Going to College? Donít Forget Your Missing Manuals
Sebastopol, CA--To the disbelief of many parents, college students do crack open books to learn more about their new computer gear.
And with more and more students who grew up with PCs heading off to college with new Mac laptops, a reference book about making the switch can help reduce back-to-school jitters.
O'Reilly offers witty, informative, and easy-to-use reference guides including the bestselling series--The Missing Manual, the book that should have been in the box. The series entertainingly enables readers to learn how to use their new laptops, digital cameras, and software.
Here are several books we think belong on every back-to-school list for college bound students, (and high schoolers, too).
- Switching to the Mac: The Missing Manual, Tiger Edition
- Mac OS X: The Missing Manual, Tiger Ed
- Google Hacks, Third Edition
- Photoshop Workflow Setups
