Entry Solution for Cisco Networking Certification
This book is the best choice who want to achieve in the popular IT certification of Cisco. Buying this book must be the first step to learning basic networking concept and also introducing about the Cisco router and switch. This book introducing IP Version 6 on Part V due to the 100-101 exam new objective. This book is suitable for who want to know about the basic of computer networking. It is quite easy to follow and understand the concept. But this book should be more application of the concept, it can make the book more interesting for me. Overall, this book is prefect.

Essential CCNA study reading
Please note: I am reviewing this book (e-book version) as a CCIE and not as someone who is preparing for the exam. I have taught CCNA classes for the Cisco Academy and helped others with their own preparation for the exams.
I wish this was one of the books I used when I studied for my CCNA almost 6 years ago. I took the 640-802 which is the set of books prior to this one.
The content is very complete and laid out quite well. This book provides the reader with more than enough information to understand the topics being covered in each section. It has definitely been expanded from the previous versions and editions. Subjects that I have seen individuals struggle with have been broken out into their own chapters and sections.
I really like that how more attention has been given to the IPv4 addressing chapters. Subnetting is topic everyone seems to struggle with. Even though the amount content for this section seems to be about the same as earlier versions, breaking it into separate chapters makes it much more manageable for the reader to study and retain.
The updated diagrams and configuration samples do a fantastic job of assisting the reader in understanding the topic being explained in the text. The addition of color to the diagrams and configuration samples help a lot, but this may be an e-book thing.
A couple of other things I like about this book: the Do I know This? answers are at the beginning of the chapter instead of at the end of the book (explanations are in the back though which is OK), the Final Review chapter gives a lot of great advice on actually studying for and taking the exam.
The only things I don't like about this book is it is missing the open ended questions and the hundreds of subnetting problems that I used. These may be on the DVD, even if they are not, I recommend purchasing the physical book or premium edition, whatever you need to do to get the DVD content. Reviewing the appendixes for the content you would be doing yourself a disservice if you didn't get it.
