The book is in two parts: a the underlying structure of a computer, and b programming in a high level language and programming methodology. To understand the computer, the authors introduce the LC-3 and provide the LC-3 Simulator to give students hands-on access for testing what they learn.
To develop their understanding of programming and programming methodology, they use the C programming language. The book takes a "motivated" bottom-up approach, where the students first get exposed to the big picture and then start at the bottom and build their knowledge bottom-up.
Within each smaller unit, the same motivated bottom-up approach is followed. Every step of the way, students learn new things, building on what they already know. The authors feel that this approach encourages deeper understanding and downplays the need for memorizing. Students develop a greater breadth of understanding, since they see how the various parts of the computer fit together. Get A Copy.

I took the class but only touched on the bare basics 2 years ago. I then reread this book again because I felt like I didn't have a strong understanding of computer systems.
I was able to understand everything and it helped me immensely in the upper division classes I'm taking this year. I recommend this book to anyone who is self-teaching themselves because it also comes with solutions to the problems online. Sep 03, Lori rated it really liked it Shelves: technical. Ever wanted to know how your computer really works? This textbook is really easy to read and does a thorough job of moving from transistors to gates to memory to assembly to the C programming language!
The exercise questions are very challenging and will really make you think about how CPUs implement certain commands. This is a very enlightening book and it's probably the few textbooks I've read that I enjoyed reading.
Feb 18, Jake rated it it was amazing. I suggest finding a good digital logic book and working through that, skipping those chapters. After this the book comes into its own. Chapter 4, 5 13, 16 and appendix A are required for anyone learning about computer architecture in my opinion. This is a good self study text as it has a lot of breadth but not much depth, except in some things. The book attempts to teach computer programming from the hardware up and is quite ambitious.
The age of the text does show but the ideas are quite timeless. This is a good companion to patterson and hennessy computer organization text. Sep 14, Victoria rated it did not like it. This book is not helpful. The first chapter was great, but it went downhill after that. I find it hard to read because it is full of technical language. The LC-3 programs it shows aren't great examples either.
There must be something better than this. I don't know if it's due to the nature of the subject, but in any case, this book was surprisingly well-structured. What used to be magic to me has now been reduced to bits and pieces that I can actually understand. The LC-3 is fantastic toy and explanatory device; I'm glad they included it. It's is the most enjoyable textbook I've consumed. Philosophers should read this as a less controversial lesson in reductionism than neuroscience.
