Cambridge International AS and A Level Computer Science offers a complete set of resources to accompany the 9608 syllabus. This coursebook delivers an accessible guide to the theoretical and practical skills that are required by the course, with a clear progression of tasks that consolidate and develop knowledge. It offers students detailed descriptions of the concepts, reinforced with examples that outline complex subject matter in a clear way. Alongside fundamental definitions, higher level programming skills are developed through the explanation of processes and consolidated by practical exam-type questions for students to attempt.
