Editorial Reviews

Review

"The text is accessible, the concepts understandable - just what's needed for a freshman-level text." -Robert Friedman

"Fantastic job of treating an important, current technology topic at a reasonable level for an introductory IT textbook. I have not seen anything comparable yet in other textbooks directed at the target audience. The discussion of the different modes (soft IP phone, ATA-interfaced, etc.) is excellent and the Case Study at the end of the chapter is terrific and encourages students to actually "test drive" VoIP technology."

"Overall this chapter is the best I've seen to-date at this level of discussion."

This is just what the professor asked for at a FRACTION of the campus bookstore price.

Great info in a logical order - if used with my own online searches to supplement the book, shortcuts and tips, tricks, and tutorials can be found for a lot of the info. :) The online search results really help when you have an adjunct that might not be so skilled or experienced. Either way, the book is a good foundation for all things IT.

My seller was super fast and the book was in perfect condition when received. Thanks!

The price I rented for this book was very cheap and that is what I like about. It was used book but I didn't care. I just want to save money and I was looking something that I can use over the semester and this was what I wanted.

Approaches IT in a way that is understandable by those who are not familiar with it yet. I'm an IT professional and found it informative.
