This review is from: CIW: Foundations Study Guide (Hardcover)
The book was extremely thorough and will be the only book you need to complete the foundation exam. The book is excellent for describing networking fundamentals such as topology and protocols.
It offers easy to remember phrases for the OSI model making it so much more easier to remember.
Although the book is not exactly light reading it does fully prepare you for the exam and tests your knowledge throughout the book. The CD Rom is particularly helpful and the book is well structured making it ideal for a reference guide.
