Operating Instructions: A Journal of My Son's First Year
The BEST book to read post partum
This is the funniest book and if you read it while your pumping milk, it will relax you because you'll be laughing...and what she describes will have just happened to you! It got me thru those first difficult months of post partum. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Operating System Concepts
Peter B. Galvin
A must read if you are a serious Software Engineer
I used this book on my OS class in my MS in CS. I remember that back in college, I took OS with an older version of the same book, but now my perspective change drastically. I you really want to take advantage of how an OS works and the techniques for managing resources and to apply this knowledge to your own programs, please read this book. If you like advanced topics such as multi-threading ...
Operating System Concepts, Seventh Edition
Peter Baer Galvin
John Wiley & Sons
Operating System Concepts
Great read. Anyone who wants to dive into the basics of kernel programming should read this book. There is a good set of practice problems, but personally I found the writing done well enough so that I did not need the extra practice. In addition, the writers have a sense of humor and make the reading fun, rather than a listing of computer facts like other books. Good book.
Operating System Concepts with Java
Peter B. Galvin
Great product, great price and great service " too good to be true", but it is.
Pocket Guide to the Operating Room (Pocket Guide to Operating Room)
Maxine A. Goldman
F A Davis Co
I use this book everyday
Having just graduated from school and entering the OR for the first time, I can attest that this is by far one of the best quick-reference texts I've owned yet! I use it every time I have questions on how a surgical procedure is carried out; it includes the surgical goal, equipment and instrumentation necessary, and special considerations for each and every kind of procedure in the book. This ...
Operating Systems: A Systematic View (6th Edition)
William S. Davis
Very well written.
However, one should have some basic understandings before start reading this book. You can learn everything about the main types operating systems from it .
The ARRL Operating Manual For Radio Amateurs (Arrl Operating Manual)
Mark J. Wilson
Amer Radio Relay League
Valuable information for new and old hams
Are you new to ham radio? This is the best book to learn about the many things you can do in the hobby. Even old hams will learn a thing or two.
Modern Operating Systems (3rd Edition)
Andrew S. Tanenbaum
Interesting, accessible, humorous
This book was assigned for my Operating Systems course in college this semester. It is truly a great textbook, and this is coming from a student who has read (and avoided) a lot of textbooks. It makes the subject matter very easy to understand in a variety of ways that help illustrate the concepts for various types of learners. Among these are clear diagrams, very succinct snippets of ...
Guide to Operating Systems, Enhanced Edition
I only got this book for my OS class. It's academic book after all. It did the job well!
Standard Operating Procedure
Penguin Press HC, The
An Important Book To Read and Digest
While the general public in this country is somewhat knowledgeable of the prolonged agonies of the ongoing Iraq War, few of us are as acutely aware of the dark cloud of atrocities accompanying that war. Information about the 'progress' and purpose of that war are parceled out by the somewhat restricted media, the more serious and sad aspects of what is actually happening are scrutinized before ...
Survey of Operating Systems (Mike Meyers' Computer Skills)
Excellent add on for the A+ study guide.
Looking for the A+ certification? As you know this certification has 2 exams, I for hardware and 1 for the Operating systems. This book is a great prep tool for the OS section as it covers several key operating systems and few that aren't on the exam. The book starts off with a hardware overview, which is very helpful in the understanding of software. Then you deal with the older operating ...
Learning the UNIX Operating System, Fifth Edition
Excellent Beginner Book!
I didn't know anything about Unix at all. After reading the reviews here, I decided on this book. It's for beginners like me. After finishing the book and practicing the exercises, I believe that I'm ready to go to the next level. And I didn't need any over-priced DVDs to go with it (and neither do you!)
Operating Systems (3rd Edition)
great OS book
This books picks up examples from real operating systems.. the conslusions at the end of every chapter make sense to anybody who has actually written code for an OS rather than one of those books that pontificate about how it is supposed to be.
Design of the UNIX Operating System
Maurice J. Bach
A model for how technical books should be written
Maurice Bach's The Design of the Unix Operating System still holds the place of honor on my technical reference bookshelf. After almost 20 years, it provides a clear overview of basic Unix organization and operations and is a model for how technical books should be written. Readers who complain that the text is dated evidently did not bother to notice the 1986 copyright date. Its age, however, ...
Understanding Operating Systems
Ida M. Flynn
I ordered this book and received it in 2 days. It arrived in excellent condition and I am very satisfied.
Operating Systems Design and Implementation (3rd Edition)
Andrew S Tanenbaum
Albert S Woodhull
A truly brilliant work of a Master piece
Many people who are commenting on the book by Tanenbaum are people who are writing after the year 2000. Operating system developed has had a long history since 1970 when Unix was developed. After that there was no significant movement on the Unix like systems (of course Microsoft and Apple were working) on their own OS but there were not Unix like. Tanenbaum wrote a Unix like System in ...
The Design and Implementation of the 4.4 BSD Operating System
Marshall Kirk McKusick
Great book on BSD 4.4, but make sure you've read Bach first
While this book has been written by some of the best in the UNIX arena, their strong focus on packing a lot of content into these pages at times can prove a burden to the reader. Reading through the chapters, it appears that the book could have been rendered more readable if a knowledgeable technical editor had put the finishing touches on it. Nevertheless, even though it takes a bit of time to ...
Berry & Kohn's Operating Room Technique
Nancymarie Phillips RN BSN BA MEd RNFA Doctoral Candidate CNOR
Most comprehensive Operating Room text there is.
I used Berry & Kohn's Operating Room Technique in nursing school 26 years ago and it is STILL the best text there is about perioperative nursing. This text ranges from basic Aseptic Technique to the more complex surgical procedures. Positioning, procedures, and practice guides make this a must have for anyone in the field of surgery, whether they are a surgical tech, an RN, or an educator. I use ...
The Baby Owner's Manual: Operating Instructions, Trouble-Shooting Tips, and Advice on First-Year Maintenance
amusing read, good instructions
I was looking for a "reference how-to manual" instead of baby books that are meant to be read cover to cover. I'm an avid reader, but I'd rather have instructions I can reference instead of having to try and remember everything. As a first time father, there's a lot of information out there and it's overwhelming. This book was quite well written in a humourous way, and takes care of all of the ...
