1.0 out of 5 stars Not very helpful April 5 2002
By A Customer
This book was an extremely poor pick. The theory behind the OSI Reference Model is not given at all. The first 3 layers are covered to some basic extent. Overall, the book seems to be a series of long PowerPoint presentations put together in book format. By PowerPoint presentations, I am referring to each page being a list of "bullet-point" phrases that is only there to give a reader a guideline for the lecture she is hearing. Unfortunately, there is no accompanying lecture, so the presentation is totally useless. Altogether, this was a waste of money.

5.0 out of 5 stars OSI Reference Model for Telecommunications April 11 2002
I thought the book was very helpful. The book provided a great connection between the OSI Reference model and a telecommunications environment. Both of these enties have to work together and the approach in this book made it helpful to understand. The diagrams were also helpful and I found the approach of itemizing the information instead of paragraph form made it easier find me information and go on.

5.0 out of 5 stars OSI Reference Model for Telecommunications Dec 24 2001
This book has provided me with a single point of reference to understand telecommunication environments. I purchased this book at a local book store and went back the next day to buy a copy for the folks that work for me and they have sold out. I recommend this book to anyone who has anything to do with telecommunications. I believe this book will also assist me at home to build a LAN network.
