Revised and updated with the latest information in the field, the Fourth Edition of Computer Science Illuminated continues to engage and enlighten students on the fundamental concepts and diverse capabilities of computing. Written by two of today’s most respected computer science educators, Nell Dale and John Lewis, the text provides a broad overview of the many aspects of the discipline from a generic view point. Separate program language chapters are available as bundle items for those instructors who would like to explore a particular programming language with their students. The many layers of computing are thoroughly explained beginning with the information layer, working through the hardware, programming, operating systems, application, and communication layers, and ending with a discussion on the limitations of computing. Perfect for introductory computing and computer science courses, the fourth edition's thorough presentation of computing systems provides computer science majors with a solid foundation for further study, and offers non-majors a comprehensive and complete introduction to computing.

Please do not listen to the other two reviews since one is complaining about the difficulty of computer science in general and the other is off on some tangent about shipping. This book provided great examples and applications of general computer science concepts. Great for a class. The only downside was occasionally the teacher's edition's answer key was wrong.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I needed this class for my Intro to Computer Science Class. The textbook has alot of detailed information that isn't easy to understand, especially since it covers very advanced, broad topics of computer science. It was pretty hard for me to read this textbook.

It is two weeks since ordering the book. The class started more than 10 days ago. The book finally come late today. I have already reordered a same type of book from other bookseller, because I was not sure this bookseller had mailed the book at all. There is no tracking number.
