    Micro Made Ridiculously simple! Hand's down the best book on Micro, and I am sure you will pass a shelf exam after reading it.

    Others at my school used MMRS and thought it was pretty good. I found it to be too long with too much reading, so I used Rapid Review. I found that to be nice and concise and something you can read in a day or two. So if MMRS doesn't float your boat, then maybe you can check out RR.
