Reader Friendly

The book is reader friendly. It is divided into chapters that relate to each other. Information is easy to locate and it gives detailed information on how to do a certain task.

Technology in Action

The book and disc worked out great for my son. The thing I didn't like was the fact I ordered next day mail on a Friday and paid a bunch for the service. I believed I would then get it on Saturday!! I didn't receive it until Tuesday. Don't pay for the supposedly faster service!!

Technology In Action

Great book for learning the basics up to some more technical aspects of today's computer systems. This book made me realize how little I actually know about computer technology and helped me to get a better understanding of many concepts.

The coverage of ethics in many areas of the use of computers sets this book apart

There are many books that could be used in the introduction to computers level of classes. They tend to be very similar, in topics, order and structure. While this book is more of the same, there is one feature that stands out, the coverage of ethics in the context of computing. Ethics and the proper usage of computers is a significant aspect of the computing culture for all of us, but it is more significant for the college student. The advent of the Internet has made it much easier to obtain information and harder to filter it for accuracy. It is now much easier to plagiarize; all you have to do is copy and paste. Fortunately, it is also easier for instructors to identify an act of plagiarism; there are websites that will do it for you. The digitization of music makes it easy to download and play music on MP3 players. This list could continue for some time. There are several places in the book where ethical principles are related to the topic. It is to the credit of the authors that this coverage is not just a spouting of facts; the questions are designed to have the students think about the situation and reach their own ethical conclusions. It is most unlikely that I will ever teach an introductory course in computing again. However, if I was to do so, I would take a hard look at this book, it is suitable for the course.
