Pam’s Page

NOTE: Adjustments to the content of these books to reflect changes made by Apple in June 2017 and September 2017 have been made. If you want to download the newer version of any of the books DELETE the existing book from iBooks THEN download and open the newer version in iBooks.

The books on this page are available for members of AUSOM Inc. free of charge. The books have been created me, Pam Doughty and are in iBooks format.

All the iWork apps i.e. Pages, Numbers and Keynote are available from the App Store (Mac or iPad/iPhone) or via iCloud. Recently added is an Introduction to Preview for the Mac. Hence the books have been arranged in sections (shown with Blue headings).

After you download your book you need to open it in the iBooks app.
NOTE: The iBooks.app requires a Mac running Mavericks or better and iBooks is a pre-installed app in iOS 8 or better.

All books were written when iOS10 and Sierra were the most up-to-date operating systems. I am constantly checking the content as the apps and operating systems are updated and will adjust the books when significant differences are found.

Coming soon:

All these books will soon be available as PDF versions and future titles will extend the iCloud and iPad sections. ALSO the Other Books for the Mac Users section will slowly grow with items such as ‘Preview and PDFs for the Mac’ and ‘Exploring Finder for Mac Beginners’.

I am happy to answer any questions and would like to hear of your ideas for future topics or improvements to the existing books.
