How to play chords and tablature at the same time?

I have been reading my book Complete Learn To Play Acoustic Guitar and on most of the pages it has a chord symbol above and tablature below. The tablature doesn't match the chord above. Im wondering if someone explain how to play it.

    I would have to see it. I have seen sheet music with chord names above the notes that did not match. It is best to learn to read standard notation.

    I think Tony B is right.

    The tablature is of the melody (the tune). The chords are the accompaniment. You are not meant to play both at the same time.

    This should have been explained in the book.

    Someone can indeed explain how to play it: a music teacher which you should get lessons from right away.
