Rapid advances in technology mean developments at the cutting edge of IT are changing computers and generating new terminology and jargon. Keeping up with new technologies and their impact on computing is vital if you want to gain the knowledge needed in this fast-moving world.

Leading experts from the British Computer Society have compiled this 12th edition of the most authoritative and current guide to ICT and computing terms available. Divided into themed sections, it builds your understanding of computing in 4 key areas - what computer systems are made of how they are developed, how they work, and how they are used.

Contains over 3,400 terms and definitions
Fully indexed and cross-referenced
Supports the National Curriculum and National Qualifications Framework
Ideal for GCSE, A-level, ECDL, 14-19 Diplomas and other courses
