I'm in love with the subject matter and this book is well laid out. it might even handle the "well here's how Windows, Linux, etc. handle this issue..." than even the Silberschatz book. Though Silberschatz's book is pretty much the high water mark for the subject.
For a class.

Recommends it for: Students
I have translated this book into Persian and it will be on the market in May 2007. The book is useful for people who want to take the national entrance exam for graduate studies. It has a more numerical perspective to scheduling algorithms.

Quite good in getting your theories sorted out and make you more inquisitive in the delicacies of operating system. And if I remember correctly, this was part of syllabus in my curriculum.

It's a good book and I have many experiences with that and it's really helpful, but remember it's not enough for learning. you'll need to look at other books too. ...more

To be honest I had to read only the 5 chapters of the Part Four coupled with another book for an exam at the university. The style is clear as always for this author. The chapters on the RISC and the superscalar processors were quite tough. Anyway, very good manual.
