Product Description


"I am currently using Understanding Computers: Today and Tomorrow 2003 Enhanced Edition. I have used the Morley/Parker book for many years and decided to change to the most recent edition for the summer session. I have always respected the writing consistency and ease of reading of the text compared to other texts. It follows a good outline and doesnat repeat itself."-Donna Madsen, Kirkwood Community College

5.0 out of 5 stars The 101 and X99 level book on Computing 15 Mar 2007
By M. SHEIKH - Published on Amazon.com
I studied this book for my Intro to Computing class and found very interesting. This book covers topics beyond computing namely data communications as well. It also discusses the history or evolution of digital computing, worldwide web, software development processes, hardwares, network types and topologies, cyber crimes, and so many other things. This book is more than enough. It definitely addicts students like me and influences them to choose Info Sys, Info Tech, or Computer Science as their major. I believe this book is suitable for both introductory or survey courses "101" and Independent Learning courses "X99"; simply, this book is well written.
