"Why use my own set of notes when there are over a dozen textbooks on this subject? Just ask anyone who has had to learn this material from one of the existing texts :-). Seriously, though, existing texts fall into two categories: those written by computer architects and those written by programmers.

The problem with any text written by an computer architect is that the text is essentially a computer architecture textbook. Machine organization is not computer architecture. It is a small subset of computer architecture. A machine organization course should cover those architectural features of immediate importance to three types of programmers: those who need to write fast and/or short code, those who write compilers (who need to write programs that write short and fast code), and those who will actually spend part of their lifetimes writing assembly language code for a living (a much bigger number than academians will admit)."
