Computer Systems: A Programmer's Perspective, 2nd Edition (Randal E. Bryant, et al)

There aren't many opportunities for computer science or computer engineering students to build their own computers. On the other hand, the majority of pupils will be expected to program and use computers almost daily.

By demonstrating how these notions impact the accuracy, effectiveness, and usefulness of application programs, this book explains the significant and enduring concepts that constitute the basis of computer systems. The text's practical approach—which includes a thorough set of labs—enables students to comprehend how a modern computer system actually works and equips them for further study of systems subjects like compilers, computer architecture, operating systems, and networking.
