From Library Journal:

Slack editing makes this an ineffectual resource for the targeted audience of "students and other nonspecialists." The articles, written by different authors, display inconsistent quality and difficulty levels. Important topics such as "UNIX" and "programming" do not have their own entries. In fact, there is no general description of UNIX at all, with the articles referenced in the keyword index mentioning UNIX just in passing. The only broad definition of "Programs" consists of three sentences in the article "Hardware." The index has page number errors and sloppy entries ("Mainframe computer" and "Mainframe computers"). A preferable reference is The Prentice Hall Encyclopedia of Information Technology (1987), which, although narrower in scope, targets a similar audience and is far better organized and well written. (Compare its "Workstations" article with Macmillan's.) Libraries are advised to wait until a computer reference of Macmillan's scope is published with Prentice-Hall's quality. Not recommended.
