Today I became aware of a new FREE e-book for students entering college. It could also be useful to High School students in the upper grades because they have reached the point where their computing needs have become much more demanding.
This e-book titled “Safe Computing For The College Bound” was written by fellow Microsoft MVP Dan Appleman, a software developer and author of several books on technology and security. In it is advice for the teenager who is a student who is headed off to College, on buying a computer. Among other things, he discusses laptops and desktops and how to choose the best computer for you. After he discusses the options in computers, he focuses on security for your computer in a college atmosphere. He also advises the best way to keep your computer secure while you are away at College and also covers the rules and regulations you are likely to find for the Computer Networks at College.
“Safe Computing For The College Bound” is a free e-book that is likely to give you a good start to finding the right computer for you and learning to keep it safe and secure in a completely different environment than you’ve had before.
Dan Appleman is the founder and CEO of Desaware Inc. and co-founder of APress and also maintains a blog. He has written several books including Moving to VB.NET: Strategies, Concepts and Code and maintains his website Always Use Protection: A Teen’s Guide to Safe Computing
Take some time to read his latest e-book “Safe Computing For The College Bound”, and learn what to expect in computing when you get to College. It may prevent you becoming a victim of Spyware, Malware, or any of the other evils roaming the Internet!
