About this item

Warford presents a step-by-step exposition of the central ideas in computer organization, assembly language, and computer architecture. The textbook is based largely on a virtual computer that he designed to teach the basic concepts of the classic von Neumann machine, he says, thus bypassing many irrelevant details that often bog down computer science courses. Seven parts of the textbook focus in turn (but not in order) on the seven levels of abstraction that computers operate at: application, high-order language, assembly, operating system, instruction set architecture, microcode, and logic gate. Throughout he emphasizes how the level impact each other and work together. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
