Schaum's Outline of Operating Systems
Publication Date 1 Jan 2002
OverviewSchaum's Outline of Operating Systems is intended for use as a problem-solved approach text in courses taken in the second and third years in Computer Science, and as graduate course review. This book covers the fundamental design principles common in modern operating systems, including UNIX and DOS. The emphasis is on the system principles in abstract, not how they are implemented in any one particular operating system. It is designed to supplement to traditional operating system courses and can be used by professionals familiar with a particular operating system who desires knowledge of the abstract principles underlying that operating system. This Outline will make an excellent package supplement to Irwin's forthcoming Operating Systems: A Spiral Approach, by Ramez El Masri, due out in 2001.
