Abstract

A study survey is used to investigate the computer attitudes of 238 business students attending a major university in Saudi Arabia. The findings show that computer experience, degree of access, and computer ownership have a significant effect on computer anxiety, computer confidence, computer liking, computer usefulness, and overall computer attitude. Age and class standing do not appear to be related to any of the computer attitude scales. The number of computer-using courses strongly affects computer confidence, usefulness, and overall attitude, but weakly affects computer anxiety and liking. The student Grade Point Average is associated with computer confidence, and overall attitude, but not with computer anxiety, liking, or usefulness.
