Product Description

Synopsis

This is a book that explains hundreds of the most important (and, often, most unintelligible) computer terms in a way that readers can understand. This book - is a straightforward guide that gives "user-friendly" definitions of computer-related terms, and in many cases, gives a brief explanation of how and why they are used. It covers wordage used in both the Macintosh and the PC worlds, as well as typesetting and other related terminology, such as "halftone," "leading," "vaporware," "PostScript," and "e-mail." The book is suitable for users at all levels.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very dated 25 Mar 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
While this book appears to be one that may have been useful some time ago, it has suffered from what all computer books suffer from... it is no longer relevant. Somebody wanting to try to understand their son or daughter would be best off looking elsewhere to try to learn something, or they run the risk of using outdated terminology and getting a dated understanding of an industry that has changed radically since the book's publication.
