Publisher's Summary

Do you want to know more about network protocols and OSI model?

Then you are in the right place!

Computer networking is something that many people are not too certain about. They may be interested in this kind of topic and what it is able to do for them, but they worry that learning about the network they use is too complicated, or it just does not matter if they learn anything about it in the first place. 

Whether you are handling your own personal network that just includes your computer and a few devices, or you want to create a large network and keep it safe for your business, knowing the basic parts of networking you are going to find that it is so important to put it all together to get the best results. 

Some of the topics that we will discuss in this guidebook include:

  • The different types of networks that we are able to work on, including wired and wireless.
  • How to handle the different kinds of protocols that are out there, and how to know which one is best for the situation that you are dealing with.
  • A more in-depth look at the OSI model.
  • How to understand the different parts that come with the OSI model and a look at each one in more detail as we learn more about this model and how it benefits us.
  • Understanding the importance of network security

The basics of computer networking can sometimes seem like it is really hard to understand, and like there are a million pieces that we need to put together before we are able to get it to work for us. When we listen to this guidebook, we can slowly start to put it together and understand better why this networking is so important.

great audiobook

This is a very comprehensive and practical audiobook to help you start learning Linux. Keeps things simple and leaves out details that could be confusing or discouraging for a person new to the subject. Good examples and exercises at the end of every chapter to help you practice what you learn. Totally recommended.

amazing audiobook.

I thought it was a really great little audiobook that connected a lot dots on my understanding of the internet. I had quite a few “Aha!” moments. Growing up using the internet I am familiar with many of the words, but none of the real mechanics at work

good audiobook.

this audiobook is perfect for what i was looking for. i have worked in the computers and communications field for almost 20 yrs before i went on disability 7 yrs ago, due to a traumatic accident. therefore i havnt worked or studied anything computer or networking related for almost 7 yrs. Now as i am trying to refresh my mind with what I used to know and even newer things since then, this book has been great thus far.

amazing audiobook.

This is a wonderful audiobook. I highly recommend it. 'Dr Chuck' does a fabulous job of simplifying for the non-technical reader the complexities of the Internet. While this is an introductory overview it is not rudimentary. He uses plain language and provides ample common-sense explanations of how this elegant engineering marvel actually works.

good audiobook.

He's simply a good communicator, has a knack for explaining it at the TRUE starting point and taking it in steps that are easy to understand. This audiobook doesn't come close to getting you certivied as a network engineer, but is a very good introduction for people who don't know the basic building blocks and design concepts of networks.

great audiobook

Very solid intro to networking concepts. I've worked in the software industry for a long time, though TCP/IP has always been a bit of a black box that I've taken for granted. Very quick, engaging, informative primer on networking.

good audiobook.

I am a beginner in the Network field and I was looking for a audiobook that can give a 'bird eye' over the Topic and can explain in a simple way complicated technical subjects. This audiobook delivers very well a good introduction in the Networking field and is for sure an excelent starting Point. Of course for deeper understanding, you should buy other audiobooks that are more focused in a certain chapter of this Networking All-in-One For Dummies audiobook.

Very amazing audiobook, with chapters in all the basics of networking, especially on WIndows. This audiobook should be most for anybody who wants to get introduced to networking, and at least the 2 first chapters should be good for anybody who wants to know how computers work in general.

I find this audiobook to be more useful than Kali Linux Revealed. I am about half way through the exercises and I have learned a lot. If you're on Twitter, make sure to follow "Occupy the Web", this person posts useful stuff.
