Computer Science An Overview, 13th Edition

Computer Science An Overview, Global EditionFree Download Computer Science An Overview Thirteenth Edition (Global Edition) Book in PDF written by J. Glenn Brookshear (Author Emeritus) & Dennis Brylow (Marquette University) and published by Pearson. This book presents an introductory survey of computer science. It explores the breadth of the subject while including enough depth to convey an honest appreciation of the topics involved.

According to the Authors,” We wrote this text for students of computer science as well as students from other disciplines. As for computer science students, most begin their studies with the illusion that computer science is programming, web browsing, and Internet file sharing because that is essentially all they have seen. Yet computer science is much more than this. Beginning computer science students need exposure to the breadth of the subject in which they are planning to major. Providing this exposure is the theme of this book. It gives students an overview of computer science—a foundation from which they can appreciate the relevance and interrelationships of future courses in the field. This survey approach is, in fact, the model used for introductory courses in the natural sciences.

This broad background is also what students from other disciplines need if they are to relate to the technical society in which they live. A computer science course for this audience should provide a practical, realistic understanding of the entire field rather than merely an introduction to using the Internet or training in the use of some popular software packages. There is, of course, a proper place for that training, but this text is about educating.

New in the 13th Edition

Now in color! The move to a full color printing process in the 13th edition has allowed us to make many figures and diagrams more descriptive, and to use syntax coloring to better effect for clarifying code and pseudocode segments in
the text. Most modern programming interfaces use color to aid the programmer’s understanding of code; your computer science textbook should do no less. 

A major theme during the development of this 13th edition has been highlighting the intersections with the new College Board Advanced Placement Computer Science Principles (“CSP”) exam. This “breadth-first” textbook for introducing computer science has included many of the big ideas and computational practices codified in the CSP framework since long before that exam came into existence; prior editions of the book have been used in pilot versions of CSP courses, and as a professional development resource for educators preparing to teach the high school version of the course.
