A bible of computer networking technology!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Computer Networks (Hardcover)
Dr. Tanenbaum gave an excellent classical work to majority of people related to the computer networks.
For beginners, the book gives an outline for progress of computer networks, and the most important approaches. For those who study the networking technology systematically, the book provides a set of accurate concepts about networking, with comparison to the easily confused terminologies. For someones full of experiences, the book tells about recent approaches and some important ideas, and presents many important issues that scientists and engineers should consider in the future.
All in all, I think it is the best book on computer networking. It is not only better than all others I've read before, including those in original and translated ones, but also more imformative than its old version -- the 2nd edition.
