How can I learn how to use a Mac?

Khadija Rahaoui March 27, 2010

My question is simple as it appears, but not to me! I am a teacher. I am new and have no background in technology. Very recently, I bought a MacBook Pro to get started. However, I find myself not able to learn technology and how to use a Mac. Please I would be very grateful if anyone has a good way to follow. THANK YOU ALL.

    You can order: Switching to the Mac: The Missing Manual, Snow Leopard Edition by David Pogue from Amazon for $19.95. This is an excellent source.

    Tips for getting started your command key is the key for shortcuts, for example command command q quits an application. Google mac shortcuts and you'll find dozens.

    The best way to learn to use a Mac is to read through the Mac Manual as Tina pointed out above (which I wrote). It would also be good to browse the tutorials on Apple's website:

    You should also learn by using your Mac constantly. Do not be afraid of it.

    If you have any further questions, you can always post them here.
