This review is from: Computer Networking: A Top-Down Approach Featuring the Internet (Hardcover)
This is a good and well written book covering new and emerging topics in computer networks. It includes extensive coverage of multimedia themes and protocols, and also covers other applications such as Web (HTTP) and Email (SMTP, IMAP and POP). There is also good coverage of TCP/IP and various inter-router protocols such as RIP, and multicast support in routers such as IGMP. The diagrams are useful and frequent.
Interviews with leading researchers and pioneers are refreshing -- and very useful in a classroom setting. I have used this book for an undergraduate course on computer networking, and also used material within the book on a distributed systems course. I have had positive responses from many students in the class, many of whom have rated this book as possibly one of the best textbooks in the area.
Perhaps, the only thing missing in the book is a chapter on mobile communications (such as integrating wired and wireless networks).
