3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad.
An ok book. Just could do with clearer explanations throughout. Ambiguities pervade most chapters. As a result is it useful to supplement with another book. Probably great if you have a lot of time on your hands but as a professional not always the case.....

An undergraduate student with the Open University, currently studying the new third-year honours course, "Software Systems and Their Development", I have found this book an invaluable addition to the set books recommended by the University.
It is eminently readable, yet contains a wealth of material, with excellent examples of the application of many of the principles it introduces.
A must for the serious student of modern-day computer systems.

Silberschatz is becoming established as THE author in this field. The difference is the application here, but makes the applications through Java and gives examples on new hardware and of new packages.
