Okay everybody is correct. Any place or method of learning is great. I use books, videos, and of course right here on this form. What I do like about books is that when I make a change as suggested in a book, I can make a note in the margin and go back to it if needed.

Exactly.

Books are great.

Can be carried around easily - glanced at in odd momets on the train , waiting for a train ( a popular British pastime - miilions of man hours spent doing it ), etc.

These kindle type things have their place - but real books are always best.

I agree with using ALL sources to learn something, and I am also a die hard "how-to" manual user. Here are some suggestions: For me, the BEST source is always the manufacturer's own manual, so my first choice is to obtain any information about Windows 7 from Microsoft itself.

1. Windows 7 Secrets by Paul Thurrott - Windows 7 Secrets - Paul Thurrott – Amazon.com
2. Within Windows | John Mueller's Professional Windows 7 Development
3. Windows 7: The Missing Manual - David Pogue – Amazon.com
4. Windows® 7 Inside Out by Ed Bott

Plus, an on-line source of help from Microsoft - “Windows 7 Product Guide” – Download here

As many have already said, the tutorials on this site contain a vast wealth of how-to by many experienced users. In addition, you can always post here if you need to query any items specific to the tutorials, or indeed anything related to Seven.

Yes, of course there's plenty of available information here, and on other sources on-line. But sometimes you just want to look up something in a BOOK, perhaps to add your own notes to the information or highlight important text, etc. -- all things that are much harder to do when you've downloaded a file that may or may not be editable.

And sometimes you want to read this information when you're not in front of any computer --- so you need a hard-copy of the information, for example, in a BOOK.
