This webpage presents links to a selection of recommended networking text- and reference books that I have read and consider to provide a solid treatment of many of the topics examined in this unit. If you're considering one or more of these books, you're welcome to borrow my copy for a short time (subject to demand). You may like to read a review of any book you are considering.
Paperback editions, international editions, and eBooks, are all quite suitable.
