Reviews

As a computing teacher who has seen a lot of text books over the years, I would recommend the BCS Glossary as the essential companion for students studying the subject at any level. -- Ian Daddo-Langlois New College Telford Remains the essential reference and support for those teaching or taking computer and ICT courses in schools, FE and universities from GCSE level onwards and cannot be recommended highly enough. -- Ian Carey FCIEA The latest edition of the BCS Glossary has been expanded to include developments since 2008 in areas such as mobile broadband, tablets, apps and data storage. Updates include re-location of some definitions to more appropriate sections, expansion of the section on e-payment and comprehensive lists of common abbreviations and acronyms. The text is authoritative yet clear, concise and easily understood. The Glossary is easy to use either by browsing the themed sections or using the comprehensive index. This resource is used by examination boards as a basis for their definitions and remains the essential reference and support for those teaching or taking computer and ICT courses in schools, FE and universities from GCSE level onwards and cannot be recommended highly enough. -- Ian Carey FCIEA ...this is a compact and neat dictionary of terms compiled in a single source. [...[ a handy book to have on the shelf. -- Dr Siraj A. Shaikh FBCS CITP CSci Coventry University
