Computer science is constantly developing, and computer terms keep multiplying. Here's a good way for kids and adults to stay abreast of computer terminology. It's easier than getting a computer science degree though lots of kids who pick up this book will want to do that too, when they're a little older They'll love this book because it defines terms they're constantly encountering -- words and phrases they need to know when they sit down at their keyboard and gaze into their monitor. The authors keep all information user-friendly, and offer many practical tips. Readers will find explanations for a wide range of terms -- approximately 800 total. Where helpful, the authors provide examples to illustrate key concepts. They encourage kids (and adults) to take a hands-on attitude, sit down at their computers and figure out how to get the most out of today's hardware, software, and the Internet.
