From Publishers Weekly
Beaton's charming Constable Hamish Macbeth returns in the sequel to Death of a Gossip, a mirthful mystery set in the Scottish Highlands. Hamish's time is taken up with investigating a death at the Halburton-Smythe castle, and with subtly wooing the daughter of the house, Priscilla, who has brought her fiance Henry Withering to meet her parents and houseguests. Among them is Peter Bartlett, loathed by almost everyone present and found dead in the morning. The constable's inept superiors declare the death an accident, but Hamish produces evidence of murder, after which he eliminates all the suspects except the guilty one. In the course of these events, Priscilla's feelings for Henry weaken and, in contrast, flourish for Hamish, which gives hints of the next entry in the delightful series. Copyright 1987 Reed...

From Library Journal
A close relative of "distance learning," web-based training (WBT) offers a big advantage over its kin by allowing instructors to design with multiple media in an online environment so students can learn at their own pace and on their own time and still get help from almost any source that is connected to the net. This power comes at a cost; few actually understand how to integrate all of this media into an effective learning environment. Horton, president of William Horton Consulting and editor of The Web Page Design Cookbook, has written a book for the administrator and instructor trying to understand WBT at a very high level of thinkingAwhat it is, how to evaluate it, possible approaches and applications, organizing sequences, testing, collaborating, motivating, and the future. This is not, however, a technical...

Verification Methodology Manual for SystemVerilog
Janick Bergeron, et al
0387255389
September 28, 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Functional verification remains one of the single biggest challenges in the development of complex system-on-chip (SoC) devices. Despite the introduction of successive new technologies, the gap between design capability and verification confidence continues to widen. The biggest problem is that these diverse new technologies have led to a proliferation of verification point tools, most with their own languages and methodologies. Fortunately, a solution is at hand. SystemVerilog is a unified language that serves both design and verification engineers by including RTL design constructs, assertions and a rich set of verification constructs. SystemVerilog is an industry standard that is well supported by a wide range of verification tools and platforms. A single language fosters the development of a unified...
