The way the author writes it doesn't make sense.

Taking some entry level classes in Network Design for computers at a local technical college, this was the textbook selected, and available from the school website. But I always appreciate having the hard copy in my hand, that I can move quickly from one page to another distant or near page. The substance of the book fits the course fine. The explications are neat, concise, yet comprehensive. It feel that you can teach yourself by just reading it. Having access to a computer electronic lab and a live teacher, this textbook guarantees that you learn the subject well. The curve in my class is high.

This is good textbook, but not for light reading. The author covers several OSes and does a good job of explaining the history and why we have the features we have today.

5 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Oliver on June 10, 2012
Format: Hardcover
Both previous reviewers have got it wrong. While this book is conceptual, it also involves some code when it comes to explaining many things. For example, the semaphores part is completely practical.

Secondly, this book is incredible to help you learn about operating systems. The author does a great job in introducing every new concept, using images to explain himself, and the message is very clear. I highly recomend this book to any computer science student serious about learning how operating systems work. You will not regret this buy.

A useful book for understanding OS concepts. It's quite complete, and therefore, also very boring. It does everything it means to, and explains everything. That includes things that aren't necessarily new information.

The book, a required text for a class, is exactly what I was looking for. The format of the book (Kindle version) has been a bit disappointing. I love reading it on my Kindle Fire, but was disappointed that I can't read it on my Windows 8 laptop as well. I don't know if the Windows 8 app will eventually be able to use this book, but I hope that functionality is added.

This book is pretty good at explaining abstract concepts and how they related to real world situations. I am using this book for a college class.
