    A Good Supplement I’m an engineer and I’ve been using OSX for close to a decade now. I wanted a good reference manual for my non-techie mom.[Good]As the title says, it’s a very visual book. Almost every step has a corresponding picture. This makes the book easier to follow and understand compared to the Dummies’s and Idiot’s book series.This book targets the currently released OSX Mavericks. It should still be mostly relevant when the newest version of OSX (Yosemite) arrives in the fall of 2014.This book not only applies to iMacs, but it also applies to MacBooks as well as Mac Minis and the Towers. In short it applies to pretty much anything that can run OSX Maverick.Very well organized: It starts with basics and works its way up to various tasks ranging in importance:Basics => Configuration => Surfing Internet => Office => Music / Photos / Movies => Advance Configuration => Really Basic TroubleshootingThe book’s layout…

    Teach Yourself VISUALLY iMac If this is your first computer or if you are changing from a Windows machine to a MAC, then this could be just the book for you. This is especially true if you learn best when you see someone do something first. That is what the Visual Series of books is all about, showing you what to do as well as giving you clear instructions. This particular book does a fine job of presenting all of the information you need to get up and running on your new iMac. Here is what I liked: 1.

Instead, it provides great pictures of the steps you need to take, what the results should look like with each step, and finally, what the end product should look like. 2. This book covers all of the essentials to get your computer up and running and includes many helpful features such as setting up a network, iCloud, a printer, backups, apps, e-mail, FaceTime, Web surfing, Photos, and more…

    Great Visual Help Book For the iMac I am not an expert when it comes to using my MAC however I have several years of knowledge in using a MAC and when I saw this visual instruction book I thought it would be a great reference book to add to my other MAC books. No matter how long I use the MAC there are always question that come on how to do something specific. And I have thus far been able to see visually how to handle many of those issues which makes the book well worthwhile at this point. I had rather look at a few pictures than try to read a lot of technical info and that is what I so often find when I have a MAC question or issue. As the book states you can look at a few pictures and skip the long-winded explanations.Caution—this book is not going to be for everyone. If you are an expert at using the MAC and its software, you probably will have little use for the pictures and suggestions found in this book. On the other hand if you are still learning then perhaps this would be a good addition to your…
