Most helpful critical review
Very weak and lacking better data/network books available
on February 21, 2000
This book only lightly touches subjects that any begining or intermediate network engineer would need to know about. The problems at the end of each chapter ask questions that are not addressed by the author or he only touches on briefly. Therefore making the reader locate another source to answer the authors question! He is to much into signal theory (who cares how I square wave is constructed) when was the last time you got out your O-scope to check and watch the signal variations on your network. It seems that this book is just thrown together to make a quick buck. Avoid it at all cost.
