Computer Lab supervisions - Computer Networking (formerly Digital Comms I)

A long but approachable course. At the time of this writing, it follows the book Computer Networking: A Top-Down Approach (5th edition), which you should get from the library. Supervision questions can also be set from it.

The course webpage is populated online shortly before the beginning of Lent term. Traditionally, not all lectured material is examinable (e.g. Ch 2, 5, 6 partly and Ch 8, 9 entirely were excluded) but make sure you check this info for the current year. The examinable parts are usually mentioned here (if the link is down, try again after the Lent term starts, ask the lecturer or look on the course webpage).
