Do you need help in trying to pass the ICND1 and CCNA exams? If you do, then this book is for you! Author Wendell Odom, has done an outstanding job of writing the third edition of a book that is designed to make you much more knowledgeable about how to do your job. Author Odom, begins by providing a basic introduction for those who are brand new to networking. Then, the author introduces the terminology surrounding two different networking architectures: TCP/IP and OSI. Next, he covers the concepts and terms used for the most popular option for the data link layer for local-area networks, namely Ethernet. The author also covers the concepts and terms used for the most popular options for the data link layer for wide-area networks, including High-Level Data Link Control, the Point-to-Point Protocol and Frame Relay. He continues by introducing the basics of IP, including IP addressing and routing. Then, the author introduces the basics of TCP and UDP. Next, he shows you how to access, examine, and configure Cisco Catalyst LAN switches. The author also shows you how to configure a variety of switch features, including duplex and speed, port security, securing the CLI, and the switch IP address. He continues by focusing on how to tell if the switch is doing what it is supposed to be doing, mainly through the use of show commands. Then, the author explains the basic operation concepts of wireless LANs, along with addressing some of the most common security concerns. Next, he walks through the entire concept of subnetting, from starting with a Class A, B, or C network, analyzing requirements, making choices, calculating the resulting subnets, assigning those on paper, all in preparation to deploy and use those subnets by configuring the devices. The author also explores all things related to address classes and the IP network concept created by those classes. He continues by showing you how to quickly and easily convert between the formats, so you can practice before having to think more about what the mask does. Then, the author shows you how to look at the mask to discover key facts, like the size of subnet and the number of subnets in the network. Next, he shows you how to find and analyze the subnet in which the that IP address resides, including finding the subnet ID, range of addresses in the subnet, and subnet broadcast address. The author also shows you how to find all of those subnet IDs, given a network number and a single mask used throughout the network. He continues by showing you how to configure IP addresses, static routes, and one routing protocol: RIP Version 2. Then, the author features a scenario that examines the IP packet forwarding process. Next, he covers the concepts of Network Address Translation. The author also focuses on a few small WAN configuration tasks, plus NAT configuration using Cisco Security Device Manager. Finally, he suggests a plan for final preparation once you have finished the core parts of the book, in particular explaining the many study options available in the book. This most excellent book uses several key methodologies to help you discover the exam topics on which you need more review; to help you fully understand and remember those details; and, to help you prove to yourself that you have retained your knowledge of those topics. Perhaps more importantly, this book does not try to help you pass the exams only by memorization, but by truly learning and understanding the topics.

In response to the earlier reviewer who commented on the presence of a page of Errata. Yes, I do see it in this 640-822 3rd edition. But it is not really that many corrections. The publisher and author are behaving quite professionally by supplying this to the reader. That reviewer perhaps does not get around too much. Research monographs often come with errata pages. As I mentioned in my accompanying review on the companion book to this one, CCNA ICND2 640-816 Official Cert Guide (3rd Edition), the neat novelty here [at least to me!] is the presence of pre-quizzes in each chapter. It is a very nice user-friendly feature, that lets you decide upfront when entering a chapter if you really need to read it. An undoubted response to the hefty sizes of both books. Hopefully other authors of computer texts can follow up and do likewise when they have massive offerings. The book has a long discussion about the specifics of IPv4, dealing with matters like subnets and classful networks. Yet no mention of IPv6. The absence is a revealing look at how Odom views the marketplace, or at least how the Cisco exam that the book prepares you for treats that marketplace. What they are saying by omission is that IPv6 is a negligible factor in real networks currently deployed. Quite a contrast to the breathless books of the late 90s that predicted us all being on v6 by now.
