Overview

Written to provide all readers with an opportunity to learn and demonstrate computer and Internet literacy. Computer Literary for IC3 was written to align with a certification called “Internet and Computing Core Certification (IC3)”. This certification is for users who want to demonstrate critical computer and Internet skills valued in today’s academic and professional environments. The Computer Literacy for IC3 text is written to meet the certification standards and provide readers with a broad understanding of the key components of computer literacy in order to prepare for the exam.

This certification has 3 units:
• Unit 1: Computing Fundamentals (computer concepts)
• Unit 2: Using Productivity Software
• Unit 3: Living Online (the Internet)

Each of these units is available as a separate Computer Literacy for IC3 text. This text contains: Unit 1: Computing Fundamentals and covers basic computer concepts including computer hardware, computer software, and using an operating system. The second edition of Computer Literacy for IC3 has been revised to keep up with the IC3 program’s evolution, which reflects the recent changes in computers and technology. Instead of publishing one large, comprehensive text, the three units are now available as separate, smaller texts.

Identifying Types of Computers (1.1.0); Identifying Computer Components and Their Functions (1.1.0); Maintain Computer Equipment (1.2.0); Identifying Software and Hardware Interaction and Types of Software; Using an Operating System; Using Windows

Computer Literacy for IC3 prepares readers from the IC3 certification, which ensures that students and professionals have all the core skills needed to work in today’s technological environment.

This book was required by the instructor of my computer class. It has been very easy to understand, easy to learn, very informative, and useful. I would recommend this book to anyone who would like to learn about computer literacy. I learned alot in the first chapter! It covers a huge array of subjects. You can learn about anitvirus, how to deal with problems, what the programs do, etc. It covers Hard drives, Hardware, Keys, Components, Drives, you name it. It covers printers, devices, acceccories, audio, video. I just wish I had taken this class with this book before I took Keyboarding and Office classes. It would have helped me to learn about the computer before I tried to use it. I hope this was helpful information. I really do enjoy this book. I am keeping this book in my library for future reference.
