1.0 out of 5 stars Frustrating Errors, Dec 1 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: A Programmer's View of Computer Architecture: With Assembly Language Examples from the MIPS RISC Architecture (Hardcover)
Having taken the class at UW-Madison for which this book was written, and my instructor being Karen Miller (one of the authors), even she admitted to the great number of errors. It is highly frustrating to open the book read something, and then wonder, "Gee, is this correct?" Constantly referring to Karen's list of webpage errors was frustrating. Chapter 9 was completely re-written and made available to us in PDF format because the book's version was poor.
I'm shocked that the university is still using the text. Though it was only slightly easier to follow the material since the author was also my instructor, she also seemed annoyed that through some departmental/political/publishing snafu that they are still using the text 10yrs later.
Avoid this book if you have a choice.
