Operating System Concepts Essentials

By staying current, remaining relevant, and adapting to emerging course needs, Operating System Concepts by Abraham Silberschatz, Peter Baer Galvin and Greg Gagne has defined the operating systems course through nine editions. This second edition of the Essentials version is based on the recent ninth edition of the original text.  Operating System Concepts Essentials comprises a subset of chapters of the ninth edition for professors who want a shorter text and do not cover all the topics in the ninth edition.           The new second edition of Essentials will be available as an ebook at a very attractive price for students.  The ebook will have live links for the bibliography, cross-references between sections and chapters where appropriate, and new chapter review questions.  A two-color printed version is also available.

Very succinct book for early learners like myself (neophytes as my teacher calls us). There is the full linux kernel development book in its fifth edition, but that can be dense and frustrating for beginners. This Operating System Concepts Essentials has a great accompanying website with lots of great code examples and various resources that are very helpful.

I bought this book for the one of computer science classes.At the beginning, reading this book was a kind of suffer. I don't blame on the author, as the operating system itself is so hard to in teach. It was hard for me to follow the content as I had little knowledge about the operating system but I did familiar about C programming. This book was heavy so I wonder that's why the university uses this book. Haha!Most examples in this book was programmed in C.I am reading this book as the second time now, and started to follow the way in which the author of this book talked about the OS.

Good condition.But I dropped this class.;)

It was as I expected.
