    CCNA Certification Study

    This book is excellent for someone who is working in the networking field, has a lot of experience with switches and routers, needs to recertify, or someone with limited time to study but has previous knowledge. It is not a book for learning networking basics. My experience with Certification Tests is that knowing the basics will get you through i.e. IP subnetting, OSI layers, configurations. The CD that accompanies this book has over 300 questions covering the objectives of the new 640-802 test. There are simulations with commands for configuring router interfaces and VTP/VLANs in switches. The explanations seem to be accurate and concise. These explanations for the most part not only spent time on the correct answer, but why the other choices were not good. I did find one of the simulations that did not 'exit' properly. The simulator did not handle errors and unexplained characters well--all error messages were labeled the same 'Invalid Command'. There were many troubleshooting questions the output from commands were displayed in easy to read format and the questions were clear. There is much more emphasis on troubleshooting in this new test. One interesting change from older products in this line is the ability to see a 'quick' answer or a full explanation. This is nice as students study to get quick answers--assuming they already know why the answer is the best! The Cram Sheet in the front of the book is very nice--a great read right before the test. My main concern with the book is it is hard to cover all the objectives with only 300 questions on the CD. The questions in the book were grouped according to subject again, more practice questions on the CD would be nice. Given all the variables of background coming into the CCCNA, I would like to see how someone who uses only this text does on the exam.

    If you have studied the content for the 640-802, 640-822, or 640-816 exams and feel you are ready to put your knowledge to the test, but you are not sure that you want to take the real exam yet, this book is for you. Author Jeremy Cioara, has done an outstanding job of writing the third edition of this book to provide you with practice questions complete with answers and explanations to help you learn, drill, and review for the 640-802, 640-822, and 640-816 certification exams. Cioara, begins by describing how a network works. Then, the author shows you how to implement a small switched network. The author also describes routing operations. He continues by looking at how to implement an IP addressing scheme and IP services to meet network requirements for a small branch office. Then, the author discusses how to implement a small, routed network. Next, he explains and shows you how to select the appropriate administrative tasks required for a WLAN and Identify security threats to a network and describe general methods to migrate those threats. The author continues by showing you how to implement and verify WAN links. Then, he shows you how to configure, verify, and troubleshoot a switch with VLANs and interswitch communications. He continues by looking at how to implement an IP addressing scheme and IP services to meet network requirements in a medium-size Enterprise branch office network. Next, the author shows you how to configure and troubleshoot basic operations and routing on Cisco devices. He also shows you how to implement, verify, and troubleshoot NAT and ACLs in a medium-size Enterprise branch office network. Finally, the author continues showing you how to implement and verify WAN links. This most excellent book offers a large number of questions to practice each exam objective that will help you assess your knowledge before you write the real exam. Perhaps more importantly, the detailed answers to every question will help reinforce your knowledge about different issues involving the design and configuration of Cisco networks.
