This book is thorough, but the explanations are so granular and the instructions are so explicit that it is ultimately doesn't teach anything, it just guides you to complete steps. The book does not facilitate exploration of the program or how it works. Instead of teaching what the tools are and how they can be used, it walks you through a bunch of tasks without explanation of meaning "click this, click that, press tab three times...next exercise".Time would be better spent just poking around the program and trying to accomplish various tasks.
Just what I needed!! My university only offers it in digital format so this was a budget friendly find!! Book appears to have all pages and was packaged well. There was no invoice or receipt in the box but I am ok with that.
A well-written, comprehensive manual that explains how to use desktop apps on Windows 8. Why three stars? The Kindle version isn't currently supported on Windows 8. Yes, a book about using Windows 8 that can't be used in Windows 8.
All I needed was a used book in a better condition to use and I got more than exactly what I needed so thumbs up!
