Can I Say Fantastic?
This book is an excellent way to learn how to configure and use Windows XP from basics such as desktop, files, multimedia (playing and creating), setting up an internet connection and outlook express to more advanced topics such as networking. Between the pictures and the simple verbal description you are never at a loss to figure out what to do. Also it's simplicity can be misleading. It tells you about the windows built-in firewall which you can turn on or off--I keep it on because it never causes me any problems--as well as the great built-in fax program which you can install without using the Windows CD. I have been using this fax program and it works very well, but I could not find it mentioned in the index of Microsoft's own "Windows XP Inside Out" book. I can strongly recommend this book. It is excellent for the average user. I have used other books in the "Master" series and they are all excellent.

Comprehensive and Easy to Use for Beginners
Here's an oddity. A computer book that's both comprehensive and easy to use. For anyone wanting to learn all about Windows XP without intimidation, look no further. The book is well organized, starting with elementary basics (such as general computer basics), then moving on to a wide range of topics:
Working with digital cameras
Setting up a home network
Creating audio CDs
Customizing your computer
And much more.
Each task is explained in easy-to-read text and, of course, with visuals. Very helpful, but written primarily for beginners, NOT for XP or computer veterans.
CD-ROM contains an evaluation version of Paint Shop Pro, FreeAmp music player,
AbyssAudio Collection, and an e-version of the book.

Master Visually Windows XP
I had purchased Teach Yourself Windows 98 Visually and thought it was great so I purchased Master Visually Windows XP. I was very disappointed in the presentation and content. In addition, the book weighs enough to cause a hernia. What on earth happened? Also I paid $40.00 which I feel is a gross overpayment. This will obviously fall on deaf ears but I thought I would get it off my chest
