Networking Overview

By d.jones092 ·
I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a good book on how routers and network equipment work? Ideal would be something with CBT on a cdrom. Not looking for certification type books...just overview stuff. Any help is appreciated.

Networking Overview

by Delightful Deb In reply to Networking Overview

A book I bought and I think is a brilliant resource would be the Network Administrators Reference. It has loads of examples including an actual plan of how a Network Designer goes about building a network. It's not on CD-ROM but I would highly recommend it. It is by Osborne McGraw Hill. ISBN No. 0-07-882588-1. Another great book, again not on CD-ROM is another by Osborne McGraw Hill called Cisco Internetworking and Troubleshooting. Gives explanations of troubleshooting tools and methods used in Cisco Routers and Switched Networks. The ISBN No. is 0-07-135598-7.

Hope this helps.

Debbie

The CCNA JumpStart book is a pretty good book. It discusses cabling, hardware, protocols, OSes, etc and offers a solid overview. Despite the title, it is not cert-specific. It just gives a Networking background to build from. I got the book when I was getting ready to study for my CCNA, but it didn't really help there. I did enjoy reading it and refreshing my networking 101 knowledge, however. Take a look and see if this has what you want...

Good luck!
