  • Page 109: The Webnotes service closed in November of 2015. You may want to try the Chrome Bookmark Manger or Microsoft Office Sway.

  • In some editions, the Try It! on page 69 does not provide the correct answer. The correct question and answer are as follow:

    Which processing method is slowest?

    Serial Processing Answer: Correct! Serial processing is slowest because only one instruction is processed at a time.

    Pipelining answer: No, pipelining is faster than serial processing, but is not as fast as parallel processing.

Parallel processing answer: No, and if you have a good grasp of this concept, you understand that combining pipelining with parallel processing can lead to the best performance.
