About the Book

Information and Communication Technology in 24 Hours - Book 2 is the second volume of the series of reference books written for students preparing for the HKDSE ICT Examination. 

As with Book 1, all chapters in Book 2 were written in accordance to the Information and Communication Technology Curriculum and Assessment Guide (applicable to the 2016 HKDSE examination and onwards). Special emphasis is made on the topic “Algorithm design”. 

Notes were written in simple English which is very easy to comprehend. Detailed and comprehensive explanations on difficult concepts were laid out systematically. The tabular presentation in a number of topics is exceptionally useful when doing revision. Tailor-made Multiple Choice Questions, Worked Examples and Mock Examination were carefully designed and specifically written for an effective checking of study progress.
