ICT Computer Systems

I have loads more of these ICT PowerPoints to upload so keep a look out. They are simplified versions of everything you need to know for short course ICT (which is only half of the actual thing).

I have used the OCR specification sheet so it tells me what to put for what we need to know for the exam.

For full course it is 5.1, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 whereas short course is only the two 5.1 and 5.2.

So yeah... enjoy my pretties!!!!

(please rate me and leave a comment I want to know if it's good or not)
