For undergraduate courses in assembly language programming and introductory courses in computer systems and computer architecture. Written specifically for the Intel/Windows/DOS platform, this complete and fully updated study of assembly language teaches students to write and debug programs at the machine level. Based on the Intel processor family, the text simplifies and demystifies concepts that students need to grasp before they can go on to more advanced computer architecture and operating systems courses. Students put theory into practice through writing software at the machine level, creating a memorable experience that gives them the confidence to work in any OS/machine-oriented environment. Proficiency in one other programming language, preferably Java, C, or C++, is recommended. The 5th edition is available with an optional value-pack containing containing Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Express under isbn: 0132304686. Students and lab managers will be able to download MASM 8.0 from the book page at or on the Microsoft Web site (part of the Windows Vista SDK). my Web site that explain how to set things up.
