    Posted May 14, 2009

    This is the WORSE Cisco book I have ever read!

    I have CCNP and CCSP certifications. I have been taking Cisco exams for the past 12 years. I've been teaching computers and networks for 10 years. Cisco books are known for being a dry read but this book is a disaster.

    The end-of-chapter questions don't match the chapter content. In Chapter 2, it even has a note that the answers to these questions may be in different chapters of the book. Then why aren't the questions re-located to the appropriate chapters? The purpose of chapter questions is to see if the reader understood the content.

    The Review Commands don't list all the commands in the chapter and include some commands not in the chapter. The commands are either explained poorly or not explained at all. Some of the commands are from obsolete versions of the operating system and no longer used. For example the "squeeze" command hasn't been used in at least 8 years. The book spends a lot of time on the CatOS commands even though this is NOT on the BCMSN exam.

    The writers (???) apparently suffer from "Lazy Instructor Syndrome". This book reads like someone copied and pasted pieces of existing Cisco articles together without any regard for logical organization or flow.

    The only reason why I can understand this book at all is because I already have years of Cisco experience. If you are trying to get your CCNP for the first time, try CCNP BCMSN Official Exam Certification Guide by Hucaby. It is a far superior text book.
