GCSE Computing/AQA

This is a book about GCSE Computing. It aims to fit in with the AQA GCSE Computing syllabus but is not endorsed by AQA. It should be useful as a revision guide or to find alternative explanations to the ones in your textbook. If you haven't heard of a GCSE then this book probably won't be of much interest to you but you can find out about them at GCSE.

If any part of this book is unclear or even wrong then please post a comment on the discussion page or simply fix it yourself! In particular, please say if the book assumes any knowledge or skills which not all GCSE Computing students have.
