Required Textbook for a Networking Class Jan. 2 2013
By Sarah Kidd - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
So, I bought this book because it was required for a class I was taking. It was actually pretty easy to read, so I didn't really have to force myself to read it. It was quite refreshing compared to other textbooks I've had to read. Not that I'll probably read it as a night-time story, but I still have it, just in case for future reference. So, overall, not too bad.

the order of the chapters seems disjointed July 21 2013

I found the flow of the book challenging and as the headline notes, the chapter order and content with the chapters seems disjointed.

Too expensive, for what it is... June 24 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It is clear the author has a good understanding of the topic. The book is over priced. The author frequently uses math formulas to explain things that are not simplified by math formulas. There is a lot of good basic knowledge in the book for someone beginning in Computer Security. I gave it 2 stars because I would have paid a max of $20 for this book, and after my class which used this book, the most valuable thing I learned was a trick for creating strong but easy to remember password.
Some good some bad June 4 2014

Format: Hardcover
I am currently using this book for a class i'm taking. It is very good in explaining concepts. Unfortunately, many of the exercises in the first 4 chapters so far come with the expectation that you know how to do advanced programming in several programming languages, and do projects like asking you to write a software keylogger, or write a simulator.

On one hand it says it could be used as the 2nd course in a computer science sequence after the introductory computer science course, and then in the next paragraph says they assume the reader is familiar with a high level programming language and it's main constructs.

If your instructor decides to give you the programming homework and programming is not a prerequisite, like it isn't for my class you might need to learn C++ on the fly and I might need a tutor to get though them.....
