4.0 out of 5 stars Good but very quick
This is exactly what other reviewers said, a good overview of things. Good content and I think its just what I needed.

However I felt it went through things very quickly and you had to expand on them very quickly before even practising. For this reason only four stars, you need to pace yourself and go back through bits you don't know before moving too far.

1.0 out of 5 stars Computer Systems Architecture
This is a very slim volume, and as such can only provide a very shallow overview of the subject. Do NOT rely on this book to get you through your Computer Systems Architecture module(Use it as a primer if you really have no clue about the subject).

This is a very slim volume, and as such can only provide a very shallow overview of the subject. Do NOT rely on this book to get you through your Computer Systems Architecture module(Use it as a primer if you really have no clue about the subject).
The diagrams are pixellated and amateur, and the notation used for boolean algebra changes from page to page as each author pens their pages.
It's slim and does not appear to have been professionally typeset or proofread.
However, I have had the pleasure of being lectured to by two of the authors, and they are extremely knowledgeable and capable. The small amount of information you can glean from this book is correct and insightful.
There are better books on this subject out there.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great introduction, 16 July 2004
This was one of the books on my uni list and I bought it partly because it was cheaper than some of the others. It was really easy to read and has good questions and answers at the end of chapters. If you want to go into any of the topics in depth then you will have to get a bigger book, but I would recommend this book to anyone as a good starting point and a clear intro to the subject.
