Very informative, exactly what I needed to understand MS-DOS a lot better for my classes. I am going to recommend this to classmates and show to my teacher for further consultation.

I have not read the whole book, but looking just at the section on MODE as applied to serial ports, it does not nearly contain all of the options available under modern (my version is 6.1.7601) versions of cmd.exe
