I've been reading computer science books for over six months while trying to learn the field. Of all the material I've come across which amounts to quite a bit, this 200+ page summary without question offers the most valuable review of the core aspects of computer science by far. What really impressed me is the emphasis on computational theory from the start as well as a wide range of examples of various programming languages with code samples to boot. If you're interested in truly learning computer science from its foundation or if you feel unfamiliar with any area of computer science I strongly recommend this book.

This book is a wealth of information for people studying Computer Science. The materials are laid-out in an easy-to-follow format and the explanations are clear and concise (for those with a mind for this type of material). The only problem with this type of book is that it refers to an ever-evolving type of science and may quickly become obsolete, but I would not allow that to deter others from using this book to gain some solid foundations for understanding the principles of CompSci.

This is a competent book on Computer Science, but just about any introductory CS textbook will cover these topics and many more. If you are familiar with other Schaum's outlines, you'll probably know what to expect. The price is no doubt much lower than most CS textbooks, so this book certainly is justified in certain cases. Nothing terrible in here, but also nothing terribly exciting or original. Worth buying and reading if you are interested in CS as a subject of study and are not required to buy some other CS text for an Intro course.

Very helpful in explaining the basic principles of computer science. I'm presently studying introduction to programming along with C programming and I use it to explain basics of Pseudocode and other design principles.

This is a good book for anyone interested in computers. It is always good to know the history of any subject you are interested in. Some things I knew already but found the history of computers interesting.

Im considering here the format of this book on kindle only. Mind that all the examples will be written with dot size math symbols that could be blown OVERSIZE SO ONES WONT BE ABLE TO READ MORE THAN A FEW ON THE SCREEN and even those are out of focus. Readeble if youve got good yes. pity.
