As both the number and types of students are increasing, it is essential to have a textbook that provides coverage of the latest advances, while presenting the material in a way that is accessible to students with little or no background in the field. Using a bottom-up approach, Data Communications and Networking presents this highly technical subject matter without relying on complex formulas by using a strong pedagogical approach supported by more than 700 figures. Now in its Fourth Edition, this textbook brings the beginning student right to the forefront of the latest advances in the field, while presenting the fundamentals in a clear, straightforward manner. Students will find better coverage, improved figures and better explanations on cutting-edge material. The "bottom-up" approach allows instructors to cover the material in one course, rather than having separate courses on data communications and networking.

    This is one of the worst academic material I've come across. Not to mention,it's super lengthy and repeats the same thing in different manner for pages after pages,this book gives too much importance to physical layer and data link layer,the network layer is comparatively better while there are hardly any matter pertaining to the transport layer and application layer which are the two most important layers in the internet spectrum. Exactly 50% of the book is devoted to the most unimportant and u This is one of the worst academic material I've come across. Not to mention,it's super lengthy and repeats the same thing in different manner for pages after pages,this book gives too much importance to physical layer and data link layer,the network layer is comparatively better while there are hardly any matter pertaining to the transport layer and application layer which are the two most important layers in the internet spectrum. Exactly 50% of the book is devoted to the most unimportant and useless physical layer and as we go up the layers,the material decreases which actually should have been opposite. So when it comes Computer Networks, Kurose & Ross is the best bet,not only they follow the top-down approach but have actually removed the entire physical layer from their book. Maybe for the electronics based students,physical layer might be important,but for CS folks,it a complete waste of space and time

    Read this book recently as part of a graduate level introductory course on computer networks at the University of Saint Thomas in Saint Paul, Minnesota.

The book covers the five layer TCP/IP protocol suite and provides a basic understanding about each layer using plenty of diagrams complemented with supporting text. A lot has changed in the networking area since I took a Computer Science course about the topic during my undergraduate days in the late '80s - wireless communications, Internet telephony, multimedia, network security, and IPv6 - to name just a few. And this book gave me enough information to get caught up with a basic understanding about the newer developments, and provided a much required refresher about content I had forgotten about or partially understood in the past. There is also an online learning center for this book - which in my case, helped prepare for tests and revise my understanding of the chapter materials. Included as well is some introductory coverage about cross-cutting topics such as Network Security and Quality of Service. In short, I found the book to be an easy to understand introduction to a highly technical and interesting topic. One gripe I have about this book is it's rather high price. At $120, it makes for quite an expensive book and I probably would not have bought it had it not been required for the course.

    I have read this book during my studying for IT/Networking. I took it as a reference in many coerces, it gives you a clear and a sophisticated way of explaining networking and layers and how they work. Highly recommend

    way too long. way too in depth. insanely dry. not at all the best text for an undergraduate introductory networking class. too much communications and information theory math. not enough focus on networking. what would be more useful would be a slightly more in depth Network+ guide. been a professional in the field for a long time, and i've never used about 900 pages of the material in this book. though, that intimates that i believe understanding the underpinnings of a thing is less important t way too long. way too in depth. insanely dry. not at all the best text for an undergraduate introductory networking class. too much communications and information theory math. not enough focus on networking. what would be more useful would be a slightly more in depth Network+ guide. been a professional in the field for a long time, and i've never used about 900 pages of the material in this book. though, that intimates that i believe understanding the underpinnings of a thing is less important than understanding how to work with the thing. i don't. I'd just feel better suited learning about the OSI model and maybe even programming some TCP sockets in C, than going through this text again. For a class. Fore reference, this, i thought was a great networking book: Tamara Dean's Network+ Guide to Networks

    It's over 1200 pages yet still it's only a "brief overview". I read it cover to cover, and though I was never bored, it certainly wasn't exciting. If I had to do multiple readings (which I do) my preference is definitely with Tanenbaum's "Computer Networks". Meanwhile, I can't help wonder what else I could be doing with my time instead of repeatedly reading data communication textbooks (ie like reading Atlas Shrugged, 2666, Ulysses, Kingkiller Chronicles, 1Q84, Infinite Jest, etc).

    PROS: This is a good textbook for introductory courses to networking. The chapters include detailed yet easy to grasp explanations of the topics covered, often with figures and demonstrations. CONS: This textbook was prescribed for my course so I had to study it in depth.There are NUMEROUS errors/typos in the examples and chapter questions. Also, some of the figures (e.g. IP addressing) contain incorrect data. Unless you study/read this book actively, you may miss on these parts.

    CSC305:Data communications and networking Fall 2011-2012 MoWe 4:30-5:45 pm An interesting and wonderful course..It was really easy and I enjoyed my time..I did very well during the semester except the final which was really easy but I didn't do well on it..But at the end I was really satisfied with my results.. And after taking this course I decided to specialize on networking.

    Seiring dengan berakhirnya semester maka saya nyatakan buku ini selesai dibaca :). Buku nan tebal ini membahas A sampai Z mengenai jaringan komputer. Mengenai jaringan komputer, buku-buku Pak Forouzan bisa dijadikan pegangan.

    Forozan has a simple straightforward language. This book is best chosen as an introductory to the networking field.
