This book is a must-read for everyone who wants to enter the field of computer science or wants to have general knowledge about what’s going on in the field.
The book does not give you enough knowledge to do practical stuff, but it will guide you to choose a path for your studies and gives you a very good insight of opportunities exist in the field.
It took me a long time to read the book, but it worth every single second I’ve spent reading it. Aug 01, Irzam Hardiansyah rated it really liked it Shelves: So inevitably I read it. It’s quite good though. Very good for someone looking to brush up on the basics. I think that if you are interested in the subject, this book is an easy read.
The author does a good job of not over complicating things, by keeping the details on a “An Overview” level. Ever want to know how computers work? If you answered yes this is the book for you, very comprehensive. Done in twleve weeks. Skipped the last chapter; The Theory of Computation. This book illustrates basic computer science concepts and explore some frontier area in computer science, you will have a global view of computer science after reading this book.
It’s language is quite simple and easy to understand, I did admire the author’s ability to explain a concept so clearly and simply, to some people, you may feel that the author is wordy. And this book pay large attention to social issues caused by computer science, which is very meaningful: If it cause some problems that overshadow its benefits, obviously it’s useless.
What I must say is that this book is a enlightening book, giving me a global understanding of those parts and researches computer science. But I found that this book has its own shortcoming. It just give us some concepts of computer science, and it never gives us a through implementation of these functions mentioned in this book.
Brookshear, Computer Science: An Overview | Pearson
All in all, after I finished this book, I am delighted to find that I have a global view of computer science, while thereafter I realize that I cannot make something useful: I don’t know python programming, though it’s mentioned throughout the book, I can’t implement a neural network, I can’t do some computer graphics that is eye-catching; I really don’t know how to do them; the book is so blank and contains nothing but some concepts simply illustrated.
To do those things, you must learn more and practice more, which is not that easy as the description of those structure or techniques in computer world that you may feel in this book.
But this book is a lighthouse throughout your learning in some specific fields in computer science. Jul 20, Daniil Blagiy rated it really liked it Shelves: I wish it was the first Computer Science book I’ve read It wasn’t. Great introduction to the field of CS.
It describes every major CS topic, meaning that the beginners will be able to define their subject of interest in a broad variety. Jul 24, Jamela rated it really liked it. I read it for knowledge information about computer science.
This is a good book as per its title – an overview of computer science – and a good fit for its intended audience: The book touches on many computer science topics but does not go in-depth – just enough to give a primer for subsequent courses. The book isn’t a light read for non-computer science students though, it does go into technicalities that kind of require the readers to at least have an idea of what it is – so this book is definitely really only g This is a good book as per its title – an overview of computer science – and a good fit for its intended audience: The book isn’t a light read for non-computer science students though, it does go into technicalities that kind of require the readers to at least have an idea of what it is – so this book is definitely really only good for computer science students not as the preface would otherwise suggest.
A great book to understand the basics required in my university and my daily activity, code.
