key to learning, but there is nothing like formal instruction and a reference book to help the process along.

The How to Do Everything with Windows XP (second edition), written by Curt Simmons, from Osborne at £16.99 is an excellent publication.

Your local library will probably have a copy - that's where I got mine and am able to renew it once a month; the service has enough copies to go round and therefore anyone ordering the book is quickly accommodated.

The How to Do Everything series is well written on a variety of computer related subjects.
