This great, up-to-date book could be used as supplementary network engineers training manual in preparation for Cisco/Networking exams.
One word of caution: This book is not for beginners or software developers. Written for Network Technicians and Engineers in mind, this book requires a solid mathematics foundation to comprehend it. Ideal for students who want to get an advanced knowledge in networking, this book provides an excellent educational blend of theoretical and practical approaches, including real life scenarios.
Nader Mir has extensive knowledge of the networking industry and communicates it in an excellent progression from the basics to more complex situations, including complex number-crunching techniques. This book would come in handy as a desk reference; it would help the reader to grasp ideas of IT and networking at an expert level – illustrating all layers of the TCP/IP model or serving as a troubleshooting guide for an enterprise size network.
Whether you love or hate this book, as an IT or networking tech, you need this book on your desk when something fails in your network.
