Discovering Computers - Fundamentals, 2010 Edition: Living in a Digital World covers the same breadth, but with less depth than Discovering Computers 2010, Complete. The text is ideal for use in a short course on computer concepts or in application software courses because of its thorough and concise coverage. Students will gain a solid understanding of the current trends in technology and computer concepts as they are applied to today’s digital world. Updated for currency, this book and the robust Online Companion provide students with the most up-to-date information on the latest technology in today’s digital world.
