Comprehensive superficial review

Networking for Dummies, 11th Edition addresses all, clearly but never in much depth. Networking under a Unix OS? Here are some things about Unix. Windows? Here's a brief tour. Wanna be a networking guru? Pay for the training. Clueless and want a broad overview of the challenges? This book can help. Typical of the series.

Entertaining

For such a dry topic, this read was entertaining and the data conveyed is definitely useful if you are intending to work with networks and have not been trained as a network associate or received your CCNA designation. Thanks.

Great

Great book for beginners. Teaches you from the basics. If you already know a bit about networking then there probably isn’t that much useful information in this book but if you want to learn from scratch it’s good.
