5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Read 20 Oct 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I bought this book as I am studying a Teachers Certificate in I.T and needed a good reference guide to computer acronyms with easy to understand explanations. This book is a joy to read, as it not only explains the computer jargon, it adds some much needed humour, especially when it comes to revising for exams.
Well worth investing in.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great reference in addition to your library 8 April 2005
By bernie VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
This book is exactly what the title implies. If you find yourself having little difficulty describing a computer term, then you can turn to this reference. Everything is in alphabetical order and comes with simple illustrations. Before the alphabet that are medic characters any of these are described.
Due to the accelerating advances in technology many terms are not in this edition.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not What I Expected ! 18 Jun 2001
By NicRic - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When I purchased this book I was looking for a dictionary full of words that a novice would not understand reguarding computers. Instead I ended up with a book with limited definitions and silly jokes ! If I had time I would have returned it ! Half the definitions I look up arent even in the book. Save your money and buy a better dictionary.

a certain cynicism and sarcasm can give humor and insight from between the lines
more than meets the eye very good
company strategy often involves creating words meant to confuse, simply defining them would not increase understanding, In a lighthearted way HE defines the Legtimate technowledgy words in a useful straightforward manner.
