Networking: A Beginner's Guide
This chapter also discussed several broad areas you might consider pursuing in
the field of networking. Demand for trained, capable networking people is extremely
high, salaries are top-notch, and people working in the networking field have jobs that
are--more than most--fun, stimulating, and rewarding in many ways.
Finally, you learned a little about the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and how it
impacts networking professionals.
The next chapter starts exploring the technical details of networking by briefly
discussing some basic computer science concepts that you need to understand. If
you already know about different numbering systems and about how data rates are
measured, you can probably skip the next chapter and move on to the networking
topics that follow, although be warned that you need a strong grasp of how binary
numbers work to understand some of the discussion surrounding network protocols
in Chapter 8.
