Can someone help clear this question up for me?  I am trying to determine the difference between a physical and logical network diagram (referencing Domain 4)

In several books (Mike Meyers and Sybex) it mentions that Physical digrams include the actual equipment (switches, servers, WAP, etc) along with details about the models of the equipment.  Logical provides the actual IP addresses of the equipment.

However, the Transcender questions provides different information. It says:

Physical Network Diagram presents to user following information:

Telecommunications data, such as cable length, carrying capacity or telecommunication type.
Servers with names, IP address (if it is static), server role and domain name.
Location of network equipment such as hubs, switches, modems, routers, bridges and printers.
Number of network users

Logical Network Diagram presents the information about logical network structure, including:

Domain architecture
Used protocols
Servers roles
Trust relationship

Any help would be appreciated.  Let me know if any additional info is needed to help clarify this question.
