I bought this book to give me a bit of background for the specifics of writing C for the HCS and Coldfire, however I found most of the C code examples to contain a load of assembler commands. The author uses the "ASM()" function and then inserts a load of assembler into the C program. Not quite what I was hoping for!

All in all, not a bad book if you want a reference for the HCS12 and want to write assembler, although I wouldn't say it's the clearest ever. If you are expecting much useful C, buy something else or look at any of the numerous hobby sites on the net for basic examples to get you started.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book 19 April 2010
By ProfessorX - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've used this text for the past three years in my undergraduate Microprocessors course (lecture plus lab) and I highly recommend it. As a previous reviewer noted, there are a few mistakes, but these are quite minor and in no way detract from the usability of this text. The chapters are organized well, flow nicely from topic to topic, and keep the reader's attention without being wordy or repetitive. There are lots of examples and many of them include both an assembly and a C solution for the reader. This text is especially good if you're using CodeWarrior and any of the HC12-based boards from Axiom, but would work well with other HC12 boards or student learning kits.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good practical but a few mistakes 5 Feb. 2010
By Thomas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am an engineering major at Florida State this text book gives good information about how the microcontroller works, how fast it is, where the memory is at, basically the memorization and put on a piece of paper and pass a test class; however, as for practical the examples it gives I find are not very good, The book has examples that are incomplete and in lab it is hard to follow along.

Update, after review other books about this I actually have to give it another star, yes there are some mistakes but it is a 2nd edition and of course there will be mistakes because we are only human. It take a little bit of reading and actual reading not skimming through it like a novel to find out who killed who because it will be used later on so you may want to actually pay attention. I actually enjoyed the last class that I had even though I only made a C. I am about to hopefully take another class using this book so hopefully I will remake another update after this one.
