As always Gary is succinct and quite clear in his directions. He points out software shortcuts and such that I had forgotten, and many that I was unaware of. He is always practical, and doesn’t try to snow his audience with jargon. I think this series of lectures/discussions are well worth the cost. Gary helps you get up to speed in a hurry. I refer back to his tutorials from time to time when I want to explore an area further, but initially was too busy to try out some maneuver. I have used a Mac since 1986, and am quite sophisticated in some aspects, and not so much in others.

Flattens the Learning Curve

I recently upgraded from an old MacBook to a new MacBook Pro and leaped over a couple of OS versions to El Capitan. Gary’s Video Guide shortened and flattened the learning curvey for me considerably. I know I would have not discovered several useful new features without the guide. And it is also surprising how many “old tricks” I had forgotten until Gary’s video reiterated them. The organization and sequencing of topics is natural and logical so that by the time you get to Advanced Tips, you are ready for them.

Gary is so good….

I am a seasoned Mac user, but Gary never ceases to amaze me with great little tidbits to make life easier. This is an excellent course for any Mac user, nicely paced, and comprehensive even for someone who is brand new to the OS. I liked that I could airplay it to my apple tv and try the features of El Capitan out by following along. Well done.
