The Ultimate Quick Guide to Mac OS X

Mac OS X Snow Leopard Pocket Guide is as advertised a great guide that is conveniently small to Snow Leopard and its new features. It opens with a quick guide to what is new in Snow Leopard including a new feature in Preview to import images through a scanner. Combining that with improved sharing and we now can, I hope, use our scanner with both of our iMac and our MacBook.

Chapter 2 is provides more information than unsophisticated users need about installing Snow Leopard and migrating data to it.

Chapter 3 is a quick guide to Snow Leopard itself beginning with the Menu bar. Services under the Apple Menu has been redone in Snow Leopard. When you have a new application to drag to the Applications file, just drag it to Applications in the Side Bar. Click and hold on any open application in the Dock to display all the open windows for that application. There is a lot of information that is new in this little book as well as reminders of features I forget to use such as command-tab.

OReillyBanner120x240Chapter 4 is a quick guide to troubleshooting the more common problems. Chapter 5 covers what is new and what you want to know about the System Preferences including Sharing. Chapter 6 includes some information about each of the many applications and utilities that come with Snow Leopard. Chapter 7 is about MobileMe which is useful only if you have MobileMe.

Chapter 8 is primarily about passwords which I believe is all most people really need to know about Security on a Mac except for using some common sense. The final chapter 9 includes the keyboard commands and how to access the special characters - very useful information in a easy to use format.

Mac OS X Snow Leopard Pocket Guide provides a look at what is new in Snow Leopard and a concise reference for information when you need it. A lot of book in a compact package for a small price.
