    This information in this book is not really new or exciting. How computers actually work has not changed (in principal) much in the last 50 years. Most of the information can be found on the web. Save 30 dollars and buy the International Student Edition The Architecture of Computer Hardware and System Software: An Information Technology Approach. However, the exercises at the end of the chapter are not in the same order. For example, question 10.1 in this book is question 10.4 in the International Student Edition.

    This review is from: The Architecture of Computer Hardware, Systems Software, & Networking: An Information Technology Approach (Hardcover)

    I want to be clear that I’m coming from a strict engineering (electrical/computer) background so I am somewhat biased toward a more thorough mathematical treatment of concepts …

    Although this text is very comprehensive, covering a wide range of topics relating to computers: software, hardware, networking; the depth is very lacking. To make matters worse, I find some of the information presented to be somewhat misleading or at least lacking detail to the point of leaving out some key concepts. I have been able to squeeze a little bit of useful information from this text in an area or two in which I was not very familiar; however, I think it would be helpful for readers to know that the majority of the concepts presented in this text are learned by the majority of technically inclined people throughout high school and a technical undergraduate education (without the aid of a course and/or text that presents this material formally). Any supporting information necessary beyond that can be easily obtained online.

    I purchased the Kindle edition which will not load on my Kindle. It will open on my PC Kindle app only. That is because it is no more than a scanned in version. Can’t use table of contents to get anywhere because it is no more than a scan. So far the book seems to be written by someone who is a writer, not a true IT professional.
