Computer Literacy
Getting the Most from Your PC

September 1998 | 448 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

Using a horizontal organization (i.e., by task rather than program) Computer Literacy introduces students in the behavioral sciences to the computer resources they use on campus to do their work. Beginning with an introduction to computers, authors Ira H. Bernstein and Paul Havig use numerous examples with demonstrations (such as how to export an Excel file to a Word file) to show the reader how to select between programs for their specific needs, how to use the computer for communication and literature search purposes, how to use computers for databases and statistical programming, and some basics of computer programming. To enhance your students reading, the authors provide:

Computer Hardware
Computer Software
Communication among Computers
The Internet
Word Processing
Relational Databases
Graphics, Sound, Multimedia and Presentations
Essentials of Programming
Statistical Programming
Real-Time and Batch Programming

"Bernstein and Havig provide a wonderful structure, including chapters on computer hardware, software, communication among computers, the internet, word processing, spreadsheets, relational databases, graphics, sound, multimedia, presentations, and chapters on programming essentials, statistical programming, and real-time and batch programming. . . Recommended for new computer users reading information about Microsoft products."
