    Can anyone recommend a good all round networking book with diagrams and good explanations.
    I have got David Groths excellent Network+ 2005 book but I would
    like a general networking book as well rather than the objectives for an exam :biggrin

    I dare say the Guys will answer more comprehensively than me here, Boyce, but one book that I know many network guys swear by is Ian McLean's TCP/IP Black book.

    Have a look HERE (clickable link)

    Cheers Gav. I was thinking of this
    Anything saying Cisco I though of as pretty advance stuff but this book goes through fundamentals too! :D
    What do you think?

    I don't know how indepth you want to go, but I have TCP/IP Illustrated, Vols. 1 & 2 out of the 3 volumes. They are fairly academic, getting dated, and deal a lot with Unix networking, but if you really want to understand TCP/IP and networking they are very good.
