    Good way to get started with networks.

    I bought this book because I was looking for a basic orientation to networks, and I wasn't disappointed. It's a light read, with the information presented in a convenient 'read-what-you-need-and-skip-the-rest' format. It covers things from what a user new to networks needs to know to work on one, to what someone who is thinking of becoming a network administrator should expect to do on a day-to-day basis. Certainly a much more advanced and detailed text is necessary to delve into computer networks, but if you are looking for a good place to start and have some of your questions answered ('Just what is ISDN, anyway?', 'How would you set-up a basic home / small business network?', 'How many different kinds of cable, hardware and software are out there to choose from?', etc.), then this is probably the book for you.

    more from this reviewer

    Answered my questions - mostly

    Networking for dummies is written in the same informational yet entertaining style common to all the "Dummy" books. It answered many of my questions about how networks work giving me an understanding of the concept of networks, TCP/IP, DHCS, routers, switches and many of the jargon that we see so much of but often do not understand.
    The only deficiency that I found in the book was that it didn't explain how to add a printer to a network using an ethernet card. In that case the printer actually has its own IP address and is added like a local rather than network printer. This is not intuitive and should have been explained in the text.
