Mr. Filer's book is an excellent choice for anyone beginning to work with Allen-Bradley PLCs,SLCs. It does discuss many of the complex functions and capabilities of AB's PLCs, however, it does not go into enough depth to be an aid in "advanced programming".
The text is very good for someone with a basic programming background to learn PLC's and be able to program with these industrial CPU's. Although structured around the A-B family of devices, the methodology is general enough for anyone to learn PLC hardware/software and relate it to other formats of digital logic and computers. For computer science people who have never worked on industrial machines, this is a very good starting text.
The material covered in this book is great for an entry level class in PLC programming. This appears to be the intent of one of the authors (Robert Filer), having been instructed by him directly using this material.
