Head First Networking gets your hands dirty solving real network problems. Are you chasing down a break in your fiber network? Did you just discover the blueprints you were given left out major obstructions? Whether it's DHCP or NAT, port mapping or IP spoofing, routers or switches, you'll learn what's really going on--and how to fix the problems that can shut down your network--rather than a laundry list of acronyms and diagrams.
This book will help you:
Head First's popular format is proven to stimulate learning and retention by engaging you with images, puzzles, stories, and more. Whether you're a network professional with a CCNA/CCNP or a student taking your first college networking course, Head First Networking is the perfect partner on your step-by-step journey from junior network admin to guru, with not only answers, but the explanations to support them.
"Head First Networking takes network concepts that are sometimes too esoteric and abstract even for highly technical people to understand without difficulty and makes them very concrete and approachable. Well done."
--Jonathan Moore, Owner, Forerunner Design
"The big picture is what is often lost in information technology how-to books. Head First Networking keeps the focus on the real world."
--Rohn Wood, Senior Research Systems Analyst, University of Montana
