Business Data Communications
Business Data Communications, 6/e, is ideal for use in Business Data Communications, Data Communications, and introductory Networking for Business courses.
Business Data Communications, 6/e,covers the fundamentals of data communications, networking, distributed applications, and network management and security. Stallings presents these concepts in a way that relates specifically to the business environment and the concerns of business management and staff, structuring his text around requirements, ingredients, and applications. While making liberal use of real-world case studies and charts and graphs to provide a business perspective, the book also provides the student with a solid grasp of the technical foundation of business data communications. Throughout the text, references to the interactive, online animations supply a powerful tool in understanding complex protocol mechanisms.
The Sixth Edition maintains Stallings' superlative support for either a research projects or modeling projects component in the course. The diverse set of projects and student exercises enables the instructor to use the book as a component in a rich and varied learning experience and to tailor a course plan to meet the specific needs of the instructor and students.

One of the WORST books I have ever had to use during an MIS class. Much of our test consisted of subjects that were painful to even try to find in the book. For example, if I had a question about what is not part of the frame relay frame format, good luck on trying to find the format without an hour of digging. Many of the keywords are not in the appendix or glossary. This book is way too technical and lacks the underlying educational support needed to be a good IT book. Needs way more explanation. It's very to the point, no real explanations. I absolutely hate this book...
This book is awful even the instructor of my class hates it but has to use it.
