Operating System Concepts with Java, 8th Edition International Student Version

Abraham Silberschatz, Peter B. Galvin, Greg Gagne

ISBN: ES8-0-470-39879-1

Select type: WileyPLUS


Operating System Concepts with Java 8/e continues to evolve with emerging course needs and to provide a solid theoretical foundation for understanding operating systems.  The eighth edition has been updated to offer coverage of the most current topics and applications, improved conceptual coverage and additional content to bridge the gap between concepts and actual implementations. The new two-color design allows for easier navigation and supports student motivation. New end-of-chapter, exercises, review questions, and programming exercises help to further reinforce important concepts. WileyPLUS, including a test bank, self-check exercises, and a student solutions manual, is now part of the comprehensive support package. This version provides examples and problems in Java, a language that many undergraduates are more comfortable with than the C of the regular version.
