CAIRO BOOKS's Description
This new edition of Invitation to Computer Science follows the breadth-first
guidelines recommended by CC2001 to teach computer science topics from the
ground up. The authors begin by showing that computer science is the study of
algorithms, the central theme of the book, then move up the next five levels of
the hierarchy: hardware, virtual machine, software, applications, and ethics.
Utilizing rich pedagogy and a consistently engaging writing style, Schneider
and Gersting provide students with a solid grounding in theoretical concepts,
as well as important applications of computing and information technology. A
laboratory manual and accompanying software is available as an optional bundle
with this text.
