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.
