CSCI 466
Fall 2013


This page lists the dates of all the lectures with links to slides and examples from the lecture (if any). Readings are in the book Computer Networking: A Top-Down Approach by James Kurose and Keith Ross. To get the most out of lectures, skim the reading beforehand (or at least look at the pictures!). After the lecture, go back and read the pages carefully and do the book exercises. You might also want to print out the lecture slides so you can make notes on them during lecture.
