Overview

Create a new approach to explaining the math and logic fundamentals required in the information technology industry. Practical Problems in Mathematics for Information Technology is an exciting new resource for building a solid foundation in the mathematical skills that are used in a number of areas, such as networking, systems administration, programming, database management, web programming, and computer repair. By presenting examples, problems, and exercises that are taken directly from these concentration areas, readers will not only build their mathematical know-how, but they will achieve the added benefit of being fully prepared for the types of challenges they are likely to encounter on the job. Real-world examples from the industry are included throughout this new book.
