Very disappointed

Too theoretical, glibly summarising the topic, hasn't helped my practical understanding of how components work in a network.

If you don't have a text copy of the book, beware

There are a lot of concepts in here that benefit from visual representation. The narrator mentions various diagrams, but there's no way for me to actually look at them. This book desperately needs a companion PDF.

Not a bad Book for a super first time user

Needs more meat and potatoes for Network Plus. Other than that, it's a very good listen.

I could not imagine a more thorough

I could not imagine a more thorough and useful reference for networks. The book is extensive in its coverage and some topics are perhaps more advanced for those of us who are simply attempting to gain an understanding of how our home network functions.
