Publisher: McGraw-Hill Osborne Media - Certification Press
Publish date: September 19, 2014, 2nd edition
1st edition will not work for this class. This book has a network simulator that will be used in the course as well as an exam simulator for anyone interested.
This is a new book. It will be at Amazon by the first week of September, but may not be on the bookshelves in stores until September 19th.
Note: Both books are consummer market books and should cost together substantially less than a single textbook. Current (8/2014) Amazon prices new are $33.07 and $28.07 respectively.
Note the Kindle versions and rental versions sometimes are often missing resources like Appendices and sample files, BUT we can generally work around that by me adding the materials to the Web site – so let me know if that happens.
- PDFs included in the modules
- Publicly available web sites linked in the modules
