Overview

"Microsoft Press "RM" Computer User's Dictionary", our entry into this thriving market, features a Field Guide sized trim (5 1/2 x 8 7/16), 400 pages, and approximately 3200 terms and 70 illustrations. Most terms will have shortened versions of the in-depth definitions featured in the Third Edition of the Microsoft Press Computer Dictionary, but will also feature the latest in computer terminology drawn from our quarterly online updates. The "Microsoft Press Computer User's Dictionary" is ideal for beginning to intermediate computer users at home, at the office, and in school. Like the Third Edition, the pocket edition features a more professional, traditional-dictionary format and layout — including phonetic respellings, parts of speech, and definitions broken down into numbered lists where appropriate for easy reading. Regular quarterly updates will be made to the dictionary on the MSPress Web site to extend the shelf life of the book.

We're publishing this book in time for back-to-school promotions.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Averaging a dozen bolded main entries and cross-referenced terms per page, this concise dictionary is bound to be a handy reference when tackling ponderous computer manuals, browsing other computer literature (even that of Microsoft's rivals) or the Internet. Quarterly updates are available online. The back cover, but not the CIP, notes that this is the third edition. Tabs would have rendered it even more user-friendly.
