One thought on “IST424: Hardware & Operating Systems

  1. I took this class in spring 2009. The class was so interesting because I learned a lot of things that I did not know about Hardware and Operating Systems. Also, the professor kept it simple and he made the class enjoyable to everyone. He is one of the best professors that I ever had, but you have to do what he asks you to do. I suggest taking this class with Dr. Doane.
