Computer Fun

Science Projects with Computers
Schulman, et. al.
1985

This book is so old that the computer on the cover doesn’t have a mouse. I believe that girl’s finger is poised over one of the function keys!  Remember when bolding, underlining, etc. were achieved by some combination of <alt>, <ctrl>, <shift>, and a function key?  They made keyboard overlay guides out of cardboard so you could remember the combinations.  This book will win you no blue ribbons at the science fair, trust me.

Easy DOS It!
Bauer
1985

There very well might be a reason why someone would want to learn DOS.   The information in this book is readily available without having to make space in the crowded computer section for this ancient book.  A small/medium sized public library’s computer section reveals the library’s relevancy, so effort should be made to keep it up to date.

I just love the cover, though.  It definitely looks like computer clip art from 1985!  Gotta love the $5 price tag.
