Review:

Review by J. M. King, emeritus, University of Georgia Clayton's dictionary will go a long way toward helping anyone, professional communications workers to beginning students, in the daunting search for the meaning of terms in telecommunications. The attractive package includes more than 4,000 definitions, 600 illustrations, seven appendixes, and the complete text on a searchable CD-ROM. The CD-ROM offers an additional 1,000 pages of cross-referenced material (brief articles from other McGraw-Hill publications) in searchable PDF format. The CD-ROM can be used with both PC and Macintosh platforms, although an alias in the Macintosh version is not linked correctly, so some knowledge of Mac file structure will help get the CD running. The additional articles give a look in greater depth at certain definitions in the text, many of which refer to old or outdated equipment and standards, but which will help understand how telecommunications has evolved. A good reference source for professionals and students. Choice 20030101
