Some recommended (not required) books on Operating Systems:

No specific text on operating systems is required for this unit. There are a number of very well respected operating system textbooks and authors, and reading relevant sections from any of these texts will certainly benefit your understanding of operating systems. While this page lists the most recent editions of some textbooks, and these editions have the advantage of being the most up-to-date and having past errors corrected, past editions of these texts (up to 5-8 years old), found in libraries or purchased second-hand, will be very suitable.

You may like to read a review of any book you are considering. Online bookstores, such as Amazon, also include many reviews by their customers.
