ISBN10: 1576760804

Summary: Features
  • The best of both worlds: reference and self-study.
  • Short tutorials follow most sections. Students can "read" or "do"... or both.
  • Not for monkeys! Readers of Venit will be able to solve new problems, not just those presented in the book.
  • Each chapter concludes with a Chapter Summary, Review Exercises, Lab Exercises, and If You Want to Learn More . . . section.
  • If You Want to Learn More . . . -- extra troubleshooting or info for advanced students.
  • Once you read a Windows book by Stewart Venit, you won't look at other Windows texts the same way.
  • NEW Content of Windows XP Editions
  • Stewart Venit's new Windows XP Textbooks continue to give you the best of both worlds.
  • Solid Content
  • BOTH of these XP revisions brings you an additional new chapter. When Things Go Wrong: Troubleshooting including topics such as the Boot Process and Startup Option; Computer Viruses; System Restore; The Windows Registry; and additional sources of help.
In addition, extensive new material now appears on:
  • Organizing Your Data Files
  • File Type Associations
  • Property Sheets for Files, Folders, and Shortcuts
  • Windows XP System Files
  • Backup and Archiving Techniques
  • Tips on Hard Drive management.
  • Sound Pedagogy
  • Review Exercises offer a comprehensive recap of the chapter.
  • A "Tutorial" at the end of each section
  • A set of "Lab Exercises" at the end of each chapter gives you a chance to show students that Windows is not a spectator sport!
  • "If You Want to Learn More..." at the end of every chapter extends and deepens the content matter of that chapter.
Windows Classic style screen shots are included (at the same time as the XP style screen shots) only when their content differs from the XP counterpart (for example, for the Start menu) or when it might confuse someone using the Classic setting to see only the XP version (such as when discussing the Close, Minimize, Maximize buttons).

There remain "tutorial" books which do a better job of monkey-see, monkey-do than Venit.

There remain "reference" books, which do a more thorough job of explaining the esoteric minutiae of Windows than Venit.

But NO author combines the best of both worlds better than Venit.
