There is a huge amount of free information on Windows 8.1 available on the Internet, but this book is very useful for looking up things you aren't sure about. It's like the book saves you from having to take notes on what you read about 8.1 on the Internet.

The book sticks to the basics, but that is good for me because this is my first experience with Windows 8.1. Without the book, I'd be totally frustrated. I bought the book and the book and DVD set for my neighbor. I should have bought two book and DVD sets because the DVD has some good tips too. If you are considering the book, buy the set. Less than $2.00 extra, I think.

I liked Widows 7 so much more than Windows. 8. The book helps some of the more difficult problems.

I have never used a Dummies book. It breaks how to down to simple terms but finding what you want I find difficult.
