PC Guide is a magazine published by Future publishing (one of the countries largest computer/internet magazine publishers). It costs a fairly hefty £4.99 each month, but I feel it is worth the money. It was PC Guide who taught me a lot of what I know now. The magazine comes out monthly, and contains in easy to understand language. Each magazine comes with a cover disc, which often has some very useful things on it. The April 2001 issue’s disc had amongst others: Learn French (an easy to use French language tutor): Incredimail, (An email programme you can tailor to your needs). In this months issue (April 2001) the articles include: All the latest news from the computing world; looking after your pc; how to unfreeze your pc; how to print effectively; group tests, and a heap more. It also contains the usual help page, letters page (where I actually won a great prize). I begrudged paying the £4.99 cover price when I first saw the magazine in my local Sainsbury’s, but am glad I did. The magazine has a web page on future publishing’s web site, which when I checked it out was way out of date. It would be better if it had its own dedicated site, as it is such a great magazine. Some magazines you need a degree in computing to understand, and poor brainless mortals like me are completely horrified upon opening. But PC Guide doesn’t have this effect at all! It is easy to understand and aimed at the beginner to medium user. Though other users might enjoy learning how to get the point across in easy to understand ways.
