Operating System Concepts Essentials

Operating System Concepts Essentials (EHEP001824) cover image
By staying current, remaining relevant, and adapting to emerging course needs, Operating Systems Concepts by Abraham Silberschatz, Peter Baer Galvin and Greg Gagne has defined the operating systems course through eight editions. A new Essentials version from this award winning team will soon be available and we invite you to consider it for your students.

Based on the bestselling 8th edition, Operating System Concepts Essentials provides readers with a streamlined text that focuses on the core concepts that underlie contemporary operating systems. It has been designed to reflect a typical undergraduate course syllabus in operating systems but offers an alternative format to enable students to grasp the essential features of a modern operating system more easily and more quickly.
