I have read several books on TCP/IP but just did not get the sort of break down into a simpler format as this book TCP/IP in 24 hours gives. It then goes into explaining the OSI stack from each level to the next and what part each level plays in the flow of datagrams or packages as its commomly known as. The author has a way of explaining this complex subject to the extent that the reader can't wait to read the next hour. It would be fair to say that this book caters for everyone as it does'nt bombard the reader with too much technical jargon that would leave the reader more confused than they were even before reading the book.
Even the subject on binary and subnetting is enough to give this book a five star and the price tag is fantastic. I'd definately recommend this book to anyone with or without prior knowledge on TCP/IP. Lastly, am sure after reading this book you would'nt have any problems classifying a class A network from a class B network or even a class C network. Happy reading, but do try and get some hands on practice even at home tweakly with your PC as this would make more sense as to what is what.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good beginner book 28 May 2001
By A Customer
Quite simply, this book is great for people who want to learn the basics of TCP/IP. Some of the guides in this book are for Windows NT, but the same techniques could be implemented on a Linux or *nix platform (and others) just as easily.
Or, if you just want to understand how TCP/IP networks work, pick up this. After reading this book you may want to read a book on network security, so as to secure your network from unethical hackers, script kiddies etc. Although this book isn't all that big, and teaches the basics of it all, it is essentially telling the reader all he needs to know about the subject.

Bought it, read it, and understood it in a week. It's not for Network administrators, but it's certainly for anyone in the IT business who needs the basics. It's a great read if you've got the slightest interest in how the Internet and networking works.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice and easy to understand 19 July 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
All in all a pretty good book for a grounding in TCP/IP. I qualified as an MCSE in NT 3.51 then upgraded to 4.0 (also CNE in 3.11 and upgrade to 4). This was all some time ago and i have been away from the technical side for a few years and the little time i have spent recently i had managed to largely avoid it. Well now i am back full time on the technical side and was very aware that everything is based on TCP/IP these days and i needed to know about it. This book gave me a grounding to the level i need in a simple and concise way. Anyone who wants to learn about TCP/IP from a base level should choose this book. I notice someone else said they could not read the chapters in an hour, i found i could read them often in significantly than an hour and still understand them. Probably be learn TCP/IP in 10-15 hours max.

4.0 out of 5 stars An easy way to learn TCP/IP 23 Jan 2002
By A Customer
This is an easy way to learn TCP/IP with lots of diagrams and tables to help you understand it... but when it says 'you can read a chapter an hour', don't believe it... Covers most of what you need to know.
