I'm quite sure that my students will get me through my problems with Windows, however, can anyone suggest a good source for novice minitab users. I.e. a manual or book that explains the various commands and provides nice examples and explanations for why various commands and subcommands are used-- a "Minitab for Dummies". I feel as though I have a very valuable resource to use with my AP class, but have no idea how to tap into it.

Generally the Minitab documentation is pretty clear as statistical software documentation goes, though I am not familiar with the manual for the Windows Student Edition. You might try _The Minitab Handbook_. It consists of a whole lot of worked examples. The version I have assumes you are typing commands in rather than using the menus. I think you can still do that on the Windows and Mac versions. Minitab, Inc., would either have it or know where to get it.
