    Description
    By starting at the application-layer and working down to the protocol stack, Computer Networking: A Top-Down Approach Featuring the Internet provides a motivational treatment of important concepts for networking students. Based on the rationale that once a student understands the applications of networks they can understand the network services needed to support these applications, this book takes a "top-down" approach where students are first exposed to a concrete application and then drawn into some of the deeper issues of networking. Computer Networking: A Top-Down Approach Featuring the Internet focuses on the Internet as opposed to addressing it as just one of many computer network technologies. Students are enormously curious about what is "under the hood" of the Internet, creating an extremely motivational vehicle for teaching fundamental computer networking concepts. This text features a comprehensive companion website which includes the entire text online. It allows for direct access to some of the best Internet sites relating to computer networks and Internet protocols. The website has many interactive features, including direct access to the Traceroute program, direct access to search engines for Internet Drafts, Java applets that animate difficult concepts, and direct streaming audio. Finally, the website makes it possible to update the material to keep up-to-date with this rapidly changing field.

    The Best Approach

    Since I was a beginner to Computer Networking, I asked around for a suggestion on picking up a book on Computer Networks. Everyone advised me to buy either Tanenbaum (which is considered a bible for Computer Networks) or Forouzan. But believe me, the Top-Down Approach is the best to get familiar quickly with this field.

    The book starts with the basics of Computer Networks and then covers all the Networking layers. Further the security and media streaming topics are covered in great detail. ...

    Excellent book for beginner in computer networking

    I first read soft copy of the book (available on their website), then decided to own it. It is the precise book on computer networking that I read. Lucid explanations.
    Revised to reflect the rapid changes in the field of networking, Computer Networking provides a top-down approach to this study by beginning with applications-level protocols and then working down the protocol stack.

    Best book for detailed and easy description of network topics

    This is one of a best book for learning or revising network topics. It takes a detailed approach which makes the concepts easy and less intimidating.

    For students preparing for CCNA, if CCNA book looks too techy and difficult then I suggest to read and understand basics from this book and then jump onto CCNA prescribed book.

    I used this book for my Masters studies in US.

    Good Book if you are going through a networking course

    I bought this book as a reference for a MOOC networking course and it was recommended there, new edition came out recently however in core subject it won't matter much since the content won't change with time, The structure is easy to follow and is also very good for reference.
