4.0 out of 5 stars A new "standard" book on TCP/IP, 8 Aug. 2006
This review is from: The Embedded Internet: TCP/IP Basics, Implementation and Application (Paperback)
I liked this book. It book is in two parts. First is theory I found that the theory was clear enough to understand it. Diagrams always help :-) In many ways the first part is "just another TCP/IP book¨

What set this book apart for me is the second half and the software (on the CD). It uses a series of labs to do various part of the stack including serial and ethernet drivers. I found it was brilliant for understanding the theory.

The target processor is ARM which is everyone's favourite at the moment! One thing I like is the dev kits used are obtainable in most countries (they are IAR kits to match the compiler) I hate having to send off to the other side of the world for hardware for a book! That said the SW runs in the simulator too though that is pointless for comms SW!

I think the book is easy to read, all the SW and tools are on the CD. If you want to understand TCP/IP from theory to the last byte of SW this is the book.. This is an ideal book for students. I can see it becoming THE course book for TCP/iP

Why only 4 stars? I had to go and buy a dev kit to really use the SW. I now hacve a new nodes on the network. The quation is what do I get the board to do now.
