This is a superb program. Easy to use and to understand. Great Job! When I finish this one, I would like to go into the subject further. As I am a "newbie" to Mac this would be most helpful. I have learned a great deal but know that there are important "gaps" and feel that these videos are the answer I have been looking for.

Very good overview of security on the Mac OS X, especially coming from the Windows world. I had just finished Mac 101, and found that the whole presentation about .dmg files was not applicable to the download of the security video. It was very confusing trying to get it all working. But then it was just a lesson in the school of hard knocks....

Everything I've downloaded so far has been very well done and I suspect the same with this purchase.

Thanks for a great tutorial. There were a couple of instances in which the volume had to be adjusted because of talking softly at times. I learned a lot.
