From the Back Cover
In just 24 sessions of one hour or less, you’ll discover how to implement, monitor, and manage a TCP/IP network–even the latest cloud-based and IPv6 networks. Using this book’s straightforward, step-by-step approach, you’ll uncover the essentials of TCP/IP and put that knowledge to work through practical examples. Each lesson builds on what you’ve already learned, giving you a strong real-world foundation for success. Expert author and network engineer Joe Casad guides you from the basics to advanced techniques―including TCP/IP’s architecture, layers, subnetting, CIDR, routing, security, utilities, remote access, web services, streaming, and much more.
Practical discussions provide an inside look at TCP/IP components and protocols.
Step-by-step instructions walk you through many common tasks.
Q&As at the end of each hour help you test your knowledge.
Notes and tips point out shortcuts and solutions and help you steer clear of potential problems.

I really like the way this book is structured - it takes you through each of the TCP/IP layers in a straightforward and readable fashion.
It hasn't left me confused once - which I'd say is quite an achievement given such an ostensibly esoteric subject.
Having read the book I now have a new found confidence in dealing with network issues. Highly recommended.
I knew various bits and pieces relating to TCP that I had picked up working on other areas and this book has filled in the missing pieces and explained or clarified others. If you are new to the subject or like me need to get up to speed across the board this is a good way.
It is split into 24 by 1 hour chapters. I got through much faster as I had a background knowledge. But I suspect an absoloute beginer would happily complete a chapter an hour as the book claims.
