Data Communications And Networking by Behrouz Forouzan provides a thorough introduction to the concepts that underlie networking technology. This book is accessible to students without technical backgrounds,and also provides material comprehensive enough to challenge the more experienced student. The seven-layer OSI model is used as a framework to provide the background necessary for explaining networking theory and showing interlying dependencies.

The second edition of Forouzan's DATA COMMUNICATIONS AND NETWORKING includes new exercises and some more challenging ones. In addition,he has increased coverage of some new topics in networking such as some of the new encoding systems,fast Ethernet,100VganyLan,ADSL and DSL.

    Excellent Book

    Excellent Book. I was really impressed with the topics as well as the way the material is presented. It is an in-depth, easy to follow book that benifits everyone involved in the data communication field. If you are a beginner student or an advanced network designer, this is IT.
