there is one more good book called "computer networks" by andrew tannenbaum.
this however has much theory about the networks. if you accompany that theory with hands on experience, the book can be a best teacher for u.

I agree with kingshag

Going to a computer show and picking up a couple of 400 mhz computers for 150$ each with monitor
would be good.  I personaly have a home network of 10 computers.  Unfortunatly I can not keep them fired up because it heats my house up too much.  I thought of leaving them on and opening up
a bakery.

Give your grad a cloud of their own!

With up to 8TB of storage, give your favorite graduate their own personal cloud to centralize all their photos, videos and music in one safe place. They can save, sync and share all their stuff, and automatic photo backup helps free up space on their smartphone and tablet.

These guys do have a point I wouldn't go to the extremes of 10 computers but actually working with netoworks is the best teacher But I still believe you should read up on it and your learning will increase by actually reading learning then putting into action.
