Hardcover Verified Purchase.
While this book seems thorough and informative, the editor of the book clearly missed quite a few errors. I bought this book as a textbook for one of my classes, and we are required to use many of these equations, and understand the concepts.
It is quite frustrating when the equations are incomplete, and I must go online to determine the complete equation. Not to mention, some of the exercise questions are also missing parts of the equations. The content of the book is excellent and the concepts are presented in a manner easy to understand, but the lack of proof-reading is a glaring mistake. I do not expect such sloppy and lazy editing to be present in a graduate-level textbook.
I had to get this book for a networking class. I have taken networking before and found this book completely unusable. This book is just a wall of text with an author that rambles on about useless information. Examples are poor, glossary is useless, no key terms highlighted. For me I found absolutely no use for this book other than to set my monitor on. Others may have liked it but not I.
I haven't finished the book yet, but I'd like to reassure potential buyers that the Kindle Edition is fine in that the diagrams are quite readable even with my small Kindle.
This has not always been the case for Kindle edition of other computer books. Now The fact that I bought this as a Kindle book has been a bit of a life-saver because I often take a bus and when I read it there, I increase the font size considerably. This way I dont get a headache from reading with the book shaking in front of my eyes. Now for the contents: It's quite good. It tends to have a semi-formal long rambling style rather than one little bit at a time and then exercises , which I would have preferred.
One thing I liked is that the author I wary of following the OSI model literally and working one's way up. Highly Recommended! This is an awesome work by the authors. The book presents the field of networking using a bottom up approach starting with physical layer all the way till application layer.
The concepts are presented with such clarity that the reader will feel that he has a very good understanding of the topic after reading it.
Lots of visuals are used in this book that aid in the learning process very well. Although I am done with this course, this book will stay in my shelf. Without a doubt, this is one of the best texts in Computer Science. I did not have any background in networking before reading this book and this book prepared me to tackle successfully some of the networking problems I faced recently at work. Well deserved kudos to the authors. I also had the fortune of a very good instructor for this course and it made it even more enjoyable.
The other book my instructor has recommended is Computer Networking A Top Down Approach by Kurose and Ross - we covered only one chapter in this book for lack of time but it also presents concepts in crystal clarity. Either of these two books will make a great starting point for beginners to networking field. Two thumbs up!!! Lots of equations and equations are not shown. Even the table number is wrong.
I cannot believe this!!!! Gives a very wordy overview of networking concepts with very little in the way of examples or mathematical analysis. This will be good for some professionals, but not great as a textbook. Also, I bought the hardcover edition and there are characters missing most notably and frustrating, some mathematical operators like multiplication.
How does something like that get printed? This book isn't great at explaining things. I feel like they go in circles in their explanations of topics. Also, to solve the practice problems you need to have five pages of the book open at once. I literally have 5 different bookmarks and have to flip back and forth between them to solve one practice problem. I feel like this book isn't structured well. One person found this helpful. Incredible book for those looking to learn more about the field of networking.
Covers every topic imaginable in an easy to understand yet still very in depth manner. See all 80 reviews. Amazon Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers.

This expanded and completely updated edition covers the why of network design, focusing not just the specifications comprising today's systems but how key technologies and protocols actually work in the real world to solve specific problems. It is the only introductory computer networking book written by authors who have had first-hand experience with many of the protocols discussed in the text, who have actually designed some of them as well, and who are still actively designing the computer networks today.
The book makes less use of computer code to explain protocols than earlier editions. Moreover, this new edition shifts the focus somewhat higher in the protocol stack where there is generally more innovative and exciting work going on at the application and session layers than at the link and physical layers.
Other new features are: Furthermore, the book outstrips the competitors in offering a more robust ancillary package for student and instructor support. The text is complemented with figures as well as links to networking resources on the Web and links to author-created materials on author-maintained Web site.
