FREE  ONLINE  APPLE  MAC  COMPUTER  LESSONS  2016


The index below has three main learning levels - Beginner (1-3), Intermediate (4-6) and Advanced (7-9). As with every learning process; Learning the BASICS first can be boring and tedious at times but do end up making the other, slightly more difficult, lessons much easier to learn later. So don't learn The Internet lessons first if you have not read/learnt about navigating Windows for example.

    

Over the course of the BASIC lessons only (Folders & Files and Windows) you will see for yourself how easy the Apple MAC Operating System (OS X Mountain Lion / Mavericks) is to use, due to each category/section being explained step by step, picture by picture, in a non-technical/clear/unintimidating way.


After learning the basics you might then quit thinking the Advanced lessons are going to be too advanced for you, but that is where you would be making a big mistake. Why? Because the advanced lessons are purposely explained in the same "easy to learn" manner as the basic lessons, so installing a Printer for example is easier than you think! So don't think computers are "TOO DIFFICULT TO LEARN" and/or "MEANT FOR YOUNG PEOPLE ONLY" because they are not.
