I did not get to really use the book much in class but it was easy to follow and the conniption of the book was great

Having taught IT undergrads from earlier versions of this text, I'm extremely disappointed with the disjointed flow of the chapters, but also the helter-skelter way things are thrown together within the chapters. One of many, many examples- Early on, you get students just enough into protocols like TCP and UDP, the 5-layer model and such, and then break off into network security and management? Several chapter later you come back to TCP/IP, after new students have forgotten the earlier stuff several chapters earlier. It's crazy, it's confusing, and this edition is not one I want to continue with. And the price is simply insane- you could cut it in half and it would still be overpriced.

This is a college textbook. The book is decent for understanding the networks and telecommunications- more so the basics. The textbook doesn't provide enough detail/clarity sometimes. Its good, but it seems to flow too fast if you're just learning the subject. The review methods are poor; no assistance is provided by a CD or the online website. It's not work its current prime price.
