>[looking for texts for a RISC assembler programming course]
Try using two books... The first book can should be for high level
descriptions of RISC architecture issues. Some good ones are
"Computer Architecture" by Henessy and Patterson.
"Computer Organization" by Hamacher, Vransec & Zachy (sp?)
"Superscalar Microprocessor Design" by Mike Johnson.
Then try going directly to the Manufacturer's Architecture Reference
Manual. Personally, I think that it is of great value for students to
learn an architecture from a reference manual (as opposed to a text book).
Textbooks tend to hold hands a little bit too much.
