Shelves: computer-science A descriptive book, Computer Organization and Architecture, tenth edition, by William Stallings implemented a top-down approach for learning low-level aspects of traditional computers from vacuum tube architecture to the contemporary standard that is von Neumann architecture. There is a variety of information related to computer architecture in the relevant book by Stallings that challenges students so conceptual and applied knowledge is understood. Functioning similar to Thomas' Calculus with p A descriptive book, Computer Organization and Architecture, tenth edition, by William Stallings implemented a top-down approach for learning low-level aspects of traditional computers from vacuum tube architecture to the contemporary standard that is von Neumann architecture. Functioning similar to Thomas' Calculus with problems listed that go beyond the instruction provided within the textbook, the relevant Stallings text demands exploration to supplemental sources of information for knowledge that meets the specifications of chapter exercises consisting of review questions and problems. Sometimes, the concepts in this book are not very clearly explained.
Opcode Operand b. First, the CPU must make access memory to fetch the instruction. The instruction contains the address of the data we want to load.
During the execute phase accesses memory to load the data value located at that address for a total of two trips to memory. The CPU then asserts the Read control line to memory and places the address on the address bus. Memory places the contents of the memory location passed on the data bus. This data is then transferred to the MBR. The CPU then asserts the Write control line to memory and places the address on the address bus and the data on the data bus.
Memory transfers the data on the data bus into the corresponding memory location. When an address is presented to a memory module, there is some time delay before the read or write operation can be performed. While this is happening, an address can be presented to the other module. For a series of requests for successive words, the maximum rate is doubled.
A system is only as fast as its slowest link. In recent years, the bottlenecks have been the performance of memory modules and bus speed. Different systems are not comparable on clock speed.
Other factors such as the system components memory, buses, architecture and the instruction sets must also be taken into account.
A more accurate measure is to run both systems on a benchmark. Benchmark programs exist for certain tasks, such as running office applications, performing floating-point operations, graphics operations, and so on. However, the material is impossible.
The reading is dense, and it's difficult to even understand what the book is trying to teach. I get that computer structure and architecture are difficult topics, but this book does absolutely nothing to provide a strong basis for learning these topics.
The questions after each chapter are completely impossible; you would expect for the questions to have something to do with the reading in the chapter - at the very least you should be able to go back and look through the chapter to search for relevant information or formulas - but they don't. As a senior year CS student, this book has been nothing but the bane of my existence and a waste of money.
Paperback Verified download. This book has the potential to be brilliant, but instead choses to have a weird formatting that makes understanding simple concepts incredibly difficult. Using the index to find terms is also sometimes impossible. Sections are strangely missing from it despite taking up considerable chunks of their respective chapters.
One person found this helpful. Its textbook for me and honestly it is bit difficult to follow. But here is the fun part, don't you have to know little bit about what you are reading at your Masters or PhD level?
If you are bit rusty then get binary, gates or a cure for all "Tanenbaum" will do! I will not go to nuts and bolts because I don't write review that much and try to pay my debt finally.
You will enjoy it if you want to learn it what you don't know already. I started reading and studying this book. It has good content, it's worth the investment.
However, this cheaper version is not good because the content is in black, white and gray, as if it were copy of the original. I prefer colorful books, content with graphics, photos, etc. Yes, I recommend this book, but not in this cheap version, better the original version. Kindle Edition Verified download.
Too technical. Not for beginners or novice readers. This book is pretty awful. The material is not very well structured, and often times infers more about the readers knowledge of electrical engineering than is probably suitable being that the author is fully aware what this book is being marketed as a text for introductory hardware organization and architecture.
I read this book, page by page, and really gain very little. It's easier to just watch YouTube videos on the topics referenced in the text, then try and follow the logic no pun intended the author lays out for the reader to grasp. I bought this book instead of renting it because I figured it would be a good reference down the road, and I am regretting having done that. The online materials are not helpful either.
No videos, no step-by-step walkthroughs; just a bunch of fluff. Pearson has no business selling this to Universities who plan on teaching introductory CS hardware courses with it. Only reason I am giving it two stars is because Great book. See all 25 reviews. What other items do customers download after viewing this item? Themes and Variations Kindle Edition. Alan Clements.
