Aug 25, Kay rated it it was amazing Shelves: Tanenbaum’s Computer Networks is a good, solid introductory textbook on networking suitable for those with a computing background, either university students or computer professionals.
I learned my basic networking from it six years ago and edition.pi been using it as a reference ever since. It uses a layer-based approach, starting at the bottom and working upwards. A very a wide range of material is covered; there is even an appendix on queuing theory. The second chapter deals with the physical layer and gives information about the types of transmission media, wireless transmission, ISDN, cellular radio and communication satellites.
The third chapter deals with the data link layer and discusses the design issues, error detection, error correction, protocols, protocol specification and verification using Finite State Machine Models and Petrinets and example data link layer protocols. The fifth chapter dealing with the network layer discusses design issues, routing algorithms, congestion control, inter-network, the network layer in internet and ATM networks.
Each of the chapters has been explained in a very down-to-earth style. The language is easy to follow. In addition each chapter has a.s.tanenbsum short summary followed by a large set of problems. The problem set is very useful. The only drawback is the lack of a solution manual to the problem sets. In case one wants to follow up a certain chapter a suggested reading list is provided.
Computer Networks, 4th Edition
D Computer Networks is still one of the best general texts on networking I know computerr, however, and it deserves to survive to a fifth edition. Thank you Dr Andrew S Tanenbaum! Jul 19, Hosein rated it it was amazing Shelves: Used to read this book in order to pass Computer Networks course in the bachelor degree of the university.
I was very good.

A great network fundamental book recommended to efition.phi interested in learning Computer Networks from scratch. Aug 03, Ben Cavileer rated it really liked it Shelves: Excellent book for anyone looking to pick up advanced networking knowledge. Topics have been relevant to my career and I continue to refer to this book.
The information covers a broad range of topics; however, remains detailed enough to give a thorough explanation.
Dec 29, Nav rated it it was amazing. Best book to know the breadth of networking. Mar 17, Koen Crolla rated it liked it Shelves: This book was a bit of a disappointment. Tanenbaum has an unhealthy jetworks of trying to bullshit his way through sections he doesn’t have a firm grip on himself, which was particularly apparent in certain sections on the Physical Layer.
Since he actually has a PhD in Physics, I suppose it’s possible he just wrote an in-depth explanation, then realised his r This book was a bit of a disappointment. Since he actually has a PhD in Physics, I suppose it’s possible he just wrote an in-depth explanation, then realised his readers didn’t need or want such depth, and so started cutting the more complicated parts of it, without paying attention to whether what he had left in the end was still entirely coherent.
Either way, it’s not something you want to see in a textbook author. Some of his chapters also feel poorly structured; for instance, in the middle of the Network Layer, he includes a fairly detailed description of a p2p netwkrks which clearly belongs in the Application Layer. Another problem I have with the book is that Tanenbaum seems a bit too convinced wireless is the wave of the future, and spends considerably more time on wireless protocols than I think they really deserve.
That could be my own biases talking, though. Other than that, it’s a pretty solid textbook. Very few things he says are actually wrong, and to be fair, it’s not intended as a book you read cover to cover, like I did. Many of its problems would disappear entirely in a classroom setting. Feb 03, Manuel J. It’s a very helpful and very complete book about networks. The main point is that it privileges the why over the how, so the boring mechanics takes second place to the reasons behind the choices made along a short but eventful history.
Jul 23, Serejka Keller rated it it was amazing. The book not just gives not knowledge. To me, it’s given something more. Dec 12, Timoteo Ponce rated it it was amazing Shelves: One of the best written books of technology, Mr. Tanenbaum accomplished a very entertaining book with lots of examples, mixing technology and imagination he accomplished to create a classic.

The book also presents some historical background so it was fun to read. I’m better at networks now. Must read for any system administrator.

Aug 24, Nikolas Mavrogeneiadis rated it it was amazing. My favourite book a.s.tannenbaum Computer Networks. Describes in ndtworks all things and it has great exercises.
Nov 09, Philipp Keller rated it really liked it. I was forced to read Tanenbaum in university and I hated it, partially because I didn’t know if it was relevant. Now, after 10 years in the IT a.s.fanenbaum I realized that I need to understand networking and came back to this book.
The introduction is hard to read and somehow put me off. It’s dry especially the illustrations and feels very dated the recent versions just put Buzzwords like Twitter and Facebook in to make it look recent. But once you’re past that you see the beauty of the book: It i I was forced to read Tanenbaum in university and I hated it, partially because I didn’t know if it was relevant. A.s.tanenbaum is very well organized, it goes through all the layers in a good speed so it’s perfect to get an understanding which protocol goes into which layer.
You can skip certain parts e. I skipped layer 1 and can continue just fine after it. The keywords are marked bold you can just cross netdorks entire pages and spot the bold words to check if you’re now leaving out something important. Oct 21, Mj rated it did not like it.
From the perspective of an instructional systems tech major and in which this book is used for instructional systems tech majors, this is not an effective book.
It starts with the introduction chapter, which is nothing very outstanding, but then the next chapter is about the network layer already. It has this bottom-top approach in terms of the network hierarchy and that is not how one is preferred to learn about networks, unless one is already proficient about the concept of networks and this becomes just a guide.
The book also has this way of making things sound easy and funny at times but it is only trying hard to make some concept sound easy, which is even more frustrating.
