11 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Charles Ashbacher HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on September 8, 2008
Format: Paperback
As the regular teacher of an operating systems class for computer science majors, I have evaluated many potential textbooks. This book ranks up among the top tier of books that could be used in the class. The coverage is complete, both in breadth and suitable depth. Diagrams are extensively used; there is coverage of how networking is incorporated into the actions of operating systems and specific details regarding Unix, MS-DOS, Windows operating systems and Linux are included. The text is understandable, easily readable and well organized.
There are three sets of exercises at the end of the chapters: research topics, exercises and advanced exercises. Unfortunately, no solutions to any of them are included. For the first time in several years, I am not teaching operating systems this fall. Therefore, it was not necessary for me to select a text. If that were not the case, this book would certainly have been among my top two or three candidates.

This book has general info like several other types, like I used in school. It is a re-read for me but in my opinion laid out better than most school books.

The book got here in decent time; however, there are a bunch of stuff highlighted and circled and underlined in pencil. It's pretty good other than all of the writing that is in it.
