Inexpensive easy-to-use 1-2-3 and DOS reference guides

Inexpensive easy-to-use 1-2-3 and DOS reference guides

By Hal Goldstein

Over the past year we have received lots of mail from HP Palmtop users complaining about the lack of 1-2-3 and DOS reference material in the HP 100/200LX manuals. Recently we had the opportunity to purchase a large number of Lotus 1-2-3 2.4 and DOS 5.0 MICROREF Quick Reference Guides. I found these guides complete and exceptionally easy to use and suitable for the entire range of users from novice to pro. They are obviously well thought out and designed by educational professionals.

These guides feature

  • Comprehensive coverage of commands
  • Step-by-step outlines of procedures
  • Numerous examples and illustrations
  • Spiral bound pages lie flat, turn easily
  • Graphic tabs for fast access to sections
  • Convenient pocket size that can travel with you
  • Cross referenced index locates subjects fast
  • Glossary of terms with command summary
John Dvorak of PC Magazine stated: "Far superior to any other guide, cheat sheet or original documentation ... an excellent guide for all users ... highly recommended."

I gave the guides to our circulation director, Sharon Dilmore, to see what she thought.

She said: "Three years ago when I joined the staff at Thaddeus Computing, Inc., I was the ultimate DOS dummy. Lotus? Forget it! Sure, there were the manuals, classes, the Quick Start guides, but who has time? There's work to be done.

"Yesterday I found my salvation. The big guy, Hal Goldstein, came to me and said, `Sharon, would you review these Microref quick reference guides for PC/MS-DOS and Lotus 1-2-3 and see what you think? What do I think? Wow, even I can follow this. Ever try to look something up in the index of a manual? Not to worry! The graphics tabs in Microref provide such easy access to information that it almost makes the index unnecessary and the step-by-step guides within make all things possible for this DOS dummy.

"Sorry Hal, you can't have them back. Possession is nine-tenths of the law. Thanks."
