Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
I chose this instead of the weightier Desk Encyclopedia, also published by Amacom, to supplement MCSE study materials and the New Riders Essential Reference for the Core Exams. There is very little I haven't found (a few odds and ends of acronyms), but it has very good illustrations and charts of many concepts that can be extremely arcane. It will even take you back to the early days of computing, and includes cites for a number of vendors who met their demise in the 80's and early 90's. Remember the PC/jr? It's in there.
This is an excellent resource for those whose knowledge of the field extends from basic to excellent, because it's hard to believe that anyone (well, okay, may a few...) could possible stuff all this stuff in one brain.

Many times I have read other updated computer books and have not found them listed in this glossary. I am an intermediate computer user that reads other computer architect books. If the word is listed it will often give a very good explaination. I have many times learned things from this book that the authors from other computer books didn't make clear.

This book is better than all the rest. I checked out an even more expensive book, and it didn't even come close. It seems like there isn't a term missing and its EASY to understand too! A must buy.

This is one of the most comprehensive glossaries around, I have seen nothing else for the price that even comes close. Every MIS shop should have one for quick reference.
