Title: How Computers Work, Seventh Edition

Authors: Ron White, Timothy Edward Downs
Rating: 4/5
Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
Good book

This interesting guide showed me how microchips, software, memory, and hardware all work together in my computer with detailed (but easy-to-follow) explanations and full-color illustrations.
Of course, there is one problem with this book: it doesn't include the very latest information on recent developments in Internet technologies, multimedia sound and video, Pentium III processors, DVD drives, digital cameras, cable modems....
But i think that it was worth to buy this book and i'm waiting for next editions.

Great Book

I was asked to teach a class using this book. Unfortunately, the book is over the heads of most of the students. It is not the best job of presenting the information either. None of the students like the book. I do not recommend it as a class textbook, but as a reference for someone who already is in the data comm field. It does have some good technical information, but is not presented in a way that you can read the book from cover to cover.
