Computer Organization and Design MIPS Edition, Fifth Edition: The Hardware/Software Interface (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Computer Architecture and Design) (Paperback)

1.0 out of 5 stars
This book is littered with typos. Do not purchase. Example: Page 238, Question 3.18 asks to divide 74 by 21 using unsigned 6-bit integers. Last I recall, the highest 6-bit unsigned integers can go is 64.

I'd stay away from this book as much as you can. I used this textbook for a course and even the professor has a strong disliking towards it. Do not buy.

Topic Title Summary Views
The content of this book is definitely good, but the digital packaging of it is utter crap. This book is designed as a textbook, and as such, when my professor refers to page numbers, I would expect to be able to simply go to the specified page.Except I can't. Because the digital version is just one long manuscript. One of my friends purchased the actual physical book, and not only does it have page numbers (as it should), the layout itself is both quite different and far superior.Bottom line, unless they fix the incredibly poor formatting of the digital version, get the physical one if you're using at as a textbook.
