'Computer Networks', Fourth Edition is the ideal introduction to today's networks - and tomorrow's. This classic best seller has been thoroughly updated to reflect the newest and most important networking technologies with a special emphasis on wireless networking, including 802.11, Bluetooth, broadband wireless, ad hoc networks, i-mode, and WAP. But fixed networks have not been ignored either with coverage of ADSL, gigabit Ethernet, peer-to-peer networks, NAT, and MPLS.

An awesome book with very clearly laid out information, specially for the beginner in computer networks. It presents some subjects that, while do not seem absolutely relevant, are still rather interesting (history of origins of the internet as we know it comes to mind). Specially great for clearing concepts one has doubts about, and an infinetely useful accompanying tool to study for finals related to the subject. ( )

Tanenbaum presents here, in Computer Networks, a very, very encompassing overview of computer networks, including the different layers that comprise it.

If you've ever wanted to know more information than you could possibly require on Computer Networks, including the history of just about every aspect of them, then this book is for you. Granted, the edition I read, the 4th, was published about 7 years ago, when handheld devices that connected to the internet were not ubiquitous. Likewise, other aspects of the book do not necessarily represent the "bleeding edge" of network technology.

But, this book will definitely satisfy your hunger with computer networks, and you may find yourself gorged with information, as sometimes it borders on giving you a little more information than you actually need. Recommended for those interested in the theory and practice of computer networks. ( )
