Operating System Concepts, 10th Edition May 4, 2018
The tenth edition of Operating System Concepts has been revised to keep it fresh and up-to-date with contemporary examples of how operating systems function, as well as enhanced interactive elements to improve learning and the student’s experience with the material. It combines instruction on concepts with real-world applications so that students can understand the practical usage of the content. End-of-chapter problems, exercises, review questions, and programming exercises help to further reinforce important concepts. New interactive self-assessment problems are provided throughout the text to help students monitor their level of understanding and progress. A Linux virtual machine (including C and Java source code and development tools) allows students to complete programming exercises that help them engage further with the material.

Database System Concepts Feb 19, 2019
Database System Concepts by Silberschatz Korth and Sudarshan is now in its 6th edition and is one of the cornerstone texts of database education. It presents the fundamental concepts of database management in an intuitive manner geared toward allowing students to begin working with databases as quickly as possible.The text is designed for a first course in databases at the junior/senior undergraduate level or the first year graduate level. It also contains additional material that can be used as supplements or as introductory material for an advanced course. Because the authors present concepts as intuitive descriptions a familiarity with basic data structures computer organization and a high-level programming language are the only prerequisites. Important theoretical results are covered but formal proofs are omitted. In place of proofs figures and examples are used to suggest why a result is true.
By staying current, remaining relevant, and adapting to emerging course needs, Operating System Concepts by Abraham Silberschatz, Peter Baer Galvin and Greg Gagne has defined the operating systems course through nine editions. This second edition of the Essentials version is based on the recent ninth edition of the original text. Operating System Concepts Essentials comprises a subset of chapters of the ninth edition for professors who want a shorter text and do not cover all the topics in the ninth edition. The new second edition of Essentials will be available as an ebook at a very attractive price for students. The ebook will have live links for the bibliography, cross-references between sections and chapters where appropriate, and new chapter review questions. A two-color printed version is also available.
