The Parallax "Propeller Education Kit Lab Fundamentals" is a well written instructional guide for both at-home and institutional learning about this powerful microcontroller.
The Parallax Propeller is an amazing chip developed in-house at Parallax. They've gone to great lengths to create a microcontroller that offers impressive parallel processing performance, and this guide works well in guiding a new user through the ins-and-outs of the chip.
Written in a lab-workbook style, each chapter comes with study modules, experiments, and labs (with answer key!) that make it very straightforward to work through making a Propeller do your biding.
Written for college and university electronics, robotics, microcontroller, and senior design courses, this text is also a valuable resource for hobbyists with previous microcontroller experience who want to explore the Propeller chip.
