Computer networking : a top-down approach, James F. . 6th ed. p. cm. Includes bibliographical references and index. Jim Kurose is a Distinguished University Professor of Computer Science at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Dr. Kurose has received a number of recognitions for his educational activities including Outstanding Teacher Awards from the National Technological University (eight times), the University of Massachusetts, and the Northeast Association of Graduate Schools.

The text works its way from the application layer down toward the physical layer, motivating readers by exposing them to important concepts early in their study of networking.

Professors Kurose and Ross focus on describing emerging principles in a lively and engaging manner and then illustrate these principles wit examples drawn from Internet architecture.

Building on the successful top-down approach of previous editions, the Fourth Edition of Computer Networking continues with an early emphasis on application-layer paradigms and application programming interfaces, encouraging a hands-on experience with protocols and networking concepts. With this edition, Kurose and Ross bring the issues of network security to the forefront, along with integration of the most current and relevant networking technologies. Computer Networks and the Internet; Application Layer; Transport Layer; The Network Layer; The Link Layer and Local Area Networks; Wireless and Mobile Networks; Multimedia Networking; Security in Computer Networks; Network Management. For all readers interested in computer networking technologies.

I bought this book for my computer networking class which was run by one of the contributors of this book (George Polyzos). I've read all of chapters 1-6 and some parts of 7, and so far everything seems great. The algorithms are explained in detail, complete with visual material and online supplementary animations which can be accessed via the code in the book. The protocols are clearly explained with a visual representation of the formatting of each packet/segment/frame based the protocol. For me, it was a tiny bit tedious to read some parts and a bit frustrating trying to understand the more complex algorithms, but this was after having read 20+ pages straight beforehand. I never did any of the homework problems as we were given problem sets (possibly from one of the older editions). Overall though I'd give this book 4 stars for doing a great job of teaching general computer networking.
I think it's worth starting off by saying that I'm not going to be too detail specific. I rented this as part of an introductory networking course. Unfortunately, the course and the book don't really work well together. Some aspects of networking are really detailed and thorough - especially when discussing how to build the network layer into software, but when trying to understand the concepts, this book misses pretty significantly. I found myself flipping through several pages looking for the meat of the topic. ("Is there a page missing? Why did it end there?") This could be a good reference book, however some of the core examples are too specific to certain transient solutions or technologies. I liked that the book was organized into the network layers, but there was still some cherry-picking of the details that should have had more content. This has been mentioned in another review as well.
Well written text. The homework problems are awkwardly written. Many of them are written as a string of questions, rather than being broken out in to part a, b, c, etc. It is easy to overlook part of the problem, or provide an incomplete answer.
Most books in computer networks start bottom-up. This is good for those who might be beginners or those who are just looking to get a high level understanding of the field since it starts with the bigger picture and gets to the complicated lower level stuff later. Computer networks might feel dry to some, so starting with the upper level layers to the lower level ones later can more easily grab readers' attention. As a result they're more likely to stay for the entire ride and see how great computer networks are. It provides interesting end of chapter interviews! It also mentions the history and its influence on computer networks, which one might not take away from a computer networks class even though it is the basis of the internet that we know today. Great book!
College textbooks are generally difficult to read, but I've found this text to be rather easy to digest. The first two chapters were especially useful when it came to describing how the Internet works and how applications interface with the Internet. Highly recommended!
Over priced reprint of previous versions. Version 6 is almost the exact same book and it's much cheaper.
I have the International Edition and so can only speak for that. This is the recommended text for our Data Comm course and and I find that the book does a good job given the fact I have zero background in this area. The lecturer also used the slides prepared by the authors so everything tied in nicely. If you do get the book, I would recommend that you check out the student's resources at the publisher's website. There are useful animations that enhance understanding of the material and the one that sticks in my mind concerns routing, MAC addresses and IP addresses. One final note, if you wish to learn subnetting painlessly you will need more material. My advice is to download the 3Com paper referenced by the authors, I read it and it was like a light was switched on.
This has been one of my favorite books so far. I have order a lot of computer related books before this book is by far one of my favorite. The book is written is such a good way, so easy to understand and the provided examples make it even easier to comprehend this subject .
