It covers all the major basics of hardware and software, from systems to applications. While it provides information on Microsoft Office and other information systems, it expands its subjects to cover security issues, cybercrime, and even business ethics. Self-study readers looking for a basic introduction to computers will find this an excellent starting point."

- Midwest Book Review

"Computer learners looking for a basic self-teaching primer will find this an excellent survey of the major topics involved in understanding computer hardware and software, and will appreciate the overview which goes beyond systems operations to discuss their applications in various industries ranging from business to security systems. Discussions cover the fundamental concepts involved in system operations and applications and include MIS discussions, an introduction to Microsoft Office's various facets and features, and keys to creating and modifying charts and information management systems. Screen shots and black and white illustrations throughout make the learning process a snap, making this particularly useful for self-study or refresher courses."
