Computer technology is constantly developing, which is why this title has undergone a complete revision, making it a virtually brand new quick-reference book for all computer users. The authors have expanded it to include more than 2,500 alphabetically arranged computer-related terms and definitions. They emphasize what they call the “human side” of computing, explaining terms as well as defining them in clear non-technical language wherever possible. Filled with enlightening illustrations, diagrams, and tables.

Review:

With 1,800 definitions and an abundance of Internet and online terms, this dictionary is perfect for new and intermediate computer users. The entries range from basic to advanced computer terminology and include historical terms and software concepts. The reference even defines and illustrates concepts and terminology for several graphics applications. This pocket-sized dictionary is packed with illustrations, charts, and examples and the comprehensive cross-referencing and clear language make it easy to use. Off- the-shelf software users will find this guide particularly useful.

From the Author:

Our goal in writing this book is to explain, not just define. We feel you have a right to know how your computer works, not just how to use it. Thus, we cover not only business software, personal computers, and the Internet, but also fundamentals such as computer architecture and binary arithmetic.

This edition adds over 200 new entries, including new coverage of Windows 2000 and substantially increased coverage of UNIX, networking, and Internet commerce, as well as a dozen new illustrations.
