Lucidly Written, Ideal for exam preparation and To gain sound basics

I brought this when i had 3 months to prepare for GATE exams, you can cover a lot of ground if you give a decent amount of time per topic, say about 15 mins to a page and 1 hr for a topic. Once done you would be able to gain much need competence to solve questions.

This is one of the lovely technical books out there, if you love to soak in nuances of networks buy this one.

Good But...

There is a huge disappointment with the index of the book, less information about the contents. You will need to read the whole book to know which topics are in which chapters. Also the appendix doesnt help. Overall its good for students to learn more!
