The book uses a very visual approach that allows you to quickly find the subject areas you need. Then the key points are put into boxes, kind of like someone has gone through with a hi-lighter to emphasize the critical points. These enabled me to skip rapidly through the points I knew about to get to the areas where I needed detail.
This book further is one of the best written and more clearly describes this rather technical subject in clear English words that even a simple programmer can understand.
This is the third edition, it covers some of the newer protocols like SCTP. Exceeding well done book.
Forouzan's TCP/IP Protocol Suite is organized in a manner similar to many other general TCP/IP networking books. It begins with a history and background of the Internet and protocols in general. It then covers major protocols in the TCP/IP suite beginning from the network layer (IP, addressing, routing), through the transport layer (UDP, TCP, SCTP), the application layer (which is a mixture of DHCP, DNS, TELNET/SSH, FTP/TFTP, HTTP, email protocols, SNMP and multimedia), then back to the network layer with IPv6, and finally a few chapters on security, which are largely about cryptography services.
Perhaps like any text of this subject, the difficult part is deciding what to leave out and what to include. What is included here that would probably have been better left out or perhaps greatly revised include much of chapter 3, Underlying Technologies.Read more ›
I would strongly recommend this book for those who want to learn TCP/IP at a conceptual level in addition to Comer. However, if you want to go to the internals, this may not be the right book for you.
If you are considering Comer Vol 1 or Richard stevens Vol 1 for TCP/IP , I would advise you give this book a serious thought too. Preferably goto a local bookstore to check them out and make a decision.
If you want to quickly learn/revise TCP/IP for an interview, this is a great book too because lots of times the self-explanatory illustrations saves you a lot of time from reading the material itself.
