4.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive Networking text 30 April 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had got behind with networking technology and wanted to get back upto speed so that we could make use of the new superfast 11n broadband as it has just become available in our area. This book told me all I wanted to know and was espechially good at showing how to secure WiFi networks. My only problem was finding what I wanted to know but as it is a big book covering everything to do with every sort of network I suppose this was to be expected. However, if you want to know anything about networks this book pretty much covers it as it is today (April 2011). These books tend to go out of date quite quickly as technology moves on so check the publication date when buying any computer book / manual as technology does not stand still for long. Generally a good book trying to do everything which it just about achieves but be prepared to do some digging to find what you want!

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 5 Jan. 2011
Being a network novice i found this book to be invaluable in my understanding of the many key terms linked with the topic. It even gave me a little more enthusiasm for the subject, after i had grown to hate it. A very worthwhile buy for someone who is new to networks or just wants some more information, this book covers a lot of topics.

As with the whole series of these books, they are an easy read and very informative.
