For courses in Networking/Communications Motivates readers with a top-down, layered approach to computer networking Unique among computer networking texts, the Seventh Edition of the popular Computer Networking: A Top Down Approach builds on the author's long tradition of teaching this complex subject through a layered approach in a "top-down manner." The text works its way from the application layer down toward the physical layer, motivating readers by exposing them to important concepts early in their study of networking. Focusing on the Internet and the fundamentally important issues of networking, this text provides an excellent foundation for readers interested in computer science and electrical engineering, without requiring extensive knowledge of programming or mathematics. The Seventh Edition has been updated to reflect the most important and exciting recent advances in networking.

The changes in this new edition completely spoil the book. It presents the Network layer based on the proposed management practices of Software Defined Networking (SDN). Since SDN is a new concept that was envisioned for mega data-centers only, it seems to me that the authors are trying to shamelessly peddle this new proposal of their colleagues, and influence the markets by shoving it down the throats of the students at large. This kind of marketing would lead to a skewed version of networking concepts being taught in schools.

Negative: Book Labs Cost Extra
this book has some great points and some poor. my largest fault with it is, what i consider, insufficient L1 info.
when i finished reading it, i looked forward to using the online labs but the 'best' ones would not open. I've just been informed by 'Pearson-Ed' i would have to pay ANOTHER fee to access labs at the 'student resource site'. the book makes no mention of this ability to access some info and not others. pretty lame, i feel, for something I've already paid for, at an excessive price to begin with.
