Reviews and Testimonials

Tools for Teaching Computer Networking and Hardware Concepts is an excellent companion resource for instructors working in the areas of data communication, computer networking, and computer hardware. It provides a state of the art report about teaching tools and several examples that will assist and inspire teachers looking for ways of enhancing their lectures and associated labs. I thoroughly recommend it. This is a very useful addition to the networking teacher's bag of tricks.

– Jairo Gutierrez, University of Auckland, New Zealand

Learning objectives, real-world examples, and pertinent review questions make Tools for Teaching Computer Networking a definitive primer for preparing network leaders for the 21st century. Readers begin the journey with an overview of network literacy and proceed into the realm of teaching and learning networks. The text culminates with an examination of networking applications and their impact on society. Finally, Sarkar repeats the process with a look at related computer hardware issues - a stroke of genius and a boon to CIS faculty everywhere. Exceptional resource for instructors, students, and technical reference libraries.
