A Glossary of Computing Terms (10th)

Book Available A Glossary of Computing Terms (10th)

Author: British Computing Society

To accommodate over 1800 terms, the eighth edition has been restructured, and organized into three parts: how computer systems are used, what computer systems are made of, and how computer systems work. Each of these sections contains subcategories under which the terms can be found. This guide defines the fundamentals but often lacks entries for advanced high-tech terminology. The guide's organizational structure makes it difficult to locate specific words. Still, this book is a worthwhile option for anyone who wants to read up on the basic terminology of a particular field of computing in a systematic way. It contains over 40 essays that give background information on the terms and illustrate them in context.
