Description
Information
Frustrated by reading networking books chock full of acronyms that put your brain into sleep mode? Head First Networking is your companion on your step-by-step journey from a newly minted CCNA/CCNP, to a network guru with not only the answers but the explanations to support them. "Head First Networking" provides a task-based approach to the computer networking body of knowledge. This is a practical title that teaches networking concepts as tied to on-the-job tasks, blending practice and theory in a way that only Head First can. For example, the task of running wires or cables on the surface can be explained to a network newbie as: run Cable A for Purpose B between locations 1 and 2. However Head First Networking uses this opportunity to "go deeper" and discuss the types of signals being transmitted "over the wire", and how signal loss impacts a network, explains the significance of the differences between hardware for connecting hosts and devices in a network, and finally starts delving into the topics of network models and network topologies (or why you set up a network in a specific fashion). Like all of the books in the Head First series, Head First Networking uses a visually rich format designed for the way the brain works. Based on the latest research in neurobiology, cognitive science, and learning theory, this book combines words and pictures in a compelling, mixed-media style that not only helps readers understand a subject, but also to remember it.
