Computer Technology: Changes, Challenges, and Choices
EMC/Paradigm Publishing, Mar 1, 2001 - Computers - 188 pages
Writing in simple language, the authors (they teach at Georgia Perimeter College) teach the reader the history, technology, and uses of the machines we can no longer do without. Chapter quizzes test the student on vocabulary and concepts. This text is suitable for introductory computer courses at the high school, technical school, or college level. The competent text, which is presented within a somewhat frenetic layout, covers hardware, software, software applications, networks and computer security, and the Internet. c. Book News Inc.
