Great book but not complete


The book is awesomely written by the authors, however it falls short of doing a good job. It's extreamly poorly edited. The question sections at the end of the chapters contain errors in the answers and even some of the questions! Also lab 13-1 is almost entirly wrong. All of chapter 15 is nothing but very poorly typed, highlighted router commands. Whoever was editing stopped after chapter 11, completely! Good book for someone who's already knowledgable about networking but if your new to it and think you could get certified don't look to this book as the best source. My advice is wait for a second printing of this book, hopefully they'll fix those errors. Overall good in knowledge. Worth the money for sure but you'll be confused by all of the errors if you don't have some knowledge already.

From a Begining HTML student


I am new to programming, however have extensive spreadsheet experience and have taken several programming courses in college. I found this book an excellent book for learning HTML on your own. I had to purchase this book for a course and found I picked up more from reading the book than listening in class. The subject matter flows very consistently and the examples and accompanying CD makes it very easy to learn HTML. Again being a beginner, I would highly recommend this book.

Everything you need to know about Cisco LAN QoS


I have recently read the book titled "Cisco Catalyst® QoS: Quality of Service in Campus Networks, ISBN: 1587051206. Cisco Press recently released this book on June 6, 2003. This book is among the best technical books I've read. It is very detailed, covering Quality of Service in all the latest Catalyst Switches. This book is best suited for Intermediate to Advanced Networking professionals. Although there is a great section that explains the fundamentals of QOS for Beginners or those that need to brush up on QOS terms and definitions. I highly recommend this book to anyone who anticipates running QOS in the LAN environment. Having this book ahead of time, before networking equipment purchases or software upgrades will save you a lot of time and money. There are tables in the book that depict the capabilities of the more recent catalyst switches and modules. These tables help a great deal in assessing where your network is at in terms of supporting QoS and perhaps where you need to be in order to accomplish your QoS goalsThis book contains every aspect that should be considered, in order to properly deploy QOS in the LAN environment. There is an outstanding chapter covering the Catalyst 6500 series switch, with hard to find information. The chapter covers every detail from hardware to software requirements. The configuration examples cover both modes of operation whether you're running Hybrid or Native Mode software.This books straight and to the point examples with supporting figures allow a person to dig right to the meat of a given topic. The illustrations assist a great deal in conceptualizing the authors intended message.

A Great SQL Reference - for all levels


I purchased this book to learn how to write some really basic stored procedures, I started to read this book and applied the examples to some SQL tasks at my place of employment, the examples are real world friendly, and describe in detail what they do in SQL and you learn as you go. The authors writing style is concise, informative, and animated. I would recommend this SQL book for anyone who needs to apply a reference for real world SQL programming. A MUST HAVE FOR ALL SQL DEVELOPERS !!
