At the beginning, reading this book was a kind of suffer. I don't blame on the author, as the operating system itself is so hard to in teach. It was hard for me to follow the content as I had little knowledge about the operating system but I did familiar about C programming. This book was heavy so I wonder that's why the university uses this book. Haha!
Most examples in this book was programmed in C.
I am reading this book as the second time now, and started to follow the way in which the author of this book talked about the OS.
I thought the material was at the perfect level of detail for me, an application programmer. One of the most readable textbooks I've had in my four years as a computer science undergrad. Easy to understand and end-of-chapter summaries were a welcome addition.
The one bad thing I can say is that some examples are too general and do not convey the proper detail. This is just a minor distraction and does not take away from the book's overall effectiveness.
If you skim the book and sequentially dig in deeper and deeper at your own happy pace, it isn't too difficult to get the various (and many) terms.
However, I'm not sure if this book is simple enough to keep pace with a detailed course on the subject unless you're already familiar with the subject matter (I'm still early in my own course).
