Just finished the worst class I've had so far. The work itself wasn't the problem. It was the Professor's lack of instruction and support. I'm taking classes online and had to guess my way through most of everything. Many problems occurred with using virtual labs and other students seemed to be more knowledgeable than the teacher.

Anyway, I was wondering if there are any recommended books that explain the ins-and-outs of TCP/IP. Searching on amazon.com brought up a lot of A+ cert books.

Definitely TCP/IP Illustrated by W. Richard Stevens. The whole book is basically packet dumps with explanations by the author.

http://www.amazon.com/TCP-Illustrated-Vol-Addison-Wesley-Professional/dp/0201633469

"TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 1: The Protocols is an excellent text that provides encyclopedic coverage of the TCP/IP protocol suite. What sets this book apart from others on this subject is the fact that the author supplements all of the discussion with data collected via diagnostic programs; thus, it is possible to "watch" the protocols in action in a real situation. Also, the diagnostic tools involved are publicly available; the reader has the opportunity to play along at home. This offers the reader an unparalleled opportunity to really get a feel for the behavior of the protocols in day-to-day operation. TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 1: The Protocols features clear discussions and well-designed figures."
