The book covers concepts that are foundational to all versions of Windows and then provides detailed information on both Windows XP and Vista. Sections of text that are exclusive to one version are clearly marked with a shaded stripe down the edge of the page. Individuals may choose to read the Vista-specific text without worrying about missing vital information. This provides students and postgraduate medical transcriptionists a reference for Windows regardless of the version they are required to use on the job and allows the instructor to tailor the class to the specific needs to the student and the resources available to the school.
