MIPS Assembly Programming

"MIPS Assembly Programming" is a free book teaching MIPS assembly targeted primarily at college students taking classes that use MIPS and commonly use SPIM, QtSpim, or MARS simulators. It covers all the basics: data declaration, syscalls, branching, looping, the calling convention and recursive functions, even floating point numbers. It should make the programming portion of such classes much easier. It might also be helpful to those taking a similar class using RISC-V as it is very similar to MIPS and the general assembly programming concepts are universal.
