Copy & Paste much?

There's good info here, but a ridiculous amount of repition, as if the author was just trying to fill pages rather than convey knowledge in a structured approach. Skip.

Good start!

It's a very good starting book for understanding communication systems, in a practical sense. It’s actually easier to understand than the actual study guide! It will be more helpful in my networking journey.

Honestly, not for me at all

The book was heavy in cellular and wireless technology over anything else, but lots of focus on simple things like secure passwords and where to find how to change your router info. I didn't like that on more than one occasion Wikipedia was cited as a source, when easily the referenced work could have been used instead. I could go on the site and change the information used right now. Maybe for a novice, this information would be helpful, but I couldn't use most of it.

I couldn't get past the whistle in his voice, I am sure it is the fault of the audio where he wasn't recorded in way to prevent this, but it was literally painful to listen to.

Good refresher

Trying to refresh my self on the introduction. And this book helped me.this is really a beginner's guide to computer networking. I bought a book for my grandfather and now we can freely communicate on Skype and it is easy to use the Internet. A good guide for beginners.

Too broad

I’m afraid to say that this book is just terrible. After 1 1/2 hours I cannot take no more of the lack of detail and overly repeated words.

Additionally the narrator has a whilstle in their voice every time an S or a C is pronounced.

Misleading title too.

misguiding

OK book overall but narrator does not know the difference between bit and byte which is fundamental in this field. can be misguiding for beginners.

Good guide

This book is helpful, but at first, it seems to be filled with a lot of technical information and jargon. However, after listening through the chapters and going back and reviewing, I understood the material much better.

Network Security

I bought this book for an information security advanced networking class and have found it useful. I found it to be a good companion for my other computer networking books. Specifically, it goes into detail about how encryption algorithms work with descriptive figures which helped me to understand the topic.
