A Text book for OMNeT++ (Learning OMNeT++)

This post is for the nsnam.com readers particularly those who want to learn OMNeT++. As you aware, ns2 and OMNeT++ are two software that are freely distributed and available to academics for almost free of cost.

However, when dealing with the documentation, both suffers a set back. NS has a documentation and still researchers across the world have their own way of learning. And OMNeT++ has a proper documentation, that is very huge and takes times to understand.
Packt Publishing has published a book in OMNeT++ authored by Thomas Chamberlain
