Best-selling Technology in Action uses technology to teach you technology. With this hand-on approach you'll develop computing tasks and skills you can apply at work, in class, or at home. Designed for today's technically savvy students, the text introduces difficult concepts at a basic level early on, then expands upon these skills as you build toward mastery.
The 17th Edition offers all-new coverage of Ransomware as a Service, CPUs that fight back against malware, and bandwidth throttling. New Dig Deeper articles include "Building Your Own Gaming Computer," and the impact of the global COVID-19 pandemic is explored as it relates to technology challenges, successes, ethics, and social equity.
