 Queueing Course, from Finland. Complete lecture notes, by J. Virtamo. 2005. Over 250 pages altogether.
There is another course with more applied and advanced topics in Teletraffic Theory. Powerpoint notes (2005) can be found at Lectures by Samuli Aalto, Aleksi Penttinen.

 Sanjay BOSE. 2000. An Introduction to Queueing Systems. Some sections of the book are presented completely. The book is summarized in the slides portion of the web site for the text. Further, there is a complete set of solutions for the problems in the text and there is a set of tests to accompany the material. Even more, there are 72 pages of "additional queueing related material" which give analyses of particular queueing models. Definitely check out this site. Better yet, buy the book.
