This text emphasizes the technology aspects of networking instead of a strict focus on theory or networking software. The topics are appropriate for introductory courses in both Electronics and Computer Science. Networking topics are covered in simple terms, with an emphasis on the practical rather than the theoretical. Undergraduate students majoring in Electronics or Computer Science will find this to be an ideal text for the first course in computer networks. It is also appropriate for upper level courses for IS students and for students in technical colleges. (Keywords: Electronic Communication)
