About the Book 

The Essentials of Computer Organization and Architecture, Second Edition is a one-semester text crafted in direct correspondence with the needs of every computer science major. The fundamentals of organization and architecture are presented so that students master critical topics, become familiar with important concepts, and have exposure to those topics for which only a brief introduction is necessary. Through a structured, yet integrated, approach, the authors explore a computing system beginning with low-level hardware and progressing to higher-level software. The text focuses on the function and design of the computing components necessary to digitally process information, and emphasizes the real-world application of organization and architecture concepts. Covering all topics outlined by the ACM and IEEE Computing Curricula 2001 for computer architecture, this text provides its readers with a strong basis for future study.
