    I don't know if I would actually sit and read it cover to cover. It appears very similar in content to the one we use at university for the network operating systems course, and is more for study and used as reference rather than a good read. It is in fact required for the operating systems element by the majority of degree and HND course in computing

    I would most likely read the book but it can only teach you so much and to have a machine that had one or both operating systems on it. because that is where you learn the most is by using the OS.
