Book News Annotation:
Stressing the relationship between computing and the disciplines of engineering and mathematics, Hoganso (Kennesaw State University) provides a concise introduction, in a reader-friendly, two-color layout, to the fundamentals of computer science. The text, intended for a one-semester course, is written especially for computer science majors, interdisciplinary students, and students focusing on the social science and business aspects of computing, and covers theoretical foundations, software and programming, computer systems and architecture, and advanced concepts and applications. The text requires only a modest understanding of mathematics, and the prerequisites needed for each chapter are outlined in chapter introductions. Knowledge of digital computer electronics and digital logic is not required as a prerequisite. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
