Format:Paperback
Several years ago, on very short notice I took over the teaching of the networking classes offered at the college where I teach. With no syllabus or any other guidance to give me a place to start, I had to select the textbook and try to develop the content as I went. Without a great deal of investigation, I selected this book as the text.
I used it for two years, growing increasingly dissatisfied with how it presented the principles of networking. In my opinion, to understand networking you must have a thorough understanding of the seven layers of the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) reference model and the structure of the primary protocols used to create messages between computers. In my class, I delve as deeply as possible into these topics. As I found myself writing longer and more detailed supplements, I decided that it made sense for me to complete the creation of what I wanted to use.
I also wanted to give students as much hands-on experience as possible, so I used Cisco Configmaker, which allowed them to create networks using simulations of the Cisco devices. Therefore, after the second year, I dropped this as a textbook, using my handouts instead. With almost no coverage of IPv6 and other technologies such as SOAP, XML, HTTP, UTF-8, XDR, SCTP and little explanation of the common ways networks are attacked, I will not be using this book again.
