Shelves: school-textbook This textbook was required reading for a Computer Networking course. As far as college textbooks go, it was pretty good. I learned the material from it that I needed to learn. The textbook was well-organized, and it was easy to understand. It had quite a few analogies and real-world examples that aided in understanding. For me, this textbook was a pretty dry read and I sometimes had trouble pushing through the weekly reading assignments.

Kurose, Keith W. Ross — Book Review Dr. It has become an essential omnipresent technology with explosive growth. There are ample of books accessible for the study and design of computer networks.
This book provides the most balanced and uniform coverage of principles, architecture, practical insights of networks. This book can be a good reference suitable for computer professionals as well as students those with a computing background. Keywords: book review; computer network; internet; layered architecture; protocols. Introduction The Internet is a massive public spiderweb of followed a true approach, in that they attempted to computer connections.
It has become a broadcast teach the building blocks of the major networking medium for the every person. In regard to this the book technologies . Computer Networking discusses technology behind network architecture with layered organization . Ross are researchers, practitioners in the in the field medium for presenting fundamental computer of computer networks. James Kurose is currently a networking concepts. He has been active in the organized as layered network architecture [2, 3, 4].
Authors found that the a number of years. He is a recipient of various honors. As it His Ph. Professor Ross has provide chapters on the application, transport, network worked in security and privacy, peer-to-peer and data-link layers respectively.
It enables teachers to networking, Internet measurement, video streaming, introduce network application development at an early multi-service loss networks, content distribution stage.
He has supervised more than ten Ph. He has served on numerous journal editorial reading. The authors make use of analogy and boards and conference program committees. He has repetition to drive home the content which convinces received various honors and has published many concepts clearly to the learner. Especially we wanted to papers. This explains the relationship between transport and network layer effectively. A solid foundation There are a total of nine chapters, the first of in all layers of the protocol stack is essential for the which cover the big picture and lays out the nuts and understanding of these chapters.
By considering the bolts of internet . The text of this presents a self revolution made by wireless and mobile networks, contained overview of networking with the chapter 6 has focused on the principles, common introduction of many key concepts and terminologies.
A range of A special historical section offered in this chapter and multimedia applications are explored in the chapter 7. Multimedia networking is one of the most exciting The tremendous amount of material covered concisely developments in the field of internet.
In chapter 8, in this chapter. According to authors this chapter itself authors have covered security techniques with constitutes a mini-course in computer networking. The text of book ends The book presents an analysis of each layer of with the study of network management in chapter 9.
In chapter 2, authors have This small unit enlightens important concepts of elucidated many of the applications that rely on the network management. Being academics, authors practice reveals Following are the special features of this book that covering applications early provides motivation which we want to enlighten, for the remainder of the text. The study of this chapter covers the conceptual and complete here.
Chapter ends in the well-defined way. The chapter 3. Chapter 2 and 3 covers network edge programming, construction of web server. Intention of this chapter is interesting assignments are furnished to to explain network layer functions, services, improve problem solving ability. It instills the forwarding techniques, routing algorithms etc. Having readers a keen interest to think and ponder over completed study of the network layer, journey takes issues.
Since the link layer involves a number protocols, technologies, algorithms and of important and fascinating issues that can keep the standards that are used by each layer as it reader busy for a long time. Different link layer relates to the internet. In our opinion it can be used as a reference for those who have to deal with some network issues. All of these chapters are quite long which may give readers the impression that the text drags on.
Readers especially students will likely appreciate reading of this book. According to us, this book provides the best introduction for computer students who have not had much exposure to network theory and are looking for a practical introduction to the subject.
