If you don't have a text copy of the book, beware

There are a lot of concepts in here that benefit from visual representation. The narrator mentions various diagrams, but there's no way for me to actually look at them. This book desperately needs a companion PDF.

Not a bad Book for a super first time user

Needs more meat and potatoes for Network Plus. Other than that, it's a very good listen.

Good

This audio-book is massive in scope and in composition, but is written so that even the biggest dummy can reap the knowledge it has on its pages. I am a Network Security college student.

Very disappointed

Too theoretical, glibly summarising the topic, hasn't helped my practical understanding of how components work in a network.
