Overview

Computer science is constantly developing, and computer-related terms keep multiplying. Here's a good way for both kids and adults to stay abreast of computer terminology--and it's quicker and easier than getting a computer science degree! (Though lots of kids who pick up this book will want to do that, too--later.) Kids will 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 author keeps all information user-friendly, never getting overly technical but always at-the-ready with practical tips and useful information. Readers will find explanations for a wide range of terms such as access time, cache, CPU, bit, RAM, disk drive, Java, virtual reality, and many more--approximately 800 terms in total. Many terms come with examples to illustrate key concepts. The book encourages 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 computer revolution. (Age 9 and older)
