A good supliment
I must say that overall this is a very good book that has quite a bit of "little extra" info in it.
Also, I am currently working towards my certified Cisco network associate (CCNA) and this book is working out to be a very nice resource to turn to after class. It goes into a lot of the little things that I had questions about in class but that were out of the scope of the class or the instructors just never went over (like some of the TCP/IP stuff).
However, I consider myself an above average computer user (its been a hobby of mine for about 10 years now) and a novice/intermedite programmer, and there are some things in this book that are just over my head. I would say that I understand about 80% of the content and I just chug through the rest. This is not an entry level book. After realizing the level of content I checked the jacket and it gives the impression that this book is desigend for people that are already in the IT field and they arn't kidding!
Still good to read through though and I'm picking up quite a bit of intresting information!

I found this book to be very helpful in all my tasks. All of the configuration examples are exactly as they should be. I was having a hard time with some of the different technologies, but this book explains everything very simple. I recommend this book to any Network Engineer who needs a no nonsense all in one guide.

An ideal, highly recommended title for novice developers.
In Understanding The Network: A Practical Guide To Internetworking, UNIX/NT network administrator Michael Martin serves up real-world examples and practical advice on the fundamentals of professional networking. Each chapter builds on the previous one so that by the concluded chapter the reader will clearly understand everything necessary to build and manage a multiprotocol local or wide area computer network, as well as have a solid foundational understanding of the technical material needed to continue study towards a Cisco CCNA, CCNP, or CCIE. Understanding The Network is a highly recommended instructional work for novice network developers and has much of informative value for the more experienced networking professional as well.
