This is my go-to book for help with my new MacBook Air. New to Mac after many years on the PC, I was struggling with the changes. I watched the U Tube videos, which were very helpful but I needed print instructions! This book is easy to follow, clear and concise. Thanks to this help.I am moving along with MACBOOK for DUMMIES

I had an earlier version of Macbook for Dummies, and am very glad I bought this new version, which tells about all then new cool features with the newest operating system, El Capitan. I don't have a Macbook Pro YET, but I bought this book and the earlier version several years ago specifically to familiarize myself with Apple laptops before buying one. This is very well written, and easy to understand. Mark L. Chambers is one of my favorite Dummies writers for Apple products. I recommend this new version of Macbook for Dummies.

Great book to have! Just bought MacBook Pro and although it has a manual embedded, I found this book made it easier to find what I was looking for and use that information while using the Mac at the same time!!!

I bought two books, "Mac Book For Dummies, Chambers" and "OS X El Capitan For Dummies, Levites". The Chambers book is on cheap paper with no color. The LeVites book is in color and on premium paper. The LeVites book is the better of the two. I recommend that you buy both books and use them for reference. I found the best way to learn MacBook is on video on youtube and using the books as backup and reference.

Decent job by the author who has apparently written multiple Dummy books for the Mac. I bought the e-version for my Kindle - wished I had bought the hard copy to facilitate flipping back and forth between pages.

As a longtime Microsoft Windows user (40+ years) I decided to switch to a Mac. Bought me a Macbook Pro notebook and this book. The book has been a welcome transition aid as I have it loaded on my Kindle and the Kindle app. Easy to reference and use. Written in the typical "for Dummies" format that I am used to from other editions on other subjects.

Very easy to use and read; great for beginners.

I've been a fan of Dummies books since Windows 98 and Microsoft Office. I recently decided to purchase my first Mac and with it the MacBook for Dummies. I've created a small library of their books and not one has disappointed me. This book is no exception. The Mac vs Windows is a bit of a challenge easily handled by the MacBook for Dummies. Excellent in ever way. 5 star for sure.
