Essentials of Computer Organization and Architecture
Please try again later. I can’t believe my class required it. This book is terrible. Multiple times in a chapter Organizatlon will have the textbook reference something like “See figure 6.
A typo here and there or grammatical issues is one thing, but pointing students to non existent figures while requiring them to solve problems that need referencing of those figures is unforgivable. This is easily the worst textbook I’ve used in my university career. I’m afraid I have to agree with most of the reviewers here: Unfortunately, it’s required for my class. In order to actually understand most of the subject matter, I have to constantly refer to other books, Conputer videos, Google searches, and homework help services.
It seems the authors are trying to cram too much information into one book, with the result that they are covering all of the information very badly. My recommendation would be to cut down on the variety of information presented and cover cmputer topics well. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Using this book for a graduate course. As other reviewers have stated its a really rough read and at times difficult to follow. Agree with others that this book needs to be better edited for content and clarity.
Would not recommend as a reference book. One person found this helpful. I personally liked this text. It is not perfect, and some sections should be more elaborated, but otherwise it is rather informative.
Covers boolean algebra, logic gates, memory organization, and many other good things. It can’t be read quickly. You will have to spend time to read carefully. In my life I have encountered text where there were NO way questions could be answered based solely on the info in the text.
So, if you getting this text for class, it is good news. I feel that some sections could be elaborated more with further examples. For instance binary divisions and multiplications would be better with couple more examples.
I feel like I didn’t waste time reading it, so you architectuge could learn something from it unless of course you already know the subject well Probably the second worst book I have ever come across in my entire life. Know that if the book is required, you will be using other sources to actually learn the material to do the homework.
This orfanization is ok, but sometimes does not do a great job at more detailed explanations. It architecfure to really organiization be meant for introductions into the topics where when the student gets to class, the professor goes into more detail.
Honestly after mid-terms I stopped reading it but it is a good reference and the MARIE language developed by the authors is really useful to introduce students to assembly type languages. Thorough, well-written, highly technical textbook. Presented the detailed information I was looking for with a lot of helpful examples and diagrams.
Really not sure why it’s nul such poor reviews here. Sure, some of the information is complicated and dry — but that’s the nature of the subject matter. I would give it a five star if it’s a book from Wikibooks.
Lots of overly detailed facts, ofganization information, mediocre but acceptable formatting, and excessive citations – everything you would expect from a community sourced textbook. But this is a published textbook with a price tag of over dollars. And only minutes into architeecture the book, I got terribly frustrated.
Some of the problems the book has, which I’ve discovered after reading the first chapter, are as follows: The book uses very low quality images. On Page 9, there is even a picture taken from Wikipedia! Being printed in black and white, it is near impossible to see what’s actually on the picture.
It is a photo of a motherboard with blurry annotations that you cannot read. Architecutre on Page 27, there is a picture that seemed taken by a cellphone camera. What’s bothering me is that the book actually uses professional illustrations as well. Why do they allow low quality images to be used achitecture they have access to professional artists, who could easily draw a much better illustration than a low resolution photo.
The typography of this book is rather bad. If they could use a smaller font size that most college-level textbooks would use, the near page book would probably be only half as thick. The formatting is so minimal that you will have no idea if you are reading a new section or just a sub-section.
Important concepts are not highlighted properly, anc random words are put in bold for no apparent reasons. It seems that whoever wrote the exercise questions did not read the book at all.
Questions are irrelevant to what’s covered in the chapter, and sometimes require you to Google the answer – the book just mentions nothing about what the question’s asking. Also it seems that whoever wrote the answers for the exercise questions did not read the questions at all. The answer to exercise 8 in Chapter 1 seems just plain wrong.
However, it is a solid book – it holds my coffee mug without deformation, even after hours of use. See all 89 reviews. What other items architecyure customers buy after viewing this item?
