Alternative text to this one?

  1. Aug 16, 2010 #1
    Hey guys I'm not sure if this is the appropriate forum (hopefully it is), but this fall I'm taking a course titled Logic Design of Digital Systems and I recently acquired the textbook so I could get a headstart, but the problem is I can't make heads or tails of this text. I checked the amazon reviews and apparently I'm not the only one who feels that this book is overly complicated.

    Anyways, what I was wondering is if you guys could help recommend an alternate book to help me self-learn this material because although my text book assumes that we have NO knowledge of anything except introductory physics and calculus, it dives right into "combinational systems" and a bunch of other topics which seem greek to me. (and binary isn't even explained!)

    Sorry, the text book is called: Introduction to Digital Systems by Ercegovac, and I would really appreciate it if you guys could recommend me another book to read / study from in the mean time because I can't seem to wrap my head around this without assistance

    Thanks

    Well I googled up that book... $170 from Amazon, bad reviews and all, #$#%#! you must really want to learn that stuff...

    I don't know what level you are starting from, or what's actually in the text book, but my second google result was for this:
    http://inst.eecs.berkeley.edu/~ee100/su07/handouts/IntroductionToDigitalSystems.pdf
    which seems to be a pretty nice introduction to the Introduction. Hope it helps...
