This book should be avalible at both the Bay Tree Bookstore and Slug Books.
The old CMPE012c Lab Manual, available online. Still useful for HC11 and for CMPE110 for MIPS assembly.
HC11 Manual: Free, courtesy of Freescale/Motorola. Pick up at BELS mid-way through the quarter.
Check the discussion forum and web page regularly. You are responsible for all announcements on the web page, in the discussion forum, and in class.
Here is the official class syllabus, you should print this out for your records. If changes are made they will be posted to the class forum and announced in class.
Suitable programming experience is a prerequisite to CMPE12 and the associated lab. We will be using C as a reference language; familiarity with C or C-like languages is assumed.

Exams and Grading Policy
See Note Set 01 - Introduction for detailed description.
You must pass the lab to pass the class.
That is, if you fail CMPE12L you will automatically fail CMPE12 (with a D grade).
