Product Description


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 emphasise 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Computer Dictionaries are Hard to Keep Current 21 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Vinyl Bound
This pocket book contains clear and simple explanations and illustrations. This dictionary is probably ideal for the beginning to strong intermediate user who wants to have a reference at hand which gets to the point and leaves you feeling informed. It is well cross referenced, and strong on Internet terminology. Despite its very manageable size one rarely has occasion to look up terms not described in the dictionary. If you were to have just one computer dictionary then, for most users, this would be it. Users who feel very ill at ease with computer terminology may however want to consider 'Webster's New World Dictionary of Computer Terms', a equally good book which written with a slightly more experienced audience in mind.
This 'Barrons Dictionary of Computer and Internet Terms' is one of the best dictionaries of computer terms I've seen on the market. But as any other computer dictionary this one is also difficult to keep current and updated. The subject changes too much to have a good guide in printed form. But I love this book very much and recommend it to everyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good quick lookup! 28 Feb 2000
As with most computing books, they are soon out of date, but this is a dictionary that will help keep you informed of the troublesome TLA (three letter acronyms) that appear in many computer books and magazines. Ok so it's not perfect, but neither is the Oxford English dictionary. Buy it use and enjoy it.

This is a good and very detailed dictionary, however for the life of me I can't work out why the paper version is £1.98 and the kindle version £7.55. Makes no sense. I went with the Kindle version (more fool me) for studying on the go and I will hopefully use it a good many times to come. But Amazon, please sort out your pricing - digital media should always cost less than physical any other way is only fuelling piracy
