Question by M.A: What resource would you recommend for learning about networks?
I know the basics about networks. I know how things work, what the hardware is, how packets are sent, I know almost everything about TCP/IP. But I don’t think that’s enough.
I want to learn everything there is about networks. I’m the guy whom everyone comes to when they have a network problem at work (since we don’t have a network admin). I want to learn how to get into my co-workers computers from the LAN, I want to be able to track down hackers who try to bring down our website, I want to learn to be a network genius (like that guy in swordfish, I know it’s fictional, but that’s how good I want to be).
I’d like to purchase a book to learn these, but I don’t know what to buy. I need a book which speaks in simple terms, books which use big words and talk adultish bore me and I end up throwing it on the bookshelf and never reading it again.
So I always go after books which talk in a simple language and uses pictures to convey its points. The pictures also help me a lot, I actually learn a lot more from pictures than I’d learn from the text, weird, I know.
Thanks in advance for your help.

Well to start, head off to a Chapters (or other book store) and pick up a book on the certification Network+. Skim through the book. If anything at all looks new to you in it, either sit down in a chair and read it or buy the thing and read it at home. Okay, I guess you could go to a library too. Network+ is a foundational network cert. If you’re good with networking, it shouldn’t be anything new.
Next you come to a crossroads. The guy in Swordfish was a programmer, not a network guy. If you want to learn programming I can’t help you.
If you want to do things like “track down hackers”, that’s simple. You collect IP addresses of the source of the attack and then open a case with the FBI. They will take the IP address to a judge, get a subpoena for their ISP, and get an address.
To be a network genius, your next stop is to get material for the CCNA test. To be one with networking you must know how Cisco products (which run 8-95% of any network market) work. This starts with a CCNA, and progresses to a CCNP, and finally (for a select few) a CCIE. There is also a security branch, if you are interested. You can find more information on these off of Cisco’s website.

Any suggestions would be highly appreciated. I need your help. Thank you.

Need some non-textbook resources for 11th grade history. Can anyone recommend a book from personal experience?
Question by nullprofile: Need some non-textbook resources for 11th grade history. Can anyone recommend a book from personal experience?
I’m doing US history this year, to fill in all the blanks. At the rate I’m going, I’ll probably be done with the book in a few months.
After that, I want to start from post-Neolithic and work my way up. If I can, I’d like to avoid a textbook; I tend to have an easier time focusing on books written by nerds in the field. There’s also a price consideration, but if you guys can recommend a textbook that goes for about $ 20 used, that works.
My history plan for next year is to read three chapters a week, and write something about each chapter. Essay, outline, or report, doesn’t matter really as long as it’s something. The ideal chapter length would be about 40 pages; I need to play with information to really retain it and can’t spend much more than an hour on each subject. I’m a fast reader and writer, but I think my point still stands.
I’m only after secular books; I respect religion but I’m not after a religious slant in my education.
According to the last standardized test I took
I read at college level. I don’t put much stock in those tests, but I guess that means I can handle a serious book. How do those tests figure that out?
Anyway, thanks in advance for the help.

Question by Answer Dancer: Which Java book(s) would you recommend?
HI, thanks for your help. My son is ten and wants to learn how to write Java code — he’s the kind of guy that will end up coding all day and loving it — it’s completely his way of thinking and he has had successes with other programming, like Alice, etc.
I have only the smallest experience in this area. I would like to help him. We have downloaded Eclipse and he has written a few very simple programs.
Old-fashioned though it may seem, we want a good book. Not an online resource or the API, a book. Can you recommend one that is TRULY EASY to understand, yet is current?
We got Head First Java from the library, but it is from 2003.
Should we get the second edition, 2005? It’s still a few years behind.
We DON’T like Java in a Nutshell — lots of info but too hard for a beginner.
Also, books with proprietary classes seem pointless. Once you’re done with the book you don’t have the skills to write programs that they shortcutted for you.
Also: Since the API keeps growing, it seems like it’s really important to have the latest thing. Is that true?
