Course Information: [Complete Syllabus] [Lecture and Reading Schedule, Assignments]

Supplemental readings are from Structured Computer Organization, Fifth Edition, by Andrew Tanenbaum (Prentice Hall, 2006). There will also be some readings and reference material from a previous edition of the Tanenbaum book. You are advised to purchase a copy of The C Programming Language, Second Edition, by Kernighan and Ritchie (Prentice Hall, 1988). Both of these are available through Water Street Books, but you are encouraged to seek better prices elsewhere, if you wish. You may also choose to share books (or ignore the text completely).
