    I have a 6 Cisco Books. Will they cover how all hardware communicates?

    Sorry for the awkward title. Character limit.
    I have 6 Cisco Books that I plan to read over the next year.
    I got these from my high school teacher.

    My goal is to learn the communication structure between hardware. (Later I hope to get to the relevant information associated with how to build it, but not now)
    I took the class, but I was too sure of myself and didn't actually learn much.

    The titles are as follows:
    Introducing Routing and Switching in the Enterprise, CCNA Discovery Learning Guide, Part I: Concepts
    Introducing Routing and Switching in the Enterprise, CCNA Discovery Learning Guide, Part II: Labs
    Designing and Supporting Computer Networks, CCNA Discovery Learning Guide, Part I: Concepts
    Designing and Supporting Computer Networks, CCNA Discovery Learning Guide, Part II: Labs
    Networking for Home and Small Businesses, CCNA Discovery Learning Guide
    Working at a Small-to-Medium Business or ISP, CCNA Discovery Learning Guide


    Will these books help me acquire the knowledge I want?

    I know it wont cover the how systems are built for emerging technologies like Graphene computing I just want to know the concepts behind the mainstream supplies today.

    It should give you a decent understanding of how networking works and how the different devices communicate with each other over an IP based network. I would make sure you do the labs, if you just read the stuff without having to apply it, you probably won't learn as much.

    Thanks, I will definitely do the labs. I'll buy equipment as I understand necessary (so long as it's <$10,000). I just wanted to make sure I was in the right place.

    So glad I took these with me. My teacher is awesome.
