Users Comments:

  • If you want Windows networking info, then this book is probably fine. But if you’re wanting to learn Unix, Linux, etc., then not so much. The book sort of pretends to cover all flavors, but in actuality, very little info is here for anything other than Windows. Although there are chapters and specific cases citing Windows, nearly all the generic information is also about Windows ONLY.
  • The book looks great but whoever packed these items together is an idiot. I ordered two items and they came in the extremely over sized box you see in the pictures. As a result, the new book I bought was bent up. Don’t know who to blame here. Anyway, book information seems very good and interesting. I hope the person who packed this sobered up eventually.
    Update: Looking through I am very disappointed at the small section dedicated to ipv6. At this point there should be much more in this than a few paragraphs. I will need to look elsewhere for more information regarding ipv6.
  • As a CIO I need to manage the people who manage my network. I don’t need to know everything, but I need to know enough about what they suggest to make good decisions. This book is a good review for someone like me who has been out of school for years and needs to catch up on the latest options in networking. It is also a good primer before reading more specialized books. It helped me get a grasp on things before I started studying the differences between VMWare and Hyper-V.
  • If you feel overwhelmed by the subject of networking and don’t know where to start, this is not a bad place. The nine mini-books contained in this all-in-one do a pretty good job of introducing the various subtopics in this very broad field. Some subjects are covered in more depth than others. I especially appreciated the chapter on Network Standards and Protocols and the mini-book on TCP/IP and the Internet. Some of the troubleshooting tips I thought were pretty lame.
    I am not generally one to buy dummies books. I don’t like the way they tend to waste my time with silly jokes. Nonetheless, this book has been useful to give a gentle introduction to a complex and highly technical subject area. Now I know enough of the basics and terminology to proceed elsewhere with my studies. This book is not a keeper for me.
  • Since I began reading this “NOVEL” as one could put it, I have been awestruck by its basic layout and superb descriptions of everything you wanted to know about networking but were afraid to ask. My job which deals with training operators, engineers, and technicians on DCS equipment and networking of other systems to them, and being able to tie the system to HMI’s which are laptop and desktop PC’s with windows server 8 and windows 7 thorugh networking applications.
    This I highly recommend for the beginner networker who wants to know the “Straight up” on the “Whole 9 yards” of networks. I can’t say enough about the material and it’s clarity on ALL the topics!!
  • This book is massive in scope and in composition, but is written so that even the biggest dummy can reap the knowledge it has on its pages. I am a Network Security college student and I consider this book to be the glue that holds so many of the concepts I have learned together, and simplifies them when I just don’t get the point of why I’m learning what I’m learning. This book comes recommended by my instructors and I echo their sentiments. Just be aware that this is no substitute for formal certification test review.
  • Although I had already built a home network, I wish I had this book first. It would’ve saved me a lot of “difficult-learned” mistakes. Now that my job has “shifted” to include networking, remote access, etc. – decided I needed a good reference book on the subject. Since I chose to invest in this of my own accord, I didn’t want to spring for the “latest and greatest” networking book. This filled my needs nicely at a very good price, as it is not “the latest”. Though I am not comparing it here to other networking books, to me it was worth every penny I spent. I like to have a few “real” print reference books like this around when “the network is down” and trying to use 4G on a 4″ LCD display of a cell phone for help doesn’t cut it <grin>.
  • I purchased this book because I wanted to learn how to set up a VPN network on windows or Linux. I did not find this information. Instead, half of the book teaches very basic windows network features like connecting to a lan or to WiFi or sharing files over the Network and the other half is very elaborate stuff about TCP/IP which I found interesting but it wasn’t explained thoroughly enough for me to understand, it was covering fundamentals too quickly such as subnets, zones etc.
    Don’t get me wrong, there are interesting topics covered for the novice but they are not properly taught.
    I now have to get another book to continue learning about the subject the right way.
