Mac OS X Snow Leopard All-in-One For Dummies (Free PDF)

File Size: 9.72 Mb

Although this book is an All-in-One, you can also read it in a linear fashion (straight through) — probably not in one session, mind you. (Then again, Diet Coke is cheap, so it is possible.) The material is divided into eight minibooks, each of which covers an entire area of Mac OS X knowledge. For example, you’ll find minibooks on networking, the Apple Digital Hub suite of applications known as iLife, Apple’s iWork office productivity suite, customizing your Desktop, and Internet-related applications.

Each self-contained chapter discusses a specific feature, application, connection, or cool thing about Mac OS X. Feel free to begin reading anywhere or skip chapters at will. For example, if you’re already using an Internet connection, you won’t need the chapter on adding an Internet connection. However, I recommend that you read this book from the front to the back, as you do any good mystery novel. (Watch out; oncoming spoiler: For those who want to know right now, Bill Gates did it.)
