The idiot's guide to networking is a good book ,although sometimes it turns out to be heavy. It should explain basics things like what is a LAN in a more understandable way.

Avoid being a complete idiot 9 Jan. 2000
By tropic_of_criticism - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is the first _Idiot's Guide_ I've ever bought, and if others are like this one it will be my last.
It's hard to figure out what exactly this book was designed to do. It gives almost no helpful information in the actual preparation of a network, but instead focuses (inasmuch as it ever does come to a point) on the nature of networks. Maybe this is good stuff for those facing a written exam in a theoretical course in college, but for those of us in the real world, there's simply not much here. Don't expect that this book will actually help you set up a network.
Apparently this a "Complete Idiot's Guide" not because it explains how to set up a network in simple terms, but because you feel like a complete idiot after buying it.

Networks and the Complete Idiot 8 Jun. 2000
By Gwen Chabot Muir - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book gives a very basic understanding of the who's, what's and where's of networking. Have recently signed up for a networking course at the local community college and honestly had no clue about ANYTHING to do with networks. Best used as a primer for what networks are. If you have a good grasp of network basics already, then this book will not be the best buy.

Sorry guys, but it's a dog 22 Nov. 2000
By JE in SH - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is just way too basic.
If you had never heard of a network before it might be useful, but even as a relative beginner I found this book to be _way_ too simpleminded.
I like information to be presented in a non-technical, accessible way. This book manages to be irritatingly simplistic and unclear at the same time. Quite a feat.
I was particularly disappointed because I've liked other books in the same series. I really doubt that anyone with any experience (even just surfing the internet) would find this book very useful.
I hope the authors put a lot of effort into improving the next version, if there is another.

not so good 29 Oct. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have just finished reading this book.
Ok - I did get some new information, but i am ultimately disappointed.
Please only get it, if you are a complete beginner. I thought that i was a complete network newbie, but I knew most of the information already....
