The material is very well presented. Starting with a study guide in each chapter helps students reevaluate whether they have learned the material. Programmed exercises guide the student in solving the initial problems in each chapter.
I like the way that VHDL is introduced at Chapter 10 (just after the combinational logic) and Chapter 17 (just before the sequential logic). For a first course in logic design, I like the briefness of the chapters. It places the presented materials in focus.
