    Not Bad!!

    I got this Book in time. Good for Networking concept for current situation. But one disappoint is, this latest edition not contain the "Network Security" Chapter that was contained in the previous edition & also not indicate in detail about the Chapters topic in the Index like the previous edition. So it need to be revised again.
