The Virtual Bookcase Reviews of 'Modem Coach (Personal Trainer)':

Reviewer Rob Slade wrote:
Once upon a time, if you wanted to get the most out of a printer, you had to be able to read the manual and figure out the commands. Nowadays printers come with drivers the major word processing programs, and vice versus. In the future, modems will be as easy to install and use as printers are today--but they aren't, yet. Thus the heart and soul of a modem book has to deal with installation and setup. The current work falls short, in this regard. Initialization strings and modem commands are referred to fleetingly, and without adequate explanation. It is assumed that installation will work out OK without assistance--a staggering leap of faith where modems are concerned. Setup of the communications software is also confidently expected to be trouble free. The review of BBSes and online services is brief, but reasonable given the space. Chapter six, though, dealing with support software, is surprisingly good. So, too, is the chapter on viruses--not great, but free of the most egregious and common errors. copyright Robert M. Slade, 1997
