Most helpful customer reviews

By Dale Jennings on Oct. 25 2003
Format: Hardcover
I can only give this book a lukewarm recommendation since it appears to be very outdated even through it was recently published. Most examples and discussion were on Windows 95/98 and NT 4.0. Hardly any mention of Windows 2000 and almost none for Windows XP except the in the lab. Also almost no coverage of Linux/Unix. Finally, the book is not very well organized and covers the same material in multiple chapters.
The virtual lab supplied with the CD in the book is probably the best part and provides some value for beginners but is too simple for most students taking Network+.

I was previously CCNA certified when I took this test, thank goodness. I was hooked on the Sybex series because of Todd Lammle, what a great author he is. This book was not clear, even inacurate. Level two datagrams are called frames, not packets. Packets exist at layer 3 of the OSI model. This error kept popping up, if I didn't know the real answer I would have missed the question on the test that related to this. The book did not discuss token ring well enough for me, as I have never used it. I would suggest finding another book or going through a Cisco Networking Acadamy, you can get both your CCNA and your Network + certification that way. I felt like I wasted money on this book even though I passed the test the first time. Look elsewere
And remember that layer 3 datagrams are called packets, layer 2 datagrams are frames...hence frame relay which is a layer 2 technology and packet filtering capabilities of routers which operate at layer 3.

This book wasn't bad, but I didn't feel it was well written. The author gives you the bare minimum of what you need to know with little to no explanation. Unless you're A+ certified, you may be lost, as the author uses very technical terms and doesn't "dumb it down" for newbies. I'm not saying the book isn't complete or doesn't cover the exam objectives; it covers everything you need to know. I just felt the author's writing style was hard to follow. I bought the All-in-One Certification guide (Michael Meyers) and I feel it is much more well written and easier to follow.

Take a well known author for A+ and Net+. Add in a highly respected CCNA Author. Add to that a highly successful book for Network+ certification. Finally throw in a lab simulator and package it under through a publisher well known for producing high quality technical reference manuals.

Now you have the perfect study tool for the Net+ Certification. David Groth and Sybex have teamed up to give you an updated text for Network+ and thrown in a lab simulator to make the chance of passing the exam first time better than ever before.

I found that the OSI breakdown is not only perfect for Network+, but also the A+ class I am teaching benefits from it as well. Groth also has a great 200 pages for TCP/IP, again the explanation is written for all levels making a perfect learning and teaching tool.

Once again the text is technically up to date and accurate. The team has certainly done everything here including hands-on labs, practice questions, tips and tricks.

There are 2 cd included, one with practice exams and the other with the simulator. What should be included in either a separate lab manual to use with the simulator or the lab manual as part of the book.

Overall you have both a first rate book and simulator. If you are looking for a good set of tools for the networking, then you may just want to start here

This book is easy to understand and follow. It's very in-depth in most areas. The one area I would have liked to see more work on was Netbeui, as I never felt it explained it well. Besides that, the book is excellent.
The practice exams are hard, but will help you to figure out what you need to go over more. I didn't find many errors, and none that would have really messed me up. Great book, buy it!

I don't have a strong networking experience. After I read the reviews at Amazon.com I thought this was the right book for me. It explains everything clearly. Very easy to read. Even the most technological terms are explained clear enough for beginners. I took my certification exam after reading this book twice and I passed. However, you should not rely on the practice questions that come with the book. Try to learn as you read.
Thank you Mr. Groth. Irecommend this book everybody who is planning to take the test.

If you absolutely must pass the Network+ exam, then this is the book for you. This book teaches to the test. the included cd has the entire text to do searches and hundreds of practice questions in test formats that appear similar to the real exam.
also many practice questions are nearly identical to the actual exam. I read through the book the spent over 50 hours on the pactice tests. i scored 826/900 on the actual exam. that correspnts to roughly 91%. the bad news is that i will need a better book to keep in my office as a reference. if its not on the test, its not in this book.

Just passed the Network+ exam with 863. I read this book cover to cover and did all questions on the CD. The TCP/IP Utilities chapter is very good and you will see that on the exam.
Suggest reading this book and have lots of practical hands-on experience before attempting the exam.
