Reviews - What do customers think about Internet and E-mail for Seniors with Windows XP: For Senior Citizens Who Want to Start Using the Internet (Computer Books for Seniors series)?
Basic skills training Oct 17, 2007
This is a good self-paced training manual, although akward to handle. The step-by-step procedures are fine for XP and Vista, and easy to understand. Just the Internet...Just the facts...simple (few right clicks offered.) I suggest teaching the E-Mail chapters BEFORE the SEARCH chapters, for that is what the students want. Poor quality print and paper makes the screen shots a little hard to read, but the procedure is good.

Says my mother in law, who has tried classes and a few other books. This was her favorite.

Excellent text with screenshots easy to follow. Not a deep coverage, but certainly gets seniors going. We use it as a recommended text for our seniors courses.
