Easy way to learn some practical networking skills,
This review is from: Practical Packet Analysis: Using Wireshark to Solve Real-World Network Problems (Paperback)
This book makes using Wireshark reasonably easy if you have some basic computing skills. I use it with my students because I can give them a quick intro and they are then able to work through material on their own. The students quickly get to grips with understanding not just the practical skills, but also issues such as security and privacy. They are often surprised at just how much data is visible to anyone looking.
The most positive aspects of the book are the clear and easy to read style and also the way in which it allows the linking of the theoretical aspects with practice in this area.
