I teach at a Technical College in Silicon Valley and my school selected this book as the text for my class. This book has a great table of contents and, at a glance, appears to be a good book. The problem is that this book's sources are a few years out of date. Also, this book's approach to presenting complex technologies seems to be to omit 'complicated' information--I disagree with that approach. Just as innaccurate information is detrimental to understanding, so too is incomplete information--this book has both. Certifications come and go but, the fundamentals of networking are relatively constant. Books such as Radia Perlman's, 'INTERCONNECTIONS', Douglas Comer's ''COMPUTER NETWORKS AND INTERNETS' and Larry Peterson & Bruce Davie's 'COMPUTER NETWORKS' eloquently explain complex technologies without omitting relevant information. Such books allow you to prepare for real-world performance and multiple certifications simultaneously. If you must use this book, be sure to cross reference the material with a trusted source.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I use this book to teach students and prepare them for Net+ certification. It is an excellent book. The only problem is the price.
