Very Effective Introduction to TCP/IP Networking
I just wrapped up teaching a networking course. Originally I started with what I still consider to be a great (though somewhat dated) text. Unfortunately, maybe due to the age of the book, maybe due to my teaching style, the students did not seem to be inspired by the material. Then, with a few of the students, I used a number of the labs given in Matthews' book as an experiment to see if her packet trace oriented method pays off. The difference was very noticeable. From now on, her book will be required reading whenever I teach an introductory networking course. Her treatment of the material is not in depth but this is a feature rather than a shortcoming. Students quickly form a solid understanding of the TCP/IP networking infrastructure which then allows the introduction and discussion of more in-depth material.
