The Third Edition maintains the "motivated" bottom-up approach, showing students how a computer works through access to a simulator and by giving them hands-on programming experience with the C language. The authors first introduce the underlying structure of a computer, and then build on that foundation to present programming methodology, as stated, using the C language. Every step of the way, students learn new things, building on what they already know. The authors feel that this approach encourages deeper understanding and downplays the need for memorizing. Students develop a greater breadth of understanding, since they see how the various parts of the computer fit together.
In an effort to further serve different course needs, teaching flexibility has been added to the Third Edition through additional examples and exercises, as well as new supplementary material related to topics such as C++ and computer organization.
