I was going to order the "Missing Manual" by David Pogue, but I am so glad that it is late in being published. Bob LeVitus OS X El Capitan for Dummies is a wonderful book. His humorous style and his ability to explain technical data for us regular folks is excellent. I almost think I would read the book even if I didn't need it for the information--it is so much fun to read.I have always bought every Missing Manual for every new OS X edition. From now on, I will definitely look for Bob LeVitus' books first.And most importantly, the book was out in a timely manner when I really needed it.
I think of myself as more knowledgeable about the mac than most but i learned a LOT about the OS from this book. Bob needs to do some research on Yosemite the national park but aside from that quibble he's delivered a really informative guide that I think everyone would benefit from. This is particularly useful for a windows user that is transitioning to the mac.
I needed a complete review of the Mac operating system as well as a review of the new features. This supplied both without being as tedious as a really detailed treatment woiuld have been. Hallelujah
I am glad I purchased this book. It is easy to read, and will make a good reference resource. The pictures and illustrations definitely could be clearer which is the only fault I have. The book is not technical and is limited to the number of pages, but the author states this is as directed by the book company. I bought the OS X El Capitan -The missing manual at the same time. This second book is slightly more technical and spends more time with explanations which positively helps with the Dummies book. I strongly recommend the purchase of both books as learning tools and as reference books which I am sure you will use. With both books and speaking with Apple support learning the operation of an iMac has been easy.
I'm new to OS and bought an Imac. Taking my time learning a new ways to use the Mac . This book is easy to follow and walks you though eachstep. Great for beginners like me. I'm 67 and if I can learn using this book anyone can. Bob LeVitus has a great sense of humor an makes it fun to learn from him.
What might have been a very helpful book is spoiled by the fact that the screenshots in the Figures are so small and blurry as to be of almost no value. And there are lots of screenshots meant to illustrate and support the text.
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.
Very good book for Apple beginners, also if you want to know more about El Capitan secrets or if you need to prepare for ACSP 10.11 certificate from Apple I will suggest iLearn: Advance ACSP for mac and iOS device. The book is good for beginners, if you want to go more in depth or start learning for Apple Certificate Professional I can recommend iLearn: ACSP application it's very good.
