3.0 out of 5 stars Good book but way too expensive February 28, 2011
This book is required reading for a network management course I am taking. The book is generally informative at maybe a college junior business student level 1st network management course. It is easy to read and discusses some important subjects. I have not finished it yet.

The authors do go off on a tangent about writing network speeds correctly which I think is a bit overdone.

The cost of the book is just way too high for me. If it was not required I would not have purchased this book.

In summary, a good interesting read but quite costly.

I'm a Computer Information Systems major in my university's business school and took this class the first semester of my senior year. Telecomm is more towards the technical end of our curriculum, but the information I got from this textbook -- and the associated class -- was invaluable. Even though I didn't have a very technical background like most Engineering or Computer Science students probably do, I found the book to be relatively easy to read. It went into sufficient depth that I was able to thoroughly understand the major concepts, but wasn't so comprehensive in the material it covered to the point that I lost sight of the big picture.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible flow to the material February 26, 2012
Having taught IT undergrads from earlier versions of this text, I'm extremely disappointed with the disjointed flow of the chapters, but also the helter-skelter way things are thrown together within the chapters. One of many, many examples- Early on, you get students just enough into protocols like TCP and UDP, the 5-layer model and such, and then break off into network security and management? Several chapter later you come back to TCP/IP, after new students have forgotten the earlier stuff several chapters earlier. It's crazy, it's confusing, and this edition is not one I want to continue with. And the price is simply insane- you could cut it in half and it would still be overpriced.

5.0 out of 5 stars Received just before my class began. August 31, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I wasn't sure why the book was late. Fortunately, the mail carrier gave the book to my cousin in-law, and she was about to send it back, but my husband saw it when he visited her and brought it with him to the house. I take it the person had to be a sub because the regular mail carrier would have rolled up in the yard and gave it to me. But I was happy to see the book.

The textbook was in good shape and I like the point that I can order my textbooks and have them send straight to my address this is convenient for me and save on gas.

some editing mistakes here and there, but a great overview of networking. I worked for Sprint for a number of years and this would have been great to have when I started.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great TEXTBOOK December 5, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have to say this is one of the best put together textbooks Ive come across so far. The thing I like the most is there isn't a long chapter and then the answers for the review questions are somewhere in the last 65 pages....NOT THIS BOOK, It explains something and then asks some questions. Thanks for listening.
