Computer hardware/architecture

  1. Dec 25, 2013 #1
    Can anyone recommend a good book on computer hardware/architecture covering things like boolean algebra, logic gates, components etc? Principles of computer hardware by clements is too challenging. I am considering Fundamentals of computer by rajaraman. Thanks

    Also, how much electrical engineering knowledge is required? Most people have told me only basic circuits and components.

    Thanks for the quick response, but I had a friend who told me it is more focused on the software side of things - at which I am fairly adept.
