Cambridge IGCSE Computer Science By David Watson and Helen Williams pdf download

Cambridge IGCSE Computer Science.

This textbook has been written to provide the knowledge, understanding and practical skills that a student would need for the Cambridge International Examinations Computer Science IGCSE and GCE O Level courses.

The textbook is part of a package which includes a student CD-ROM. A teacher’s CD-ROM is also available separately which includes additional guidance and other useful information (see later in this introduction).

This book and accompanying student CD-ROM provide:
• practice end-of-chapter questions which include questions from past Cambridge International Examinations papers
• activities which give students additional guidance and practice
• sample program solutions for programming activities
• hints and tips where these provide additional help and knowledge.

Although this book has been written with the Cambridge International Examinations syllabus in mind, it can still be used as a useful  reference textbook for other GCSE computing courses. It is also a useful source of information for those students starting an A level computer science course – especially at AS level.


The textbook contains 13 chapters. Although it is possible for some elements of the practical problem-solving chapters to be examined in Paper 1 (Theory of Computer Science), and vice versa, the sections for the theory work are in Chapters 1 to 8 and the practical work in Chapters 9 to 13. The book has been split into Section 1 (Theory of computer science) and Section 2 (Practical problem-solving and programming) to follow the Cambridge International Examinations syllabus as closely as possible.
