    The best writer in this subject. William Stalling, you are my officially my MASTER.

    It has been 25 years since I used this textbook in university. It took me over a week to re-read the 8th edition of this standard textbook (admittedly I skipped some of the technical sections), but at over 815 pages, it is still quite formidable. I like the broad coverage of a range of architectures from mobile ARM to Mainframe. The ARM world is new to me, and I don't quite understand some of the design decisions, it just appears less attractive.

The ARM world is new to me, and I don't quite understand some of the design decisions, it just appears less attractive. The new multithreaded, multiprocessor architectures were also new, but what was a big relevation was the importance of cache memory in the memory hierarchy, I don't recall that as being so crucial back then, perhaps because there wasn't that much memory to go around anyways. I enjoyed the re-read, it is definitely better than a journalist's account of the history of computing.

    Hard to read or understand if you have no back ground about the topic

    This book is the best book I came across for Computer System Organization and I loved it. There are some good points about this book that I liked: 1. Extremely easy to understand. 2. Cover mostly all the topics. 3. The construct of this book is all good, I mean the way writer presented all the topics. 4. The content is also good. So, this book is something I'll recommend to every Computer Science student. A must have!

    I can't bring myself to like this book. It's good in that it does cover many topics related to computer architecture, and its internal instructions. Very detailed stuff and can be very informative as a primer. The reason why I can't like it is because it's written in a boring manner.

    a good book but not the best, I think Hennesy Patterson is better.

    Si no se posee conocimientos anteriores, o sea, cierto background, hay partes que son complejas de asimilar. Si ese ese le caso. Es recomendable empezar con el Apéndice A que es básicamente las primeras unidades de muchos programas de la materia "Arquitectura de computadoras". La lectura es un poco árida, pero toma todos los tópicos relativos a la arquitectura de una computadora: Buses, Memoria interna, externa, ALU, Control Unit, etcétera. Es bibliografía obligatoria en muchas facultades. No impo Si no se posee conocimientos anteriores, o sea, cierto background, hay partes que son complejas de asimilar. Si ese ese le caso.

    came through most of its chapters and it was really interesting to me to uncover the magic that laying underneath that large green PCB which we call it "computer" ... well explained algorithms and techs was provided , but though rookies -just like me- could use little more clarity..

    This is one of the best book on this topic and, clearly, not for anybody. You should have a certain background in computer science or similar, otherwise it will be hard. I really liked the parts on the concurrency and the scheduling, the Memory management part was quite tough instead.

    Dry as a bone but such a great insight into how computers work at a low level.

    A great book if you've got a basic background about logic design.

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 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.

    Some aspects of the book are undoubtedly verbose in terms of explaining the same thing over and over. Sometimes, the concepts in this book are not very clearly explained. I think a concise explanation should content the reader. Moreover, some depictions of concepts showed incorrect and sometimes unrepresentative diagrams. Other than that, I am really satisfied with the amount of information the book provides.

    Does a good job with explaining computer organization and handling CISC and RISC. Definitely did a better job of explaining everything compared to the professor that taught the class I took. I'd say the biggest issue would be some of the end of chapter questions as some seem to be pretty vague.
