Getting Started in Vista: A Beginner’s Guide to the World’s Best Medical Software

Written by Kathy Ice.

This is the must-have introductory manual you need to get you up and running quickly and easily. In clear, jargon-free language, this friendly guide will walk you through signon, navigation, and basic operation of the Vista medical software.

A must-read for users new to Vista. A very sound introduction to Vista conventions for the user.

—Greg Kreis, Pioneer Data Systems

Getting Started in Vista is intended for new end users of Vista. It provides a basic introduction to Vista’s standard (non-Windows) user interface, and covers such topics as signing on, navigation, getting help, and using the native text editors. It provides a brief introduction to Mailman, but does not introduce any other specific Vista package or application.

If you want to take a look at what’s inside, we’ve provided Chapter 3 as a free download (~1.2 MB PDF).
