I felt constant information overload from this book. I may have some residual negative feelings towards it because I had a horrible, rambling, out-of-date professor and I soon discovered I was really not into networking, BUT I do remember this book having tooonnsss of information on every minuscule aspect of networking. I'm not sure all of it was necessary, but I'll let the networking enthusiasts decide.
I HATED this class. It may not have been so bad if I had taken it in person, but all I.T. classes at my school are either at night or online. So I opted for online, and discovered that reading about I.T. without any hands-on is my kryptonite. I have since changed majors, all due this class! I still managed to get an A in it though, thankfully.
Oh hell no. This class was torture and this book is best used to kill bugs or to throw at people.
The material was well organized and presented. It does an adequate job preparing you for the Network+ test. I'd say it gets you about 80% of the way to being completely test ready. My biggest distraction was how every personal pronoun was in the female gender. The only exception I remember was when talking about an intruder on your network, then the pronoun "he" was used. Very odd.
It does it's job, but the information isn't presented in a fashion that helps you retain the information. It's dense text, little white space, and a bunch of terms and facts you have to memorize. They are organized and presented in a good order.
