Practical Computer Literacy August 8, 2011
This textbook is very informative for someone who doesn't know anything about computers to those who are pretty knowledgeable such as me. I learned a few new things from this textbook which was bought for a class, but other than that I wouldn't have bought it for the simple fact I already knew most of what was in the book, but the exercises are helpful for beginners.
